Great summer job to build your resume
Crew Trainer (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – November 22, 2016
Being a Space Camp crew trainer was a great experience, with many opportunities available if you seek them.
First it is a great resume builder. You gain extensive customer service and public speaking experience.
Second it is great fun. During training, you learn what you are going to be required to do by doing it yourself. Esstianlly they pay you to go to Space Camp and then pay you to pass that education and fun on to the next generation of space nerds.
Third, it was a great place to network. If you are an engineer especially, this is a great place to meet local engineers from some of the top companies in the business. Astronauts, scientists and engineers are there almost every day. Some of the engineers that worked on the rocket that took men to the moon volunteer here.
Fourth. Hours. During the spring, summer and fall , if you want hours and the pay associated with it, there are plenty to go around.
Management. I have read some of the other reviews posted that say management isn't there for you when you need them. This is untrue. Spacecamp has a great leadership team that is dedicated and encouraging to its staff. There is always one or another around to answer questions or help you when you need it.
In summary, great job, great experience, and great fun.
Experience, fun, management and staff. Astronauts!!!
Long hours make it difficult to have a life outside, but easy to save money
