    I worked at Washington Redskins (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Redskins organization has a long and consistent history in the Washington DC area. There is a substantial status to working for them.

    Cons

    Upper management can be exploitative and the hours expected of employees are extreme, even for the level they work at and the seasonal nature of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be helpful during the long hours if people felt appreciated rather than assuming they are grateful just to work for the organization.

    I have been working at Washington Redskins

    Pros

    Working games for a pro team.. Game tickets.. History / tradition of old franchise.. Meeting players / coaches..

    Cons

    Long hours.. Low pay... bad PR at times.. poor on field product can have a negative impact on sales / brand. Only top VPs make good money.. You do it because you love sports and being associated.

    Current Employee - Game Day Staff in Landover, MD

    I have been working at Washington Redskins part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fits into your schedule due to most games being on Sunday at 1pm. Great place to work if you have no prior work experience. Learn a lot about customer service and how to interact with customers/fans.

    Cons

    Little pay, the stadium is in Maryland so you only get paid the national minnimum wage of $7.25 instead of DC minnimum wage which is around $9-10. Internships are unpaid. No employee perks and ridiculous rules. Was not allowed to wear ski pants or a hat even when the temperature at games were around 40 degrees and below.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more game day employee incentives.

    I worked at Washington Redskins as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    1) It's always awesome to see NFL players like Robert Griffin, Deangelo Hall, etc in the office and hallways
    2) You get to learn how a professional sports team works

    Cons

    1) They don't care about interns
    2) The account reps that were the interns bosses were great, but above them were mostly people who didn't care about you, the work you were doing, your name
    3) Lots of mundane intern stuff with little help/direction
    4) Very few full time jobs are offered to interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all of the interns you employ, make them seem a bit more important

    I have been working at Washington Redskins as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Always willing to talk and be helpful
    -Family type environment
    -Can be Fast-Paced (makes the day whip past)
    -Good learning experience
    -Provide lunch A LOT! (cake and ice-cream if a co-worker birthday)
    -Laid back environment, but still very professional at the same time
    -Ability to meet and work with some very important people in the organization
    -Free Parking

    Cons

    -Can have dead "work" days (I interned during the offseason, in-season probably doesn't experience this as much)
    -Some individuals can come off as misleading at times, in an attitude sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you're doing. Senior management in the department was great and friendly, really understood what it meant to be an intern and really wanted to see me succeed for my efforts. Now for management above my department, it wouldn't hurt to start to pay interns, even if minimum wage just for gas and food.
