Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 22, 2016
I love baseball. What a great idea it is to combine something you are passionate about and work around it. Though working in retail operations may not be an ideal place to work, it can be a springboard to something bigger.

Fun place to work Great co workers.
Ticket Seller (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 6, 2015
Nice Co-Workers, Nice Customers, Typical day at work is get ready for crunch time and keep going when it hits. I learned a lot from this job including life lessons and responsibility. The Box office manager was the nicest guy and genuinely cares about everyone there. Hardest part of the job was never having Air conditioner and the job fell on late spring / Summer so it was hot. Most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the people.

It was a great experience to work for a professional baseball team.
Intern- Grounds and Front Office (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 13, 2013
I was able to physically work on Minute Maid field. Some days consisted of cutting the grass, dragging the dirt, watering the grass, and preparing field for home games. I learned how to take care of grass the right way and how to keep the infield dirt level and presentable every gameday. Co-workers always knew how to keep the day fun and enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was having to extremely quick on taking down batting practice setup right before game starts because everything has to be on time.
Pros
I got to meet some famous athletes along with coaches such as Joe Torre.
Cons
Lots of baseball games to work that could run into family time, but you have to make it work

Demanding workplace.
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 24, 2012
A typical day would be to monitor the moves of the company, along with whatever paperwork of the day had to be prepared/distributed. I learned to always be prepared for the unexpected. You must be ready to work at all times. Management was not good at communication. The hardest part of the job was to stay focused in a tough office set-up. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the veterans of the company.

Poorest rep in baseball
Baseball operations (Current Employee) –  Houston TexasAugust 10, 2012
Do your homework. New ownership lacks values and morals. Research ownership - everything you read is true. Don't be fooled by glamour of pro baseball. There is nothing professional here. No pay, many hours and little to no respect for employees.
Pros
mlb health insurance
Cons
sinking ship. no leadership.

They're The Worst Team In Baseball For A Reason
Business (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 2, 2012
Stay away from the Astros unless this is your first job and you are OK with making below minimum wage. No job security, they fired numerous employees every week. You work overtime but don't get paid overtime for your extra work. Management talks a big talk and says all the right things but once you work for them it is a whole different story.
Pros
nothing
Cons
managers sleep with employees, no job security, no morals, work long hours for lower than minimum wage.

A respected, traditional franchise like the Houston Astros, undergoing such adjustments, creates a welcoming environment for new ideas.

With the opportunity to be one of the 30 interns selected for such a name is a great honor.
