BUS GREETER

Help the thousands of school children who visit the Maryland Science Center have the best field trip ever! Bus Greeters board 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. This position isn't very glamorous, but it's very vital. A bus that's been well greeted translates into students and chaperones who are more informed and polite when inside the museum.+

Required Skills:

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

  • 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.
