    Pros

    The excitement of all the events makes it a fun place to work.
    Lots of opportunity to watch games and events.

    Cons

    wages are significantly below average. Paid overtime is not offered but rather you are supposed to coordinate your schedule so you have time off in lieu of working event days, but with events 5-7 days a week, its not possible to take lieu time. During busy seasons, (every season) I regularly worked 7 days a week, and once worked events 21 days straight with a 2 day break then at it again for another 9 days.

    Advice to Management

    Pay event and operational staff a lot more and hire more coordinators during busy seasons so that people can have adequate rest days.

    Best company to work for, hands down. I am always treated with respect and the management always ensures a great and safe work environment.
