    I have been working at Manchester United

    Pros

    Free lunch, get to watch match and don't have to work every game. Get to serve high profile people.

    Cons

    Hours can be long on certain matchdays. Due to fixture times can in as early as 7:30am.

    I worked at Manchester United part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working there, great atmosphere on matchdays. The contract was a Zero hour contract, so you got asked before each match day if you could work the game. Great team of friendly staff. Biggest pro was being part of a really exciting match day when United won!

    Cons

    Not enough training, poor management on certain matchdays, sometimes not enough work. Didn't always get invited to the staff events, end of season balls, even though I worked most of the season.

    Former Contractor - Waiter 

    I worked at Manchester United for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training for entry level, helpful admin staff, free parking for staff, free food on shift. Excellent part time work as a student

    Cons

    Training was good, but pretty much thrown in the deep end after it. Expected to commit to every matchday, works for some, not others.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Manchester United full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to work with some great brands and people within the organisation are intelligent, driven, and hard working

    Cons

    Competitive and cut throat culture. People are opportunistic within my department as they are client facing and need to manage partner expectations. Expected to work on weekends on matchday with no compensation of in lieu days.
