Pros: benefits at full time status, 401k, pay is great, fun
Cons: not secure, physically exhuasting, not much movement or growth opportunities
Co-workers are like family. We support each other BOTH professionally and personally. For example, if a cast member gets hurt or sick during a show or for the day, cast members, who are affected by the insufficiency of the Cast, will accommodate their schedule for the day to help keep the show running.
With regards to Management, I personally think – more... Communication and Leadership could be improved; especially in the last year or so. I've noticed a decline in efficient Communication and stern consistent Leadership between the relatable departments with Management (i.e. Casting, Scheduling, etc.).
The hardest part of the job is the fact that it's a year to year contract; no security. In addition, we are required to work holidays; so we are away from family.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that we get to bring joy to people's lives by being able to do what we love and are gifted to do. – less
