    Left after two months

    Food Worker/Cashier (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDecent pay, fun to be at games and events, you get the opportunity to work at different stands in the arena, sometimes the customers tip (avg. $5 a game), flexible scheduling

    ConsManagement isn't helpful, stressful environment and I found it hard to relate to employees. There is no sense of team or group efforts; everyone seems to be there for themselves and want to get out as quick as possible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know employees better on a personal level

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I enjoyed it thoroughly, but I'm not distraught to be leaving.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat atmosphere, especially for sports fans. Occasional tickets to games.

    ConsDoesn't seem to be much vertical movement in the company. Not enough full-time work to go around.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IT Intern Review

    IT Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe creative idea was definitely the biggest experience. Make it count!
    Management and my coworkers were super friendly. I had the greatest boss who tried to make everything work and knew it wasn't the most exciting job.

    ConsPay is really low for interns. They really try to squeeze every penny out of you.
    I learned everything in the first week and just repeated after. I had some weeks of absolutely no work where I twiddled my thumbs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the interns less mind numbing work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bartender (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe tips are wonderful! I only work 4 nights a week, but by my second night I'm able to pay my rent lol! The atmosphere is professional and you get to meet many celebrities.

    ConsCan become very busy!!! (but that's the life of a bartender)
