Responsibilities Be ready for your shift Know where the emergency exits, pull stations, and fire extinguishers are located. No outside food or drinks are allowed in the venue. Bags can only be checked if you have been trained to do so.
Very Important! You need to move patrons through the line very quickly and efficiently. Direct patrons in the right direction and the usher will get them to their seats. Each event is different, but patrons are not allowed to bring in any objects into the venue except for coats/clothing and handbags. If a patron has an extremely large bag, poster, banner or other paraphernalia, ask the patron to step aside and wait. Call a uniformed officer or supervisor to approve/ disapprove the materials being brought in by patrons.
Know what to Look for! You need to know what to look for on a ticket. Unfortunately we do have people who fake counterfeit tickets. DatesTimesSeating Ticket color A credit card receipt is Not an entry ticket. Some times the season ticket holder/concert patron tear off the wrong part of the ticket; be kind and patient with them. If you encounter a problem with a ticket refer the customer to the box office.
