Working at the theatre is an ok job, but I haven’t felt the most comfortable there. There’s targeting and favourites with in the business, which gets very frustrating to with stand seeing all the time. I definitely learned how to work with people better then I did before. My shifts were short but not what I wanted
worked here for a few months, although a unique enciroment, it is run very poorly and not up to a standard i like to deal with, not the best enviroment to be a new person in as it felt like you get ganged uo on and pushed out the door.
There was a previous review I left in October 2018 but I was too emotionally charged at the time. I want to be fair and recount my experience properly without any negativity.
I was hired originally as a contract video technician. After half a year, I was hired on as a full time stage technician. I had a lot of unique responsibilities to help run the show from tech to stagehand work. I learned plenty of new skills through doing the magic shows and concert shows. It was very consistent work, especially during the summer months with daily shows.
There was a fair share of good and bad moments in my time working here. The crew I worked with were really great and there were many good moments. It was truly an unforgettable experience overall. It was an awkward time for me to leave but I knew in my personal career it was time to move on to something new.
During my last few months I had to pull more weight than what I was normally used to on top of my tech responsibilities. In some cases, it was beyond their control with crew members leaving backstage having their responsibilities left to whomever could fulfill them at the time.
My only criticism would be that open communication needs to be encouraged way more. Unfortunately, there were many times I felt like I couldn't speak up about certain issues I was going through when I took on extra work. I really enjoyed the team meetings after the shows, even though they were far and few in between sometimes.
Whatever you're opinion, this place is very unique to work for, just be sure you're mentally and physically prepared dependingmore... on where you apply.less
