    I have been working at Detroit Tigers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Location, location, location, the energy is unmatchable.

    Cons

    It's only a part-time, no benefits. I would like to keep my weekend or evening hours if available, who would not want to work for the BEST Baseball organization in the continental US

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I could give them advice I would not be looking for additional work. I appreciate the opportunity the Detroit Tigers Organizations has extended me, having any job is a blessing having two jobs are true signs of a go-getter, but having benefits are priceless no matter the job. Facing high dental, vision, and medical bills defeat any opportunity to get more out of a paycheck. I recently looked into taking classes at an institution were I could better myself for the job at hand but being able to pay the tuition was my only obstacle. I guess it would be to my benefit to check to see if they have tuition reimbursement.

    I have been working at Detroit Tigers

    Pros

    It's baseball. Free seats. MLB pension. Annual front office trip to Cleveland or Chicago. Great networking opportunities. Cabrera, Verlander, etc.

    Cons

    The season is very long. Often work far more than 40 hours per week. Sometimes the budgets are very tight - do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training employees in their areas of expertise. Reward employees that show initiative and work hard. Hold people accountable that are not pulling their weight.

    I worked at Detroit Tigers

    Pros

    Great Working Environment.
    Many Perks to the Job.
    Get to see plenty of baseball being played.
    Can be an extremely fun place to work.

    Cons

    Long Hours, Little Pay.
    Inflexible when it comes to taking time off.
    Attracts clique type personalities.
    Baseball goes 9 innings, with no time limit meaning games can drag on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to help young interns and professionals grow in their roles.
    Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty as well as it shows real leadership, hence 'Lead by Example.'
