But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again."

        Pros

        When there was still a physical location, the people you worked beside were often some of the best. The pay for when I worked there was a little above average but not by much.

        Cons

        Ignorance, incompetence, and dishonesty are the basis to be successful. When I first started they did a PDIF where depending on your stats you could go from 11/HR to as much as 12.50, but unfortunately it was based on your AVERAGE stats and not just your overall so you could have a really great 2 months then hit a rough spot for a week and completely tank everything. They go through periodic layoffs during the holidays and they coat it as a ''benefit'' but it's anything but. They expect you to use your PTO to make up for the 2-4 weeks that you could be furloughed and if you run out they advise you to borrow against your following year...basically, you're always in the hole because you don't want to starve or get behind on bills from November to February. They make many, MANY promises that they have absolutely no intention of keeping from bonuses to promotions and have absolutely no shame staring you dead in the face and lying. It's almost like they make a competition between management and leadership with how much they can screw up.

      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
