Customer experience team member in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear
Relaxed and friendly environment Working as a customer experience team member, you do varied roles such as the bar, doors, auditorium. Best part is if you work in the auditorium you can watch the show and you also sometimes receive free tickets. Worst part is cleaning up after a show, picking up rubbish and doing toilet checks, cleaning any sick.
Deputy Chief Electrician in Glasgow, Glasgow
A busy theatre with a lot of variety. ATG are theatre people. There is no point having a theatre and not having shows. So the theatre is always busy with plenty of variety. Every show has its own challenges and requirements so every week (other than a 6 week panto run) is different. Work/life balance is what you make it. You don’t go into theatre expecting to have evenings and weekends off. So if you don’t mind working unsociable hours then all good.
It’s Ok.It’s ok,It’s a job and it could always be worse,But ATG are only concerned about lining the CEO’s pockets and there is no real care for the staff :(
Supervisor/Stage Technician and Other in Glasgow, Glasgow
Lacks commitment to its employeesHaving worked there for 11 plus years in many roles I can honestly say its a thankless task, only made bearable by the lovely people actually committed to making good theatre. Long hours, but every day is different. Zero hour contracts mainly with no signs of that changing despite please from the staff. A typical day involves building a set, or preparing for an event. It's hard graft, the hardest part being when you have tyo pack everything up at the end of a run.
