Job Title: Box Office & Registration Associate - Full-Time (TEMPORARY)

Department: Registration

Reports to: Director of Registration

FLSA Status: Non-Exempt

Job Overview:

A Box Office and Registration Associate is a "frontline" customer service position that plays a vital role within the JCC's Registration Department and the larger institutional picture.

Most of the work of a Registration Associate is determined by the flow of public traffic. High traffic will often dictate what the associate does in processing registrations and communicating to constituents in-person, by phone, and by email.
