Do not work here if you're looking for extra money.

I have been working at Madison Square Garden

ProsYou get to see free concerts or shows only if you work that particular show and It's a very beautiful environment to work.

ConsYou only work if there's a show. Most times, you'll work only 4 shows in one month or none at all for several months and every now and then you'll get a month when there's a show everyday. You will work on average of about 3-4 hours for every show you do work. Also contrary to popular belief, well at least for this theater, there are no benefits. This position is the face of the company and has the most interaction with the public, however you will not get comp or discounted tickets. Merchandise, Security, Bartenders, and Management have these perks. I don't know why Ushers are not included. The Ushers are underpaid compared to all other departments within the company and COMPARED to similar positions at other theaters.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
