Friendly Place and Friendly Staff
Museum Assistant (Former Employee) – Leeds, ENG – 27 January 2016
A typical day at The Royal Armouries Museum consists of opening up the galleries at 9.45am and then switching on the projectors and checking all areas for litter and reporting faults that may occur before opening. Once open, we deal with customer queries e.g. where are the toilets?, what can you tell me about Henry VIII's Armour?.
You will find that, even if you're not into History(as a subject), you'll always find something there that will be of interest and you'll want to learn more about it.
The management are generally approachable, but,sometimes you might find you're repeating yourself with queries.
My colleagues always made me laugh, a great group of people to work with.
The hardest part of the Job was constantly being bored in the quiet periods i.e. Winter. and not being challenged enough.
The enjoyable part was watching the public walk away with a smile on their faces knowing that you gave them the information they was looking for.
Overall, this is not a bad place to work.
Friendly Staff, Job Security
No room for improvement.
