I have been working at Archdiocese of New York part-time (More than 3 years)
Friendly staff. Fun and engaging events to be a part of such as concerts, shows, movie screenings, and talk backs. The chance to see famous celebrities up close.
When trying to tell the rules of the production and the venue to some patrons, they will disagree and do whatever they wish despite being told they cannot.
Advice to Management
Expand the marketing outreach beyond the Catholic community because some events may interest others that are not of the Catholic faith. Also, inform patrons on the website about the event and how tickets are sold.
I applied online. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY) in April 2013.
First met with HR which was a standard interview, then met with three regional director/supervisors who asked questions that were more specific to the work. Keep in mind that there are many politics within the organization, so you may have been a stellar candidate even if they did not make an offer. Contacts matter, so if you know anyone who knows any of the hiring managers, have them make a call for you. A large percentage of people are hired because of a personal referral, mostly because the hiring managers wear many hats and prefer to hire someone who has been recommended personally.
