Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum

Special Event Staff

May 2019 • Bristol, RI

What I liked

I love the location and history of the mansion and gardens. The staff is also incredibly friendly and supportive; I have made a lot of good friends and learned a lot about the industry from my coworkers.

What I wish was different


Wear comfortable shoes. The dress code suggests a more formal attire and one working here may feel compelled to wear nice shoes, but hustling around breaking and setting up tables and carrying trays of tea and food for six hours in heels or loafers, I can assure you that your feet begin to hurt. My advice: buy nursing, orthopedic, or others comfort enhanced shoes instead. They may not look as stylish but it will make your time during and after work significantly better.
