Productive workplace with very involved co-workers
Marketing/Event Staff (Current Employee) – West Hartford, CT – July 10, 2015
A typical day at work is when it's game day; whether it's Soccer, Basketball, Lacrosse, Baseball, etc. Interacting with guests, friends, and families of the athletes. A major part of this marketing job is ticketing; use of computer, handling money, making sure all the numbers are right by the end of the day. Huge responsibility.
I learned that in the end, it's all about sportsmanship, communicating, honesty, and working/using resources with your peers because it leads to a greater outcome not only for yourself, but for the university.
As an undergraduate, management could use more of communication, and organization.
My co-workers and I all get along, although through stressful times some may hit heads but then again, we're all not perfect. We're strong as a whole.
The hardest part of the job has to be getting to communicate with one another during a game day when something is wrong, or there's a misunderstanding with a customer.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to learn something new, or learning from a new person I meet at the Sports Center everyday, as well as interacting with other people!
Flexible hours, free food after half-time
Not much communication and organization during game day
