Best Place I've worked

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was a casual worker from mid 2017 up to September 2020, I was let go after the furlough got cut.The place and people were really fun. Staff are well taken care of. We had sizeable locker/changing room, showers, own staff canteen and fully functioning bar. My work was split between the cafes, bars, outdoor pop ups in summer and various bits and pieces . If you look for opportunity, you can make a lot of money! I would like to return in a different capacity, maybe in a few years!

Pros

Food vouchers, generous pay

Cons

not enough progression in my area but still had plenty to do

Casual, well paid, flexible, easy work

This is a good, well paid and easy casual job. You check tickets, usher patrons, bartend, sell snacks. You pick up rubbish at the end of shift. For most of the shift, you watch the show.

extremely fun workplace

A typical day at work for me would include interacting with not only customers but colleagues, giving my best always and learning from my surroundings. I became more aware of the different roles a workplace like a theatre can have. Management can be like challenging and requires are lot of skills to overcome. The hardest part of this job would have to be dealing with the more complicated clients and their concerns. the most enjoyable part of this job would be the people who work there.

Pros

watching some of the performances

Cons

long hours

Most Fun, Activity-packed group work experience in theatre I've done

Everyday was well organised, structured and planned. We knew what we were doing at all times and learnt soft skills applicable to every job. Theatre based/ Front of House activities included set designing, catering skills and customer service skills.

Audiences coming to the National Theatre are able to see a huge variety of performances and make use of the bars and restaurants inside so it's a really buzzy, creative vibe and the staff are really friendly and helpful.

It was a completley new thing.

Started work there from college for work experience. It was something very new that I had never done before but it was relevant to my Art and Design course. I really enjoyed the team work.
