About the position: Entry level positions with the interpretive staffs (Ships’ Crew) at the USS Constellation & Baltimore Maritime Museum offer a wide range of challenges and opportunities. Starting salary is between $7.00 and $8.50 (based on educational background). Promotions are tied directly to presentations and tours mastered.

Communication skills, courtesy, and knowledge about the site are of paramount importance.
