Security Officer (Former Employee) – 1280 Peachtree St Ne, Atlanta, Ga 30309 – June 17, 2018
A typical day at work was doing roll call and then being assigned to our post. I learned about art work. Management was laid back. Everyone at work got along with each other. The hardest part of the job was making sure that patrons did not touch the art work. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people.
Restaurant 1280 is casually elegant; the food great.

The management of Restaurant 1280, and all food and beverage activities on the 14-acre campus are well and skillfully managed. The management of the Arts Center itself is difficult to work with - so much political sniping, gossip, and extensive red-tape.

The overall job itself if not hard at all but the communication between workers and management is very poor. Management only look out for them selves and will lie right in front of your face. Even though the hours are full time hours they will never tell you that you are not full time. There are no benefits working here besides free tickets to plays. I love my co-workers they made it easier on the hardest days. What I learned working here, is how much of a money maker this job is and how upper management are really greedy.
high stress at the high museum with demanding schedule and no recognishun

unpredctable work load, you get a lot of last minute things to do every day. very understafed, they expect a lot from employees and your underpaid. lots of unhappy poeple looking elsewhere for jobs, high turnover. all WAC cares about is atendance numbers and thats it. higher up managment always unhappy. workspace is cubicles and poeple constantly checking what your doing. the art is the best part.
free admison to museum, good things happen sometimes.
turnover is very high, managment and leadership is horrible, pay extremely low, demanding environmunt, workplace is unequal and you get no recognishun for your owrk. guilted for going to lunch, extremely stresful environment, conservative enironment. staff is micromanaged.
Disjointed, inconsistent, but typically easy place to work if you like people
Ticket Agent (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 12, 2015
Strictly for the box office: Long tedious shifts (sometimes 10 hours) answering phone calls. Often times understaffed during busy seasons and hours cut during off season. Lackadaisical management. Little support from IT and higher offices. Disruptive and messy coworkers. Clueless patrons. You have to pay for parking, limited free parking in the area. If you have all of the patience in the world, this could be an easy place to work.
Paid lunch, benefits available after period of time worked
Management often not present or helpful; hours are limited if not full time.
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 23, 2015
Upper management does not value employees. Ideas only flow from top to bottom and career advancement is full of bias. Most employees have decided to settle for less or are actively seeking better opportunities elsewhere.
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 8, 2014
This is a very traditional and non-enterprising organization. The walls and interior are artistic but management and company culture is conservative and not embracing of innovation and change. An ok place to work if you have minimal career goals. This is an arts organization that is business as usual, with frustrated employees, out dated policies, with little to no growth opportunities for experienced professionals.
