Good Opportunity for those who seeking experience at Events/Venues
Usher/Coat Check Attendant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 24, 2017
My typical day at work consisted of signing in and then getting briefed by the supervisors/managers about specific things about the event everyone should be aware of. The shifts I worked were from 4-5 hours long. On one shift, I was asked if I was interested in working (earning) some extra hours. (over time). It's cool, because there is no pressure applied. It's up to you.
What I learned, and noticed was how many people it takes to handle a venue space of this size. I have worked at venue spaces before but never a place that can handle 3,000+ guests. I was initially astonished by the number of ushers, security it took for events to run smoothly. There were other smaller details I noticed (learned) as well. i.e. the handling of items not permitted in the venue, the accommodation of guests with disabilities, etc.
Management is great, the people who handle the scheduling are mature, understanding. They are very flexible. So if you looking for flexibility, this is place you may want to consider working for Live Nation.
In terms of the workplace culture, all of the co-workers I worked with were all pleasant, friendly and supportive. In fact on my first day, I worked with two other co-workers and we got along just fine.
In my opinion, the hardest part of the job is for those who are not accustomed to loud music, may find the music performances too loud for them.
The most enjoyable part of the of job, is the opportunity to listen to great music performances at a great venue in San Francisco.
Flexibility, Easy Going Co-Workers, Understanding Management
Loud Music May Be Too Much For Some
