    I worked at Tampa Bay Lightning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You meet some cool people, and this could be the perfect job! If your passive and just want to make a schedule and not hold your employees accountable then this is the place for you! Great lunch buffet three times a week. If your a Lightning fan the perks are awesome! They will pay you $65k!

    Cons

    There is no safety culture, they are not in compliance with OSHA standards! Employees are stealing company tools....The culture is terrible, there are employees who have been employed there for a long time. These employees think their untouchable and have been able to do what they want when they want! When you hold them accountable they come together and Fabricate lies about you to HR. Then HR doesn’t even talk to the accuser rather they make a decision with out hearing both sides of the story. This culture appears to get enforced from the top down! There are some good people working there, but without the backing of management you’ll never change the culture. It’s the inmates are running the asylum mentally! They are taking on several new buildings with no new full time employees, so scheduling is challenging. Employees aren’t quick to respond to direction but quick to run out the door at quitting time. There are just some vindictive ugly humans that have ran off several managers! So if you want to collect your money and let the status quo continue...by all means this is the job for you, but if you are brought in to change the culture. Buyer beware!

    Pros

    Great to be in sports and a great city

    Cons

    No appreciation for hard work. The leadership is so cliquy and changes directions too frequently. Kissing up is more important that hard work.

  7. "Spoils you for working for any other Tampa Bay teams"

    I have been working at Tampa Bay Lightning part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is exceptional. Depending upon where you are assigned to park (but most everyone) gets bussed from your parking garage to Amalie Arena. The bus has A/C, cup holders, and comfy seats. So much better (and safer) than other places in which you must walk long distances in the dark to your car alone. My manager/supervisor was extremely conscientious about making sure we are happy and not feeling unwelcome or uncomfortable when you are the new person. If you really care about your customers or guests having a great experience you will be appreciated - no question. Best place I've worked hands down!

    Cons

    I can't think of anything.

    I have been working at Tampa Bay Lightning full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is great and easy to get along with. There are tons of benefits to working full-time. Great all you can eat buffet 3 days a week at work. Periodic chair massages. Employee engagement activities such as field day, costume contests (halloween), lightning spirit casual days, pie eating contest, etc. Get to witness tons of amazing events firsthand and play a role in their production. My boss actually listens to me and we get along great, better than any boss I've ever had. Budget to make things happen. Free dental, vision insurance. Health insurance is very cheap and effective. 401k plan is very good. Reimbursement for personal gym memberships. Free playoff tickets for every playoff game?! Free schwag quite often. Free game tickets when they're available. Discounted concert/game tickets. Excellent work/life balance, very high rate of gain on vacation days. Vacation days are separate from sick days. Free short-term disability. Random catering from our partners in food, such as Chick-Fil-a. Can voluntarily work and witness any concert or event I choose, though just for work. Part of a great team that believes in a one team mentality, if you need anything done from any other department for any reason that department will help you out. In my position I am privileged to provide assistance with every department in the building when they need it, and I get along with all of them well and feel very appreciated. I universally enjoy every single person that works at this company. I don't know many of the part-timers (who only work games) but they all seem pleasurable as well and committed to providing world class + service to our guests. Where was I.. Employee training that can take your level of service to the next level. Seeing famous people every other day. Yearly raises. Bonuses if the team takes the cup or makes it to finals. Employees are rewarded for good work on certain events, such as happy hour for the All-Star game. Stunning Christmas party every year. Lots of celebrations. Management and HR will listen to your concerns and act on them. I get along amazingly with everyone in my department especially. People can understand my sometimes over-the-top sense of humor. Pay is what you'd expect for my position but raises will push me beyond that. Management all communicates well with each other and keeps employees updated. There are no unexpected surprises at the Lightning because everything gets told to us when we should be told.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement in my department but that is typical of IT departments, few layers are present in an organization with fewer than 10,000 employees. It can be difficult to get a full-time position. I know some people that have been part-timers for quite a long time and they won't be upgraded to full-time due to budgeting restraints on personnel. I was fortunate
