The Houston Astros is one of the top organizations in the MLB. The skills I gained daily is something I see myself benefiting from today. Along with the skills obtained, I also made many connections that will not only benefit myself, but the company I work for.
Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – September 12, 2018
Who doesn't love the idea of working for the HOUSTON ASTROS!
Great culture. From getting into the elevator and everyone welcoming you, to VP's picking up a piece of trash while walking out of the break room, to everyone in the meeting being encouraged to engage and speak their mind regardless of title, it is the best overall work environment!

This is a very fast-paced work environment, with no breaks; customer oriented. With benefits for the workers, i.e., medical, 401k, an increase in pay, and breaks this could be a great place to work; most people are looking for another job to help pay the rent.
Very fun.Constant growth, change, and upward momentum. Working for this company has helped develop my professional business skills as well as my personal life skills because of the constant challenge to raise the bar and strive for better systems/services.
I worked here during the World Series in 2017, we got to watch the game for free! It was quick-paced and tiring, but it was a fun experience. Overall it was a friendly environment and I never had a bad day there.
The schedule is extremely flexible as a guest services representative, you essentially get to choose which days out of the month you want to work and that's about it. The pay is also relatively pretty good for the work you're doing since you mostly just direct people to certain areas or show them where their seats are, and at times, you do have to fill out quick incident reports if a fan gets hurt by a foul ball. Management is very kind and understanding about personal situations.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 9, 2018
Worked here for nearly 6 years. Great opportunity to learn about the finer points of running a business. Highly recommended if you are willing to work your hardest and be a part of something bigger than yourself.
Being around baseball/Astros; learning about a large corporation
Sports Business Immersion Intern (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 16, 2017
A typical day in the intern program I had the opportunity to be involved in with the Astros would change by the week. The program allowed my fellow interns and I to spend valuable time with each department in the Astros organization. This aspect of the program helped me shape my desired career path and was a incredible learning opportunity for me in my first role in a corporate environment. The culture is a true team building environment and everyone is motivated in their respective roles. The hardest part of the job was getting adjusted with each department rotation the interns faced every week. I learned the objectives of each department of the business and developed a passion in my chosen career path.
The variability of job roles and challenges
Unfortunately the program only lasted 8 weeks and only one week was spent with each department
If you love baseball, you will love working for the Astros.Teamwork is a huge part of working there. Management is amazing all the way from the top to the bottom. Depending on position there may be a lot of standing, but overall fun place to work.
Enjoy my part time position with the Astros. It's been a great way to make some money while I have been attending graduate school in the area. Added perk, they won the World Series while I was there, so you can't beat that!
The management is concise and fantastic and the environment is beautiful if you're a fan of baseball or the Houston Astros team in general. The pay is okay for the job title and they're very flexible as well.
Everyday coming into work I felt really good about going, my co workers were great and my boss was easy to tell my concerns to. I got to watch the games and interact with fans, the only part that was tiresome was when the games would drag on and you had to stay walking around until the 6th inning.
Watch the game, met the players, lots of insinitives
