    I worked at Philadelphia Eagles part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to develop team building skills. Fans are energetic and passionate at all ages!

    Cons

    You need to be willing to give up your Sundays during football season.


  2. "Eh- it is an ok seasonal job. Just don't expect any perks or deals on merchandise just because you are a fan of the team"

    Pros

    I worked with a bunch of nice people. Pretty laid back job not too stressful.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are no"special perks" or working in the merchandise department. I am not sure what I was expecting, but discounted merchandise would have been nice.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been nice to have been given a path to advancement. I was seen as just a seasonal employee without room or opportunity to grow.

    I worked at Philadelphia Eagles full-time

    Pros

    Amazing (non paying) Perks
    Amazing People
    Amazing Experiences
    Amazing 401k/pension (but only VPs and execs can really take advantage of this because everyone else lives paycheck to paycheck)

    Cons

    Pay is beyond abysmal. After working here for a few years I had less than $500 dollars to my name when I moved on to a new job. However, this can be said for just about every entry level role in sports. The hours are very demanding and the pay for said work is laughable, well beyond legal minimum wage.

    No ability to grow internally. If you're lucky enough to get an entry level role, you're not advancing any further. They handpick managers from other teams and refuse to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, and try to change the poor working in sports pay culture that exists in this industry

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    after passing a phone interview and stadium interview in a suit for a $9 an hour job you are given a framed picture taken with 2 cheerleaders when you are hired. They also give you an eagles ball cap and a winter ski hat.Free remote parking near the naval shipyard and very slow school bus transportation to the stadium and back to the parking lot

    Cons

    very high turnover.The staff for guest services is 817 people.To make it thru the football season the team had to hire an extra 450 people.Very long hours ,starttime could be up to 4 hours before the start of game.Also you could stay well over an hour after the game.Scanning tickets for hours with very angry and drunk fans stuck in long security lines is painful.Up to11 hours was the total amount of time from leaving my house and returning home after a game.traffic is bad after the game

    Advice to Management

    increase the pay and make the job benefits so good that people want to work for the team for years
