Marketing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Flowery Branch, GA – August 7, 2014
I loved my time with the Falcons and wish that I was able to stay longer. I worked the retail department. That involved selling merchandise throughout training camp and supervising numerous retail locations during every home game. The hardest part of this job was learning how to deal with employees that I was supervising that were less than ideal employees. All things considered though, I truly loved this job and would accept another internship or job offer from them in a heartbeat.
excellent experience if you love and appreciate football.
Volunteer/Worker (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – May 26, 2016
Had the chance to work SuperBowl 50. A group of us got to walk around the San Fransisco 49ers museum and be hospitality greeters and helpers when a fan has a question. It was an incredible experience I will never forget. My most enjoyable part was being able to work behind the scene during the SuperBowl.
Productive and great experience shadowing a real NFL reporter
Job Shadow NFL Reporter (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – December 3, 2015
A typical day of shadowing is waking up early and follow the routine of an NFL reporter. I would go to the NFL studio in Culver City, CA. Check any updates on news in the NFL and make a daily planner for the day. I would go to the practice facility or stadium of the team I cover. I receive my credentials at the box office and walk in the media rooms. The easiest part of this shadowing experience was to watch and learn what the reporter does. The hardest part of this experience was being constantly on the move and always know what to do next. You always have to be doing something before, during, and after the games. What I learned is to always be prepared to ask questions, know what to report, and pronounce the player's names correctly.
Interviewing NFL players, free food and drinks, entering areas only for media
Graphic Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – November 10, 2015
Everyone is on a 7 month basis. So there isn't that much security for anyone. Which is a real bummer; because no one builds up too much camaraderie, except for the permanent employees. There are perks, football is everywhere. The people are good, for the most part.
Kansas City Chiefs NFL Marketing Internship (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MO – October 30, 2015
Fun place to work and timely mannered being able to interact with different people from Kansas city was wonderful. Meeting Pro NFL players during practice was fun. Being able to provide a safe environment for the kids and families during the camp was well organized.
The NFL was a great place to work. I was exposed to many aspects of the Professional Sports World
Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 15, 2015
Working at the NFL Office allowed me to grow and become aware of the many aspects of the Football world unknown to most. The people were helpful and embraced us as we learned and experienced the inner makings of such a large company. There is more than just playing football. The time spent in Communications and Marketing was more than a College Education. I learned so very much and I now have a greater appreciation for the business of Professional Sports.
A great place to work, people were helpful and organized.
Camera Operator (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – September 3, 2015
This is an exciting, fast paced, yet fun job. A typical day at work involves the inventory and testing of all the equipment to be used on and around the set. Other duties include the set up and breakdown of the equipment, as well as the power distribution from the source to the main set; and above all the safety of the talent and the public. Although the hours are long the company provides great meals including craft services for that pick me up throughout the day. The hardest part of the job is the unpredictability of the weather. You must always have a contingency plan in the event of bad weather, which is common in Florida. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you know that you have done your job well and the director says, "That's a wrap."
The exciting pace of the job, good food and friends
Productive fun environment working with an amazing team I call family now
