What Employees Say
I have been working at Detroit Symphony Orchestra part-time for less than a year
My favorite thing about working for the DSO was all the comp tickets! We get weekly emails letting us know what performances we can go to for free and there's no limit on how many tickets you can get.... I would leave tickets in Will Call for my friends all the time. Additionally, anything that you can't get comps for you can still purchase at 20% off. If you are a musician looking for a part-time gig or some extra $$, I would highly recommend! Michelle Marshall, the Box Office Manager, is a gem. You can't have a better boss.
Pay is $11.50. Not a whole lot....but there is definitely area for promotion and internal growth however! They always announce new positions internally and are really good about encouraging moving up... in the DSO. A lot of full-time staff in the higher levels started out working in the Box Office as a Ticketing Specialist.
Advice to Management
Part-time staff often feels left out/forgotten/not considered in decision making when we are the ones who interact directly with patrons. The Box Office is the face of the DSO; this is an incredibly... important role and can make or break our reputation! Invest in these staff and it will come back as an investment in the DSO.
