Sports Official (Current Employee) – TX – February 2, 2015
A typical day at work is umpiring a baseball game. I enjoy umpiring baseball because I never know the out come of the game. I have the opportunity to work with many different partners at a wide variety of locations. This helps me with my communication and navigation skills. People react differently to a close play in the game keeping my attention to detail and subtle clues in check. I have learned to work with people from different backgrounds and educational levels. Managing my schedule and the pace of the game are routine. Managing people with difficult personalities remains challenging. I have a good working relationship with all my coworkers. The hardest part of the job has been empathizing with the loosing team. The most enjoyable part is that I have the best seat in the house while I participate in the game as an official.
