Strength Coach (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 27, 2015
Lots of work, and not much pay, but you get to go to the baseball field everyday, and work with fun people. Because the pay is low there is lots of turnover. Although, this is beneficial if you are willing to stick around, because you will move up the ladder.

Very fun place to work and has great management. It is ultimately about the bottom line but they also focus on employee morale and rewarding good work and accomplishments - however in ways other than salary. The only downfall is that so many people (fans) want to work there that they can easily get away with paying lower salaries.
Grounds Crew Intern (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 13, 2015
Typical day was preparing the field and batting practice. I learned that working for a professional sports field taking means you make the field absolutely perfect everyday despite what mother nature and constant games are thrown at you. The players need consistency. Management oversaw the most important aspects of the job like tarping. Fenway had many grounds crew workers, which lead to a fun work environment. The hardest part of the job was to be constantly on-call for pop up thunder storms and long days. The most enjoyable part was the environment of working for the Red Sox. It's not everyday that you get to drag the field between innings.

Professional Baseball Player (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 19, 2013
I would wake up each day and arrive to the baseball field at 11am and spend the whole day there until our game was over at around 12pm. It was a great experience playing with major leaguers and other minor league athletes like myself. It is also very time consuming and teaches you about perseverance, dedication, and hard work.
getting the chance to live a dream

Game Day Operations/Greeter (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – August 19, 2013
Working at Fenway Park has been a privilege for the last seven seasons. There is no place I'd rather be on any given day than the ball park. I arrive two hours before the game and assist fans with any information they need. I also show them to their seats. I have learned that it is always about the customer and in this case the fan. I have enjoyed working with many great people and have made great relationships along the way. One of the hardest parts of the job is explaining some guidelines that Fenway Park has that sometimes leave the fan a little upset. The most enjoyable part of my job is having the honor of working in such a historical place. I would not change anything.
upkeep of a century old ballpark mixed with new construction over the last 10 years. Fast paced and demanding enviorment with quick turn around times for facility team members. Co- workers are very helpful and willing to assist different departments.
