We was doing a show within out university where the company was having particular issues with the artistic director of our production. This was causing a damaging effect on our process and quality of performance. I resolved this by talking to everyone in the group collective after the performance. I told them that I understood the frustration they are feeling however they need to not let it get to them and be professional and understand we have to all work together to have an amazing performance. I got a well done by all of the cast members which all agreed and we all worked together a lot nicer without all the negativity.

About Usher

February 6th, 2017

Ushers are also known as Ticket Takers, Lobby Attendants, Amusement Attendants and Entertainment Attendants. An Usher can find employment most commonly in movie theaters, sports venues, churches, amusement parks, and a variety of live entertainment venues.

An Usher should be able to handle many hours of standing during each shift. It is a physically demanding job that requires one to be physically fit. A lot of walking may also be required depending on the venue where the Usher is employed.

Problem solving is part of an Usher's role. Being able to anticipate potential customer issues is very important. Disputes over seating, over-drinking and seat-kicking can occur. Usher's should be able to handle large crowds of people without becoming overwhelmed.
An Usher is a customer-service based position so one must be able to handle public inquiry including customer disputes and general questions.

Compassion is required as an Usher will often encounter patrons with physical disabilities who may need assistance reaching their seat. Elderly patrons may also need additional care to find their seats and the exits in events where lighting is dim. Depending on the venue, some Ushers may be required to assist with cleaning up after the event wraps up.

Formal post-secondary education is not required to be an Usher. Depending on the venue, some roles may require the employee to be of legal age in their State. Any education related to hospitality and customer service can be an asset.
