One of the worst jobs I ever had
Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 8, 2017
I have been a huge baseball fan my entire life, so when I was hired by the Kansas City Royals it was a dream come true. However, once I started I realized the job was awful. First off is the pay. It is EMBARRASSING that they require a college degree and they pay you so low. Honestly, I made MORE money when I use to work at a fast food restaurant! Next is the ad for the job and when you first speak with management they say there is room for growth within the company, but there is not. Management just wants cheap labor and makes all inside sales reps think they have a shot at a full time position when they don't. None of my inside sales class was promoted at all. I am currently with another sports team and can't believe how bad working at the Royals was. I didn't even know it at the time how management was exploiting us. The positives are coworkers and being around the game. It is just from a business standpoint this job is terrible. Please get some better management in there! The craziest part was my inside sales class and I would talk all the time about how awful the job was and how broke and poor we were while we made the team thousands of dollars.
Cool factor in telling friends and family you work for a pro baseball team, your co employees are fine and some management
Almost everything, pay, some lying/egocentrical/incompetent management
