Working at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts was simply Amazing. The National Symphony Orchestra is housed there, along with Theater for Young Audiences. Their stages always have enriching Theater Arts or Dance with Education Workshops from the given companies included.

Great people, tight budget

Fantastic work environment caused by unique mission to promote the fine arts with passionate colleagues. Budget shortfalls force internal teams to operate less than fully staffed.
Pros
Elite Arts Organization, good benefits

Box Office Usher (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 18, 2016
This is one of those jobs that doesn't pay much but you don't mind. This did not feel like work. Many retired professionals where my former co-workers. If you desire leisure part time employment, I recommend the Kennedy Center!
Pros
relaxing environment, professional, discounts on shows
Cons
wish job could have been full time & year round

The best place to work in the performing arts
Employee (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 8, 2014
The Kennedy Center is the place to be if you wish to work in the arts industry. There are many opportunities for growth and the organization values employees through internal promotion. Many opportunities for free tickets and seat filling opportunities for KC Honors and Mark Twain Prize. The entry level salary isn't great, but for the arts, it's definitely better than other places.
