Fun environment, taught human interaction essentials
Camp Assistant (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – August 14, 2014
I would show up to all of the Dallas Mavericks home games and pass out game programs. Many times I would be called to go and rebound for the players. During the game I would sit on the floor and help clean the court during stoppage of play.
During the Summer time I would help sell tickets to season ticket holders. This taught me the essentials of being – more... a good salesman at a young age. Also, during the summer time, I would help with the Dallas Mavericks camps for whatever was needed at the time. – less
On a typical non-game day of work I would answer customer emails, send proposals to prospects, and call on potential prospects. I have learned that selling tickets is very unique. The product is perishable, there is an emotional element to the sale, and value is a broad spectrum. My co-workers are family. The hardest part of the job is also the most – more... enjoyable part of the job; getting to the games, meeting clients, and being present on game night. – less

• Execute timely promotions throughout the game and picking the proper contestants, according to the sponsors requests. • I have learned how to interact with fans and make sure they are enjoying as much time as possible. • Management is very interactive and allows you freedom as long as the job is executed properly. • Co-workers are always in a good – more... mood and ready to have some fun. • The hardest part of the job is trying not to get lost in the actual game itself, so you can still execute all the promotions. • Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to work in the NBA atmosphere, being around the players, out of the court, and out with the fans. – less
fun atmosphere, and fun people. low pay, no recognition. didnt get a raise (even cost of living) in 4 years. management doesnt always know what is happening within each department. Very little planning ahead by each department which creates chaos and stress on everyone when they have to play catch-up
