    I worked at Atlanta Braves

    Pros

    Great environment, happy people who have a great love for the Braves. Flexible schedule scheduling during season

    Cons

    Pay is poor and does not increase. Temporary employment

    Advice to Management

    Easier said than done, but a pay increase is needed. Other baseball teams have done it for their game day staff.

  2. Great place to work!

    Pros

    It's a great work environment! The office is fun and very friendly. Working at one of the best ballparks (Turner Field) in the MLB is a big plus. The benefits are great! We get all of the holiday's off and the best part is the office shuts down for the last 11 or so days of the year for Christmas (paid time off on top of your vacation time).

    Cons

    81 home games makes for a long season ( but that's babseball). There isn't a clear cut growth path.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your staff and grow from there.

    Pros

    I worked as a Guest Relations Rep, on a team of about 8-10 people. Everyone got along for the most part, and our supervisors, Hannah and Erin ROCKED! They were very accommodating and really made sure that the team was taken care of. Training was easy and straightforward.

    Cons

    --The Pay
    --When innings go long, it can be pretty tiring. There were many times I went home exhausted and my feet on fire.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe offer extra monetary incentives for the longer hours?

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with.
    Everybody is treated equally meaning that everybody has each other's back all the time.
    Fun environment to work in. Tons of people to meet (average game about 20,000 attendance)
    Great opportunities to meet famous people. (local, international and superstars)
    Good hours, can work in multiple areas within your department.
    Poker chips, used for all sorts of recognition and can be used to get MLB and team items from a specialized store at discounted pricing. (or if you have enough chips, for free) Also plays into, if you work hard and stand out you get the recognition and there are a ton of opportunities for that.

    Cons

    Really drunk people.
    Stability of hours. You're only working home games and very occasional events if asked to do so.
    Unless you are a trainee or supervisor, you're not getting paid much more than minimum wage.
    You only work home games, so your schedule is already set, and there are times when you gets weeks off of work. So if it's your only job, you're not making much considering the varying hours. A game can last for a few hours, or almost all night long.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't need to change. It's great and they all do a great job.

    Pros

    Braves baseball:) interact with many fans during the game. . Everyone works as a team and other departments are always there to help you if needed. 99% of employees are happy to be there! Every company has that 1% but it is what it is.
    3 hours before game is prep work making sure everything is ready for fans. Then once gates open its: Hand out stickers, Give directions, Check tickets, call appropriate department if issue such as engineering or housekeeping. Shifts are generally 6.5-7 hours a game.
    Your shift is approved a month ahead of time so you know when you are working and when you aren't. Shift swaps are easy if you want to pick up a shift.
    Overall it's a fun place to work, you are there to help the fans and get paid to do so, upper mgmt is there and willing to answer questions and maybe you get to watch a little baseball!!!

    Cons

    Pay to park in employee lot.

  9. a job to work at because you love it, rather than for the pay

    Pandering people. Placement and moving up in the company seems to be based upon relationships rather than skill

    Pros

    As a gameday worker, the job is a lot of fun and you meet tons of new people. I basically point people in the right direction whether it be to their seats, finding bathrooms, beer, funnel cakes, or any other item you can imagine. My goal is to make people smile and make their experience at Turner Field unforgettable.

    Cons

    They don't pay much, but that will probably increase over the years. My job requires me to stand almost the whole time, which is anywhere from 6-9 hours, your legs get tired during long 10 game homestands.
