    I worked at Columbus Blue Jackets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a neat experience to work in the National Hockey League and being a fan and getting to attend all home games. Free tickets, staff skate, and company events.

    Cons

    Salary is absolutely terrible for Inside sales (17k base). If promoted (good chance because of high turnover) you will still only make 32k base salary as an Account Executive. Beyond a low salary compared to other Account Executive positions. 32K Base salary is where you cap out as well and expect to make only 50k per year MAX (including commission).

    Other than the low pay you will more than likely be emailed every hour on the hour about how many dials you have made throughout the day. You will be sitting in a cubicle without a wireless headset and you will be valued very little.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to not micromanage and be more open to advice. Let your employees have fun at work and make it more about having fun, rather than forcing people to work non stop with no breaks.

    Pros

    Interacting with players, seeing fans excitement, engaging with the organizations and nonprofits that were served, free tickets every now and then (we worked during the game so they went to our friends and families)

    Cons

    We worked very long hours w(8am-11pm on game days) and the culture was tough. Granted, everyone is very busy during the season but it was a pretty stereotypical corporate culture - lots of formal meetings, professional dress and full suits all day on game days.

    Pros

    Hands on, staff are more than willing to help and show you the ropes. There is a lot of freedom with the internship and they expect you to get the job done.

    Cons

    Not a very structured intern program. You can tell they are a developing organization and you will be learning with them as they grow.
