Marketing Ambassador (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 1, 2017
A typical day at work is always great. I really enjoy going to work because I know that I serve a huge purpose there. I work to serve a purpose to make myself and everyone that I work with to gain knowledge about work. I also work and do what I can to make the company better in any ways. With my personality, I do my best to stay positive during tough times and I try to encourage coworkers to make it easier for them to stay positive during tough times.
Nice lunch breaks, great coworkers to communicate with
Corporate Development Intern (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 21, 2016
I started as an intern in October of 2015 and instantly fell in love with the atmosphere and culture of the office. Working with great people enhanced the experience and seeing behind the scenes at games was very interesting. The only thing I dislike about this job are some times the hours (games on weekends) are long and sporadic, as well as the promote from within idea. I don't think sales is my forte and it seems like a lot of the higher ups started in sales and worked their way up. Overall I think this would be a great company to work for especially since the 76ers are projected to only get better in the upcoming years.
Free lunch every once and a while, tickets to games, etc.
Sponsorship Intern (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 12, 2016
I would report to a sponsorship account manager and aid him/her in whatever was on his/her plate for the day whether that be attend lunch meetings with potential clients, or gather contact information of additional clients. It was extremely rewarding to help set up presentations and pitches to potential clients and see them follow through.
Activities Coordinator (Former Employee) – Valley Forge, PA – June 8, 2015
The Philadelphia 76ers camp is a wonderful place. The staff, interns, superiors, campers, and family create a family environment and bond that is unbreakable. All staff members are trained to be aware at all times and work as a team to complete daily tasks before deadlines.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 26, 2015
I loved working the basketball team. It was a fun work environment with even better people all at the same point in their lives. We all wanted the same thing and that's to get out foot in the door within the industry. I say the management was questionable because it wasn't run like a workplace, but more like a high school class. We could not communicate with any of the C-Level executives without checking with our direct manager, who then had to go through the department director, who then had to go through the VP of the department. The training was great, but I felt as though if you were not successful within a certain amount of time you pretty much fell by the wayside with the managers, while they latched on to the more successful associates.
Corporate Partnership Account Manager (Former Employee) – Navy Yard, Philadelphia, PA – April 2, 2014
I managed accounts and worked with deals that were in the $100,000. I fulfilled events and made sure that all contractual items were managed and maintained. I attend all basketball games and met with clients.
Philadelphia 76ers: National Basketball Association
Corporate Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 23, 2012
This was a very fun position working for a professional basketball team while the team enjoyed high power rankings and escalating local and national interest in this basketball team. I was the Corporate Sales Mgr for the team and managed between 15-20 Account Executuves. We were responsible for ticket sales, corporate club box and suite sales, as well as game packages. I enjoyed traveling to fun cities with the team and a huge opportunity to network with other recruiters. The only difficult portion was working late night hours.
