A typical day at work consists of making calls to individuals that have attended previous games to get feedback on their experiences at the game(s). It also consists of processing phone or face to face orders in the ticket office.
I have learned how to understand the needs of the customer and give them as much help to make their experience a great – more... one. I enjoy the management team and everything they do. My co-workers are a huge help with informing me of things I can do different and better the next time I encounter a problem or just in general.
The hardest part of the job is staying still at my desk from time to time, because I'm an athlete and so use to hands on activities I want to do and go more with my hands. The most enjoyable part about my job is helping individuals with their needs and making a great connection with clients as well. – less
