    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 an 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 an 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 an 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.

    Interns are part of the team too. Don't disregard their role in the company.

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

    Pros

    Few perks and bragging rights to say you interned with the Washington Redskins
    Customer service staff are usually helpful
    Gain customer service experience

    Cons

    Ticket office interns do all of the real work for no pay, while Sales staff sits around and pretends to be busy.
    Despite all of the customer service and work that interns handle, they are still not respected by other staff members. Was introduced to new employees as "the people who open the door and answer the phone."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ticket office relies too heavily on interns. Consider hiring a full-time ticket office assistant that you can depend on, especially when the interns are not available.

    I have been working at Washington Redskins

    Pros

    - Looks great on a resume to work for the Redskins
    - Staff is friendly and great to work with
    - Managers work with you with any issues you may have

    Cons

    - Terrible pay, commission, and times
    - Little to no career advancement with the organization
    - Benefits are terrible among the industry
    - Organization only cares about the bottom line and not employee satisfaction or even customer satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more incentives to your employees and treat them like real people. Your sales staff, at all levels, brings in your revenues and deserves to be recognized and rewarded properly.
