    Pros

    It was cool working at Soldier Field. The people were pretty nice for the most part. It was a pretty decent job for the money.

    Cons

    There was always a lack of communication and therefore confusion. It seemed like some of the higher ups weren't all on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication.

    Pros

    Fun environment, not boring. Working at an arena is always different. Get to work with all kinds types of people from the Client to other coworkers.

    Cons

    Lots of hours for minimal pay. Management doesn't do much to help with morale during season when a ton of hours are being worked.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentive when employees hours go over 60+ consistently

    Pros

    I don't believe i remained for the company itself, it was the awesome managers who made my work experience great

    Cons

    The downside was working with people with mental and emotional challenges. Catering to customers was part of the job but babysitting and counseling co-workers was draining

    Advice to Management

    If people are constantly slacking on job duties and continuously having to be reminded of responsibilities instead of giving repeated prompts start giving pick slips

    Pros

    Good environment to watch baseball games. On good days you can make a lot of money. Flexible hours so it can be a second job for most people.

    Cons

    Seniority system based on age not time spent at the company. Older people who were using this as a secondary income were given priority for the better spots over young adults based solely on age.
