Sales & Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 11, 2014
Typically I am stationed at many locations throughout the museum. I sell tickets to special exhibitions and renew/sell memberships to patrons. I work 40-55 hours a week in this department with zero benefits in health care, sick time, and vacation time. The hardest part of the job is the amount of dedication I have put in with little reward/encouragement in return. The most enjoyable part is the satisfaction I get from helping a patron better their experience at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
Pros
plenty of hours
Cons
no benefits

I was very proud to work there. Challenging to keep up with all the change happening at once across all areas of the museum. Senior leadership is doing great work to stay relevant to new audiences and serve the community.

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts - great place to grow.
Manager, Visitor Services Dept. thru June 1988 (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNApril 15, 2017
Great training and advancement opportunities when I worked there from 1973 to 1988. I learned a tremendous amount about customer service, office administration, interpersonal skills, employee development, and the essentials of museum practices and philosophy.

Very employee-supportive environment.

As a non-profit organization, however, compensation was not commessurate with community wages. As a result, there was ongoing employee turnover. This disrupted projects and called for ongoing staff training and development. (I believe that compensation parity has improved since I was last employed there in 1988.)
Pros
Wonderful co-workers, excellent levels of work engagament.
Cons
Wages and salaries were lower than cmmty. norms.
