    Pros

    Get to see various artist when they perform at Phiips Arena.

    Cons

    Not feeling recognized for the hard work you put in especially on the very long days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees the recognication they deserve. Telling someone they did a great job or a thank you doesn't take time or cost a thing.

    Pros

    i saw a couple of celebrities and worked some fun events

    Cons

    employees are scheduled based on seniority and not job availability or job performance. it is unfair to hard working employees who are new to the company. there are no benefits or recognition for hard work. (this is the barclays center, brooklyn,ny location). can only move up if your are friends with higher up people. position is seasonal and very few hours depending on your position. very high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very unorganized and too clickish. very corrupt management and no one to turn to if you need help. too many people thinking they are managers that are not on the same page.
