    One of the best experiences of my life. Great environment. Its the baseball stadium.

    Cashier (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThis is a great job. You can watch parts of the game, It is never boring. So many people so many things to do and you can receive tips for certain jobs.

    ConsYou are always on your feet, you can work late hours but its all worth it, it's exciting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be cool to find a better way to get change to alcohol servers, even though I love the tips if I dont get change in time, it is still the right thing to do.

    Positive experience

    Concessions Manager (Former Employee) Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsFamily feel comes with the company. I enjoyed the people I worked with, and pay was satisfactory, especially when overtime kicked in.

    ConsLong hours and low quality of life. However, that comes with the food and beverage industry in general, so be prepared to work long days and weekends

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to find ways to retain more talent. Seems to be a lot of turnover with management

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poorly managed

    Suite Attendant (Current Employee) Glendale, AZ

    ProsGood money, plus tips. Love the guests!

    ConsManagement is lazy, lets a couple of select employees run the operation in the suites. These two are bullies to other employees and rude to guests. These girls will eventually result in Levy being sued for harassment!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't play favorites. Get the bullies under control or fire them altogether! Rotate the best suites so that everyone has a chance to make money.

    Purchasing Manager

    Purchasing Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsLateral movement is there but the promise of vertical movement gets lost in the process due to the sheer number of moving parts.

    ConsBenefits package is lacking for such a large company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlay to your employees strengths vs making a round peg work in a square hole

    Great for gaining experience

    Sales Assistant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Prosin sales you see a lot and learn a lot

    Consnot a lot of room to grow unless someone quits, even then they'll bring in outsiders instead of grooming and training from within... very disappointing when you re already over-qualified for your position.

    Advice to Senior Managementput some money into training and growing people and they might stay around...
