Media Relations Assistant/Translator (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – January 11, 2018
A typical day at work is busy from the moment you walk in through the door in the morning. We always say we're hosting an event each day there is a home game, thus, there are a lot of moving parts that come together to provide an experience for fans, players and media. My responsibility is to the media as Spanish Language Translator/Media Relations Assistant. I, along with my coworkers and managers, work hard to be sensitive to the needs of local and national media as well as those of the baseball players who play for the Red Sox. There are good days and bad days but overall the work is rewarding and fun. The opportunities for learning about the business of baseball/professional sports and making relationships with local and national reporters/producers, baseball operations personnel and the players is what make the job worthwhile for me.
Intern (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – January 2, 2018
Working with the Boston Red Sox was one of the greatest experiences I am fortunate to have. As an intern I gained lots of perspective into the industry, and learned skills which will translate to any work environment.
Sponsor Services Assistant (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 30, 2017
The Red Sox has a very fast-paced work environment during the season and every day is different. Things obviously slow down a bit in the offseason but it is still busy. The company is attempting to better the culture within the organization but it seems it can vary depending on the department.
Head Athletic Trainer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 14, 2017
Results were the only option and I did not feel like I was supported in my role. It was a difficult job with long hours and little encouragement other than pay. I know any would think of as a plus but when you are constantly checking your phone when at a party for your daughter it may be too much.
Player (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 3, 2017
Not much work/life balance, pay is rough, no vacation time during the season, etc. It is par for the course in professional sports. The company relative to the industry is phenomenal but that shows you how backward the thinking is in the sport.
Fan Clubs Representative (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – June 2, 2017
My first season with the Boston Red Sox was phenomenal. In the Fan Club, I worked directly with fans and reported back to the marketing offices. In such a fast paced and exciting environment, it has been easy to enjoy going in to work. My colleagues and the spirit of Fenway are the best parts of the job. I'm excited for the 2017 season!
Facilities team member (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 10, 2016
My job was low risk, low reward without a lot of responsibility and not a lot of work. The only thing I could say I learned is how daily operations work at Fenway Park. The management I experienced was poor and unfair. It was a great culture and fun and my co-workers made it a fun place to work. The hardest part was dealing with management. The most enjoyable part was dealing with everyone else.
Free meals, great culture, hardworking employees
low wage, low hours, poor management, not challenging
Security/Even Staff (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – July 4, 2016
Working for Fenway and the Boston Red Sox is more than just a job, it's a family and an adventure. Even on the most irritating and frustrating shifts, I can look back and say, I made it. I am proud to be a member of the Boston Red Sox team.
Experience, family, management, being a part of history, the pay isn't bad for a part time job either, monthly awards, meet a lot of new people, 50% discount in the team store, 2 tickets per home stand at decent pricing
no health benefits, hours are dependent on home games and events
