Working at Wrigley field is a dream come true. Everyone is there to help and have fun. I learned to be more patient and understanding with the fans that arrive at the ball park. Great atmosphere.

Under paid/ poor management
Parking and Transportation Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 16, 2015
We were underpaid. There was very poor management mostly did not listen to any of our suggestions. They mostly care about themselves. Sure it was cool seeing Wrigley Field everyday but they hired a new girl that did not read the handbook. Also, they did not turn on their walkies up loud and that is a safety hazard since i was in Parking and Transportation Ambassador. Irving Park parking lot poor lot loud trains and next to cemetery. Wish could have seen the live games inside Wrigley Field. Do not work there at night cause it is located in a very tough neighborhood cause of night games.
Pros
Beautiful ballpark
Cons
Poor Management, Under paid and unorganized

Guest Service Ambassador (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 20, 2015
The management team often ignored my scheduling requests and would schedule me on days that I was unavailable to work.
My co workers loved there jobs and were passionate, but the compensation was not enough to live off of.

Marketing (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 10, 2015
They sure did like hiring hot girls. HR is a mess, they only want slaves and they turn them over each year. New ownership encourages a faceless, corporate environment.
Pros
Beautiful workplace.
Cons
Had to watch some billionaire frat boys slowly destroy an American landmark.
