    Mixed Bag

    May 16, 2022 - Grounds Crew Member in Boston, MA

    Pros

    -Cool venue -Flexible hours and clear expectations if you communicate with your manager effectively -Exposure to MLB players/coaches -Free Red Sox games and other events

    Cons

    -Abysmal pay -Fenway can lose its charm at times when you're there all the time -Lots of sitting around not doing much The biggest problem with this position is the pay. This type of employment is only really feasible if you do it part time in conjunction with an actual job and treat it as a hobby rather than a way to make money because there's no way you're going to be able to live in Boston even remotely comfortably on less than $15/hr with limited overtime. Most people on the grounds crew (aside from management) either live with their parents, provide secondary household income, or have another full time job. This should not have to be the case within an organization valued at over 3 billion dollars. It is a little disheartening to be on the field at the same time as a player making $30 million a year on the disabled list when you can barely afford to buy yourself lunch. Sadly, there are some tenured grounds crew members who are against raising starting wages for newer employees because "if it sucked for me, it should suck for you too". This is an antiquated and selfish way to think. It would cost the Red Sox between $500,000-$1,000,000 to DOUBLE the pay of all 50ish grounds crew members for the whole year. This is a negligible sum in the context of all operating expenses at Fenway but would make a marked difference in the lives of dozens of people. Additionally, better compensation would lead to more quality candidates applying for the crew.
