    I have been working at Grand Rapids Griffins full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced and fun environment, friendly front office staff, laid back day-to-day atmosphere but everyone still works really hard to put on a good show, to sell ticket packages that are unique and cost-effective, and to make an unforgettable experience for our fans.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard to move up depending on what position you are looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable, everyone is doing the best they can.

    Current Intern - Game Night in Wixom, MI

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Grand Rapids Griffins

    Pros

    Great staff Senior Management treats staff good Flexible schedule Big on family time Many perks of working for AHL

    Cons

    Sometimes games conflict with family events that you can't miss Sometimes higher up managers can be difficult to deal with Fans can feel owed something Lack of advancement

    Advice to Management

    Look for more ways to give perks to employees or more opportunities to move up for the ones who want to stay in the career or the organization. Take over the merchandise store and get a buyer in there who knows what fans want, not cheap stuff.
