Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Actor in SAG-AFTRA
SAGAFTRA is a Union to protect Actors
ACTOR (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 10, 2018
Doesn't apply. SAGAFTRA is a union. The Screen Actors guild simply provides help and negotiates contracts for proper treatment of actors. I am an independent contractor. It doesn't help keep a job and is not my employer.
Actress (Current Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – October 19, 2018
A commercial shoot day is 8 hours with OT after that. Workplace culture can be very professional on a union set. Everyone is glad to be employed with a union job. Job are contracted on a freelance basis. It is rare to get a long contract. Very competitive.
meals provided. Paid extra for use of wardrobe, etc
