Fun workplace and meet many people from around the world
Space Camp Counselor (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALApril 15, 2014
Pros: free lunch, meet great people and staff, enjoyable work schedules
Cons: no benefits, layoff one week a year, may be scheduled to work 15 hr day
There are many areas you could work here, such as missions, or you could lead a team all week. Management is pretty good, there are a few that are difficult to work with. Hardest part of this job is the constant changing that can happen in a team's schedule.

A career trap
Sales (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: amazing museum, exposure to different culutures
Cons: low pay, poor management
When you first start working at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, you feel like you are about to change the world, but the truth is, the company is poorly run. Obviously, any position you get will require that you go beyond the job description, which is not a position; however, on numerous occasions, employees are shuffled from department to department – more... into positions that they are not even interested it. The reason this happens is if you are not performing in the manner that a director, manager, or the CEO prefers, instead of talking to you about those issues, they will move you into an area of less significance. It seems almost a passive-aggressive way of making you leave without having to fire you.
There is almost no opportunity to advance and pay raises are out of the question. I do not recommend working at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center; you will find yourself trapped, overworked, and under-appreciated. – less

Fun job. Job is never the same. I could work simulations one day, be a camp counselor one day, then work special events that night. Mainly I get to train and have fun with kids all day

The company is a good company, the space program is iconic.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALMarch 15, 2012
I worked there as a sales associate, the spring and summer is the busiest time of year at the Space & Rocket Center. It is a great seasonal opportunity for a teenager or anyone for that matter.

Crew Trainer Level 3 (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALFebruary 25, 2012
Pros: free lunch on long shifts, free museum admission
Cons: long hours; temporary employee status
USSRC is an excellent place to work! Very fast-paced job; however, training is extensive and they will make sure you KNOW all information before instructing campers. Plenty of opportunites for advancment.
