Employment Benefits

Huntington staff members have various opportunities to enjoy this beautiful and educational environment.  Some walk through the gardens during break periods, while others enjoy interactions with colleagues at the coffee cart or the café.  All staff are invited to attend the annual holiday luncheon and the annual staff picnic held here on the Huntington grounds.  As new exhibitions open, staff are invited to view the exhibitions and hear from the curators during Staff Preview events.  Employee discounts are also offered in the Huntington's Bookstore, and for other entertainment and cultural venues.
