    I worked at Atlanta Braves part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Braves are a fantastic organization to work for. Definitely a friendly, teamwork atmosphere. I started at their minor league team and was eventually promoted to work for the major league team in Atlanta. I would work for any branch of the organization, I wish I could go back! As with any sport and entertainment based job, be prepared for flexible hours!

    Cons

    There is not a lot of turnover so it is not easy to get a full time job with the company. The interview process is also a little intensive considering the position I applied for was only part time and hourly. I had an in person interview, followed by an hour long phone interview full of difficult questions (I actually had to look some terms up while on the phone, and I am college educated), and then I came in for a third in person interview- all so that I could sell tickets (although I ended up in a better higher level position).

    Advice to Management

    Maybe review your interview process for lower level positions, but in general I think the organization is great at what they do!

    I worked at Atlanta Braves as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Real world experience, tons of training and mentorship situations. Fast past environment with the opportunity to have ups and down and see if sales is the job for you.

    Cons

    Long hours as expected in sports. Its not a guaranteed job after the program ends but they will help tremendously to get you into a career choice that will help after the program ends

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend more diversity within the program because the world is a diverse one that we live in. Great besides that.

    I have been working at Atlanta Braves part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Braves baseball:) interact with many fans during the game. . Everyone works as a team and other departments are always there to help you if needed. 99% of employees are happy to be there! Every company has that 1% but it is what it is.
    3 hours before game is prep work making sure everything is ready for fans. Then once gates open its: Hand out stickers, Give directions, Check tickets, call appropriate department if issue such as engineering or housekeeping. Shifts are generally 6.5-7 hours a game.
    Your shift is approved a month ahead of time so you know when you are working and when you aren't. Shift swaps are easy if you want to pick up a shift.
    Overall it's a fun place to work, you are there to help the fans and get paid to do so, upper mgmt is there and willing to answer questions and maybe you get to watch a little baseball!!!

    Cons

    Pay to park in employee lot.

    I have been working at Atlanta Braves part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a gameday worker, the job is a lot of fun and you meet tons of new people. I basically point people in the right direction whether it be to their seats, finding bathrooms, beer, funnel cakes, or any other item you can imagine. My goal is to make people smile and make their experience at Turner Field unforgettable.

    Cons

    They don't pay much, but that will probably increase over the years. My job requires me to stand almost the whole time, which is anywhere from 6-9 hours, your legs get tired during long 10 game homestands.

    I have been working at Atlanta Braves part-time

    Pros

    Positive work environment, supportive management, game tickets and other incentives to staff. Won't make a lot of money there but if your a baseball fan it's an enjoyable memorable experience.

    Cons

    Pay to park, drive there is only real negative especially for day games.

    Advice to Management

    One more day of training and/or testing to ensure staff knows how to properly direct guests to anywhere in park.
