Graphic Design Intern (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 30, 2018
This internship was a great opportunity and experience. The other interns could be a little cliquey, but overall, everyone is very kind and helpful. Some of the internships differ in workload, but mine was very full, and I would often arrive at work earlier or leave later than my boss in order to get things done. They do provide a travel stipend, although that was not enough to cover my commute. Therefore, I believe that this internship should be paid, but it is still a very good internship.

Box Office Usher (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 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!
relaxing environment, professional, discounts on shows
Employee (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 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.
