Are you an engaged member of our Bay Area community and a winsome RBS-certified bartender? Are you punctual, prompt, collaborative, reliable, familiar with Square POS, and able to lift 25 lbs? Are you ready to work in a fast-paced environment such as our fully licensed Mason’s Bar at New Conservatory Theatre Center, San Francisco’s premier LGBTQIA+ and Allied arts organization?

If so, have we got an opportunity for you!

NCTC is hiring experienced, RBS-certified Part-time Bartenders to work at our Mason’s Bar between March 1 and June 9, 2024, with three starting Sunday matinee shifts available March 1-31.

Mason’s Bar opens an hour before showtime, thus Bartender call time is 75 minutes prior as follows:
– Wednesday and Thursday shifts start at 5:15 p.m. for a 6:30 p.m. service (7:30 p.m. showtime)
– Friday and Saturday shifts start at 5:45 p.m. for 7 o’clock service (8 p.m. showtime)
– Sunday shifts start at 11:45 a.m. for 1 p.m. service (2 p.m. showtime)

Most shifts include a 15-minute intermission and the occasional after-show or special-event service (e.g., Opening Night), with close-outs usually starting after pre-show or intermission.

Mason’s Bar has a full liquor license; mixology experience and current Responsible Beverage Service certification with California’s Alcohol Beverage Control are a must.

Compensation is San Francisco minimum wage as of July 2023 ($18.07/hour), plus cash tips and gratuities from credit cards cashed after each shift. Perks include complimentary tickets for performances and 50 percent off guest tickets, as well as the NCTC staff discount at the bar.

All NCTC staff are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and adhere to our Community Health agreements, which are continually evolving. Additional training will be provided.

This gig might be best suited to seasoned bartenders looking for a quieter opportunity to stay in the game whilst supporting nonprofit live theatre-making in the Bay Area!
