    I worked at Baltimore Symphony Orchestra part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EXCELLENT management, committed to developing staff. They are always assisting patrons, as well as staff. Ms. Tiffany Bryan, the Front of the House Manager, is my favorite and best manager thus far. She cares about her staff a lot, and looks out for them in every way she can. She makes expectations very clear, and demands the best, but everyone wins when that happens. She is tough in good ways, and is understanding to ushers when patrons are unreasonable. The way she structure things gives the other managers opportunities to step up and take ownership/be leaders, as well as all ushers. New (paid) and volunteer Ushers are trained by Tiffany, as well as by other ushers. Ushers are cross-trained to know how to work each station in the building. Tiffany is efficient, caring, committed to her staff and committed to making sure that patrons' experience at the Meyerhoff is smooth and enjoyable. She is also flexible with scheduling, especially for students. I really liked the rest of the staff and the volunteers, and going to work was fun because of the community. SO glad I had the opportunity to work there for 2 years! I would do it all over again.

    Cons

    Lots of shifts during the best hours, like nights and weekends, for little pay. Shifts sometimes ended late, and often there would be a morning shift the next day.

    Advice to Management

    None! Very happy with management. : )

They were direct and honest regarding the anticipated work enviornment and made me fee completely at ease. I would say overall the interview process was positive even though I was not ultimately selected for the postion.
