Ripken Baseball was a great place for me to come to work knowing I would in someway be involved with the game I grew up loving. Sales job here is high turnover, with exceedingly high expectations and a very internal competitive structure. I came in in the middle of the sales cycle, putting me behind the 8ball before I even started. Have had numerous disputes over who sales is who with little respect or cooperation from management. Management wants to get a certain number of phone calls a day, then ship you out of the company for new young blood to do the same. Low salary pay, if you love baseball you will get a chance to be involved with the sport, but the office itself is very unorganized with little structure or little to no opportunities for advancement
I managed multiple assignments for the Ironbirds minor league baseball team. ( Including Advertisements, Creating Graphics, Web Graphics, and Product Design). My co-workers were amazing! They made me feel like apart of the team immediately. The hardest part about the job was working with unfamiliar programs, but I never back down from a challenge and I'm willing to learn anything to get the job done! The part i enjoyed the most was modeling their 2014 uniforms for advertisement including the Baltimore Orioles web page on the Baltimore Sun, their Billboard at the Stadium, and the 2014 pocket schedule that are given out at the stadium.
Productive and fun workplace with great co-workers
General Intern (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – December 3, 2011
Everyone at Ripken Baseball is highly motivated and full of energy. The job itself is very demanding and consumes the majority of your time. Employees have to keep composure in order to succeed. It was a great experience for me because I got to assist, then take my own initiative, and see what the entertainment industry is about.
