Busser (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – March 21, 2019
A typical day at Espn Zone would be cleaning off tables and setting them up for the next customer. Also setting up rooms for a banquet style event. i learned how to work with urgency and efficiency. The management was great and would lend a hand on the busier days to keep the flow of the restaurant going. The hardest part of the job would have to be the work load at times, and the most enjoyable part would have to be the bon created between employees after a rough shift.
Face it, ESPN is a worldwide brand and when you work there you are expected to be the best of the best in your job field and knowledgeable. I worked remotely but did log several days mostly in the New York bureau which I enjoyed doing. I was a contract employee and compensated well but there were no benefits or retirement plan. My editors and supervisors were great and the work was gratifying. At the end of the day, ESPN had internal issues on the dot.com side and many people were let go. That's business!

A typical day a work is its busy soon as I come in the door I have to jump right in and make sure the food is going out in a standard order and perfect to the customer expense I have learned to put the food out in a good timely manner and making sure it has a good quality of food prepared. The Management team is the best. the most hardest part of the job for me was learning all the salads I had to prepare once I learned all of the salads this was the most enjoyable part of the job preparing good quality food for the customer.
I would have still been working at ESPN if not for new manager who promoted and compensated his friends and family members instead of the hard workers, everyone under him is miserable and looking at job opportunities elsewhere
Great environment with lots of social events and some great people
Management only rewards friends and family members

Learn a lot as you go, and it is an amazing experience. I have worked there for about three years now, and this job has great overtime. The only downside is you have to wait about 2-4 weeks for your check to come in the mail.

....what a corporate culture should look like, enabling employees to learn and grow, chase opportunities and navigate through change successfully. This is one of the top reasons I decided to remain loyal to ESPN for so many years.

Work day was long frustrating hard work never got complemented for anything that we did was always persecuted for stuff we tried to do Breaks got cut short hour got drag longer and longer as they needed
Working for the ESPN affiliate station in Gainesville, Florida was an absolutely great place to begin a career in sports journalism. They were more than providing of opportunities for advancement, as well as willing to send students to cover sporting events!
