"Nice place to gain experience"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in United States

I worked at Skylight Opera full-time

Pros

Skylight was a low-key environment when working as part of the administrative staff. Small staff. Flexible schedule, allowed a casual start/end time. Vacation was minimal the first year, but

Cons

Unfortunately, they haven't kept pay competitive. Most people have worked many years without a raise or even a cost of living adjustment. High staff turn over, seems to revolve every few years.

Advice to Management

Skylight is a real community gem. Productions are clever. Fundraising needs more emphasis. Competitive pay would keep people on staff for a longer period.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Skylight Opera (Milwaukee, WI) in Jan 2012

    Interview

    Sent a resume, and then met with the Development Director. The interview was about 45 minutes long. Time passed quickly. Questions weren't tough at all. Really just wanted to confirm my experience, knowledge and learn about my working style. It was a good fit. I wanted to know more about how the previous fiscal year had closed, since the documents weren't publicly available at the time. I appreciated an honest answer, and also learning about the plan for improvement in the year ahead.

    How do you think you'll do using a different database than what you've previously used?
