Cashier/Food Prep (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 6, 2018
A typical day at work consisted of waiting in a long line of other employees until they opened the gates to let everyone in, clock in, walk to my floor I was working for the day prep the food/cash register until they opened the gates for the customers/fans, worked until lunch break, eat and back to work, clean up turn in cash earnings and clock out. Management was awesome flexible and fun to work with. There was no hard part of this job. The most enjoyable part was meeting so many different people and being in the legendary Yankee stadium and also seeing some of the players up close.
Really cool job that i'd definitely recommend to a friend. I have met a lot of interesting people and have done things that make most people jealous. I'd recommend to a college student interested in learning about sports business like myself.
Baseball Analytics Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 18, 2017
My experience with the Yankees was back in 2013, so there have been personnel changes. Take my comments with that caveat in mind.
As a statistical intern, I found the environment very supportive of the research I was asked to perform and the people great fun to work with. The front office 'bullpen' can get a bit chaotic so focus is sometimes difficult, but when you aren't working on something inordinately complex, the banter is very engaging and fun and you learn a lot about sports management.
The pay is terrible and totally insufficient for New York City (especially with no benefits). Even the full time salaried employees complain about the lack of fair compensation, which, given that the team is worth well over two billion dollars, I find rather amusing. But that is not atypical of the sports world. Interns generally are expected not to be working to survive, but to gain experience (most of them had other means of support), so keep that in mind.
Intern (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – November 28, 2016
Eight hour work day, learning the behind the scenes of what goes on and how people buy and sell tickets for the New York Yankees. My co employees were great, very socialized atmosphere. Being able to go into different departments and meet different people was a great interaction and view of how others worked. I learned a lot about the inside world of selling and accommodating customers . The hardest part was probably the coping skills when customers got out of hand, you wanted to keep them calm and reasonable but things didnt always work out that way
Premium Service Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 17, 2016
I was a Premium Bar Supervisor and had the opportunity to learn how the VIP and Club lounges worked and operated on the day to day. I completed all the ordering for whichever bar I would oversee on that particular day, made sure the bars were fully stocked before gates opened and oversaw the cleaning of the bars at the end of the shift. The hardest part of this job was gaging the clientele that day, for example you are placing a beer and liquor order for the next game and the liquor/beer you ordered is not selling as fast as you thought. In return, you are now running low on beer/liquor you had little of to begin with and would have to make trips to and from the warehouse to make sure the customers got the drink that they wanted.
spread you out a little thin and were shot staffed a lot
Guest Relations Ambassador (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – March 30, 2016
Easy-going seasonal job where helping guests around the stadium is a priority. Must be on your feet all day. Outside job so you must dress appropriately, i.e. cold days must bundle up and hot days must stay in shade and bring bottles of water.
Guest Relations Ambassador (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 24, 2015
This job was a dream come true. I worked every Yankee game at Yankee Stadium in 2015, and I had the opportunity to help people. As a Guest Relations Ambassador, I was stationed at various posts around the stadium where I answered questions, gave tours, and resolved conflicts. I had a great relationship with both my co-workers and my superiors. My enthusiasm and warm personality allowed me to excel in this position. The New York Yankees is something that I am passionate about, so being able to give tours and help people find their way around the stadium was fun and not tedious. I also was in charge of the auxiliary scoreboard in the outfield on certain days.
Fun place to work, Helped a large amount of people, worked for Yankees
Customer Relations Manager/Security (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – November 8, 2015
For a second job it was great. I met many people from everywhere . People were friendly and my coworkers were just the best bunch. Standing for hours when the game went overtime was very tiring especially during the week. I felt burnt when having to be at another job the next morning. But I enjoyed working there it was worth it'
The New York Yankees probably the best job i will have.
Security officer (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – September 30, 2015

Professional organization with class individuals running it
