PHIT Is Hiring!

PHIT is growing rapidly and is now seeking front-of-house staff for our venue to help ensure the smooth running of the theater on performance nights. If you’re a fan of comedy with a cheerful, friendly, and helpful disposition who has some free time in the evenings or during the day on the weekend and wouldn’t mind a little extra money coming in each month (in some cases) we want to hear from you.

At present we are hiring for two different positions, both of which are hourly wage jobs:

  • House Manager: our House Managers are responsible for opening/closing our venues in a timely manner, checking the cleanliness of the public and performer only areas of the venue to guarantee that they are ready for shows, ensuring volunteers and performers arrive on or before their call time and contacting those who do not, handling any customer service issues that arise after the building opens to the public, and making sure performances run on time and according to the schedule. They work with a team that includes the Executive Director, Artistic Director, Producers, and other front-of-house and tech staff.  House Managers work three (3) shifts of between 6-8 hours during the weeks PHIT has performances – approx. two (2) weeks each month (with a possible expansion to every week of the year in the future). PHIT currently seeks 4 House Managers (two primary staff and two “alternates” to work occasional shifts) for these paid positions.

  • Box Office Manager: The Box Office Manager/Group Sales Coordinator will oversee the entirety of PHIT’s box office operations. In the PHIT Office on non-performance weeks, these duties will include ensuring all events are accurately listed and tickets are made available for sale at the correct prices via TicketLeap as performances are confirmed. At the performance venue these duties include the day-to-day responsibilities of making sure there is a staff member from your team (including yourself) scheduled to be present at the box office for every PHIT performance, insuring the cash drawer is stocked with change, the ticketing system is set up and running correctly, and all paper tickets and ticket selling paraphernalia are fully stocked for each evening. Additionally, the Box Office Manager/Group Sales Coordinator will be responsible for handling request for tickets from any large groups hoping to see a PHIT performance at a reduced rate. The Box Office Manager will work approximately 5 hours per week in the PHIT Office during non-performance weeks and may schedule themselves for three (3) shifts of between 6-8 hours during the weeks PHIT has performances – approx. two (2) weeks each month (with a possible expansion to every week of the year in the future). PHIT currently seeks one (1) Box Office Manager for this paid position.

  • Box Office Staffer: The Box Office Staffer will work PHIT’s box office on the days and evenings of performances – selling tickets to the current performances – and serving as a greeter to arriving patrons. They will arrive in time to prepare the box office before the house opens to patrons, manage and reset the cash drawer between performances (if applicable) and reconcile the box office at the end of their shift. This will require the Box Office Staffer to be trained on PHIT’s ticketing system (TicketLeap), and to be knowledgeable about PHIT’s general ticket policies, and lists of patrons and performers entitled to complimentary or discounted tickets.  Box Office Staffers are scheduled for 2-3 shifts of between 6-8 hours during the weeks PHIT has performances – approx. two (2) weeks each month (with a possible expansion to every week of the year in the future). PHIT currently seeks three (3) Box Office Staffers (two primary staff and one “alternate” to work occasional shifts).
