Production Assistant, Seasonal Freelancer (Former Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – December 10, 2013
I worked Monday through Friday and was expected to be at the office from 9 AM to 5 PM. However, because of the nature of the work, I was at the office longer than normal usually. I am not complaining though because it was the extra hours that I put in that really helped me learn how to be an effective employee. I learned how to be a storyteller, how to be a creative editor, and how to work as a team towards one productive goal. My co-workers were fantastic and I really enjoyed going to the building every day.
The hardest part of the job was prioritizing all the different tasks that needed to be completed. But, I am glad it was hard because that is how something is best learned. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was able to work on football every day.

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.

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.
