    I worked at Phoenix Suns full-time

    Pros

    Great training program for sports sales, its considered one of the best places to learn NBA best practices and the commission structure is favorable if you can move premium product and full season packages, great coworkers that are mostly transplants so they become your family and make the long hours more fun

    Cons

    Micromanagment is King here, very stressful and often times management prefers to punish employees rather than reward them, they will make you work 12hr shifts if you mess up or force you to come in on saturdays if you havent hit their activity metrics, employees are run into ground with long hours, no dinner breaks before game nights and your weekends do not exist during the season

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    empower your employees and make them feel valued not replaceable

    Long hours- nights and weekends required, sales positions turn over quickly, lots of pressure to sell and competition with teammates

    Allow staff to be more creative in their Sales efforts- stop micro managing everyone
