I worked at Windy City Fieldhouse part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work outdoors, and fellow part-timers are good people.

Cons

Everything else. The pay is terrible (minimum wage), despite the fact that the client pays WCF an extraordinary amount per staff member at the event. The working conditions are a nightmare, and the on site manager make it feel like a gift if they give you a bottle of water on a 8 hour 95 degree day.

Advice to Management

You need to be more visible and possibly speak to the part-time staff once in a while. Most of us had no idea who you were. I went out of my way to work a 15 hour day starting at 5:00 AM with one of the owners (with no overtime or bonus) and he didn't even remember my name afterward.

    I worked at Windy City Fieldhouse part-time

    Pros

    I held this job when I first moved to Chicago, getting to the site was a bit difficult because I had to take transit but I really did enjoy my experience working on the corporate scavenger hunts.

    Cons

    Not exactly a high paying job by any means, minimum wage I believe it was. More for the experience and resume listing.

    I have been working at Windy City Fieldhouse part-time

    Pros

    Great active work, company does a lot of business

    Cons

    The company does not pay competitively for industry, takes advantage of employees with no chance to advance career, makes a lot of money which is funneled to owners, few other employees benefit, would rather be constantly training new employees than invest in the employees they already have

    Advice to Management

    poor business model
