Productive workplace with good support systems
While being at the Newark Museum, there are multiple educators that help lead us in our paid internships and are very supportive. Every moment is a good one and we are constantly learning how to do different things. For example. we are taught to file papers, work a cashier, give large and small group tours, work the planetarium, and much more. A work day is pretty simple and straightforward, but not always easy. There are days where it gets very crowded and hard to deal with but we never fail to meet the expectations, or rise above them, despite the struggle it may seem to be. All of the educators and interns have great relationships and tend to work together with no problems.
Pros
Free lunch, great environment, and good relationships
Cons
No benefits

Cool to work if you're into art.
The Museum is a great place to work if you're in upper management or if you're a student and live with your mom. Because of funding sources, they don't pay very well. They do not pay a living wage and you will not be able to support yourself off their wages alone.
Pros
Superior networking opportunities if you're in certain management positions
Cons
low wages, few hours availible to work, some individuals are very bias

Good place for youth to work at
The environment is very relaxed because there is never a lot of visitor traffic. The programs and events that the youth host are the most memorable memories.

Typical day at the Newark Museum
The job allowed me to become more culturally aware about my surroundings and all over the world due to the environment and artwork that constantly surrounded me.

Fun place to work
As an intern who only worked 1 day a week, i must say that the people who worked with me as well as my supervisor was so nice and worked together to accomplish whatever work we had for the day if we finished early, we would go out to eat or play games before cleaning up the office.
Pros
relaxed work environment, lots of stores near by, exhibits, zoo
Cons
slow paced

It was a good experience.
I organized files and helped other workers with anything that was needed. My experience also gave me knowledge in dealing with communication and preparation.

Serving as an assistant for my manager was very engaging.
A typical day at work involved doing several Microsoft Excel projects ,filing, and attending to the phone. This increased my filing skills and my verbal skills as well.

Great place little room for advancement.
I worked in Education so its a very busy department. Its great working with the community, schools and other institutions. But like many Museums there is little room to grow within the institution and sometimes it just takes patience for other opportunities to come up.
Pros
Great Benefits Package!
Cons
Sometimes other Departments can bump heads with yours.

Great place to work! Teaching people stained glass was a very rewarding experience. My boss was a great guy to work with/for. I would love for them to reschedule my class but probably will not happen because there was little interest in the technique when I left.
Pros
Free admission to the museum!
Cons
Long day
