Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 19, 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed my work at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre. I cleaned furniture, floors, windows, dusted, emptied trash. I serviced the restrooms. Unfortunately, the theatre went with a different cleaning company.
Assistant Audience Services Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 21, 2017
The Milwaukee Repertory theater is a living breathing organism and is constantly growing and changing. This is a very strong Upstairs-Downstairs environment to this place with communication primarily though email. If this is not the kind of communication you can work with, you will struggle. There are some amazingly kind and loving people there who will light up your day. There are also some very strong cliques which if you are not a part of, will make your time difficult there. Be aware that as a theater, it will take your time and a lot of your energy. Do not look for work there if you are unwilling to devote your time to it. If you are, this company might have your dream job for you.
Management Associate (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 31, 2017
Milwaukee Repertory Theatre never failed to give me an opportunity to thrive. The staff and management was friendly and open to everyone with regular meetings, open door policies, and encouragement to talk to supervisors and colleagues.
MRT produces solid, professional work. While there are some upper management positions that are hard to get along with or difficult to get to know, the department heads have a weekly meeting where each leader has a chance to discuss the issues.
As a management associate, you will be involved in the General Management and Executive Management of the theatre. You will attend Board Meetings and work with Company Management to make sure the flow of the office and administrative work is continual.
MRT is a big theatre producing multiple shows at once. It can become difficult to feel a part of the final product, the plays, if you aren't careful. Make sure to take time to see what work is happening on the stage.
friendly staff, professional art, understanding management
Fun and flexible working outside of the theater in the community
