Cleaner (part-time) in York, North Yorkshire
on 31 July 2023
Cool place to work
The National Railway Museum is a great place to work. The staff are incredibly kind and, although the work can be tiring, it's very rewarding to see the museum clean, tidy, and ready for visitors.The pay rate is only slightly above minimum wage but it's certainly nothing to scoff at, especially with all the amazing benefits you get as a staff member (private health and dental, staff discounts, fr...

Nice place to work but low pay
Overall the museum is a really nice place to work, but struggles with a culture that is not collaborative, uninspired and unaccountable.

Not a nice place to work for, so glad sad days and stressful working hours are over.

Not a good experience
I worked at the national railway museum for around two months, my whole experience was bad. The training to do the job is basically non-existent, "refer to the book" is their idea of training. Now I am in a great job with thorough training where the company takes care of their employees i now realise how diabolical of a place this was and how useless the training was to do the job, maybe i wasn't ...
