    Pros

    Great perks, incredible coworkers! Everyone is always helpful, flexible work schedule to fit your ability! Overall, very great place to work

    Cons

    Sometimes the shifts are short, and sometimes they're super super long! Some customers can be really rude and you have to act like it doesn't bother you, which can be difficult sometimes.

    Pros

    get to see every game. exciting atmosphere to work in daily and great people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management really does not care one bit about you. As long as people are attending the games and buying their concessions your just another employee to them and theres plenty more that will take your place

    Pros

    Nice perks (games/concerts/special events), neat atmosphere being at Fenway Park, co-workers. World Series games were fun.

    Cons

    Low pay, uncomfortable conditions (working outside rain/heat/wind/cold), no room for advancement unless you went to one of the "preferred" colleges.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if you said Hi to game-day staff when walking through the concourse. Job openings should be sent to ALL employees (gameday, seasonal, etc), not just Front Office. A lot of untapped hidden potential in the folks who currently work just gamedays and would like to advance. Amazing how new college graduates with little to no work experience in the real world get hired, meanwhile people who have been working there for years never have an opportunity to even interview.

    I worked at Boston Red Sox part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall had a great experience. If you like working in the sports industry this is a great place to start and get some experience. Get to see and experience things you would normally never get to do as a fan. Worked with clients most of the time entertaining them and showing them around the park. Co-workers were always friendly and willing to help. Thought they did a good job recognizing your achievements.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up. As you can imagine most people enjoy their jobs and therefore there are never any openings. Most employees are underpaid, unless you are able to make it to upper management. You stick around because of the people and perks. Defiantly would have liked to stay but no opportunity to move up.

    Pros

    Management makes sure to show employees how much their dedication is appreciated. Very open and communicative work environment, always kept up to date on changes, company goals, etc. Benefits and perks are great, and culture is very supportive and encouraging.

    Cons

    Ideas are welcomed and listened to regularly, but it is VERY difficult to effect change. Pay isn't very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time out among the fans and staff to gain a better understanding of changes that need to be made.


  9. Impressive organization; could do more

    Pros

    As one might expect, it's a very "team-centered" environment. With a relatively small number of employees, I felt like they did a pretty good job of bringing us all together and making us feel like we were all working towards the same goal. The benefits were solid, as were the perks. There are lots of smart, motivated people working there.

    Cons

    The traditional "office" setting doesn't seem right for a place that does such unique work. I would have liked to see more creative thinking in terms of schedules, workplace atmosphere and interaction between departments. Also, some people developed an air of superiority that I assumed was because of the job - not appealing.


  10. Incredible experience
