DUTIES OF ARTSCENTER HOUSE MANAGER

 

The house manager is responsible for overseeing the box office during daytime, evening and weekend events and classes, selling tickets to events, and registering students for ArtSchool classes.  House Managers must have excellent customer service skills since they are often the first person with whom patrons will interact with. It is the house manager’s responsibility to assist everyone who comes to the box office and to have a presence in the box office at all times. House Managers report to the Box Office Manager and Managing Director. Administrative tasks may also be assigned by other department heads.

 

It is the responsibility of each House Manager to cover her or his assigned hours.  In the event that a House Manager is unable to cover his or her shift due to illness or other unavoidable circumstance, it is her/his responsibility to obtain alternate coverage (from among the other house managers) for the days s/he will not be able to work.

 

In unusual circumstances, when coverage is not possible to obtain, the house manager will inform her/his supervisor that coverage is unavailable.  The supervisor is then responsible for house management of that particular day.
