    Pros

    The organization is well run, and the people are great. The staff is relatively small, which means you were lots of hats and do a lot of work outside of your job description. But it is a good learning experience and you become a well rounded person there.

    Cons

    as with most musical organizations, the pay isn't great. Financial stability will always be a question to consider, as they are very much effected by state and local funding.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Toledo Symphony Orchestra (Toledo, OH) in November 2011.

    Interview

    First you have to send a resume to the orchestra for them to evaluate out of many resumes sent from all over the world. If your resume is selected tYou come to Toledo with the other musicians that are selected to audition. There are several rounds of auditions. If you make the first round you go on to the second, etc. The audition is for a panel or and orchestra committee plus the musical director of the orchestra. The auditions is behind a screen so that nobody can tell who you are or what race or sex you might be. The amount of rounds of auditions depends on the amount of players and how close they are in ability. If you win the final round then you are offered the position. There is some discussion as to your availability, you work status in the US and the benefits offered by the orchestra.

    Interview Questions

    • The asked about my availability and what i thought of the benefits offered. Very Little of the process involved a spoken interview, most of it was the audition.   1 Answer
