  • 9 people are interested

We NEED Bus Greeters during the school year (October-June)! Boy, do we need 'em. Please help!
Help the thousands of school children who visit the Maryland Science Center have the best field trip ever! Bus Greeters serve a vital function by boarding arriving buses to inform students, teachers, and chaperones of the Maryland Science Center’s guidelines, provide a brief overview of exhibits, and assist teachers/chaperones with the check-in process. A bus that's been well greeted translates into students and chaperones who are more informed and polite when inside the museum.

How about you and a couple friends c'mon over to the Science Center and become our bus-greeting team!

Duties:

  • Board buses and greet students with a smile

  • Inform students and chaperones about Maryland Science Center rules, exhibits, show times, etc.

  • Assist teachers/chaperones with check-in

  • Help students safely exit their bus and enter the building

Required Skills:

  • Excellent communication and customer service skills; at ease with people of all ages

  • Ability to exhibit patience with school-aged children and their adult chaperones

  • Foreign language skills a plus, especially Spanish

  • Sense of humor helpful but not necessarily required

Physical Requirements:

  • Ability to stand for extended periods of time

  • Ability to climb in and out of buses

Training: Provided by Guest Services. All information you need to successfully greet a bus will be provided to you.

Schedule: SCHOOL YEAR ONLY, in the mornings, October-June. Shifts are available Tuesday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
Minimum Commitment: Two 3-hour shifts per month, but we'll gladly take more if you can!
