CASHIER /RETAIL (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 3, 2014
Great sports experience if you're looking for something to add to your resume. Great atmosphere to be at the ballpark especially if you love the San Francisco Giants. Great flexible schedule if you're still in school

Depends on multiple factors...
Key Holder (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – May 15, 2019
While this job is better than most, the Giants Dugout partnered with Fanatics is not really impressive, especially for trying to live in the bay area. Associates and Keyholders do not receive any benefits at all other than Sick Pay and while there is presumably lots of chances for advancement, there is not that feeling in the workplace due to it feels like no one beyond manager status seems willing to listen or improve the business.
Good Hours/shifts, ok pay, willing to work with availability
no benefits other than sick pay, hard to make a living, recommend a second job
Retail Sales Associate/Key Holder (Current Employee) – Daly City, CA 94015 – January 24, 2019
Working at the Giants Dugout was a very interesting experience. If you do not have a lot of experience talking to people on the fly, understanding what a retail workplace environment is like, or developing a thick skin, this would be a good place to start. You get a good amount of hands on training, as well as develop skills such as being a cashier, being a salesman, and handling clothing merchandise. The best part about the experience was the employees. The people I got to work with were very kind and helpful, as well as patient when it came to making mistakes. Furthermore, it was fun working for a team that is very important to the sports culture of the BAY AREA. The job isn't perfect, however. Like any retail job, you must learn how to handle customers (whether or not they are the nicest people), take care of merchandise, and move on from mistakes (such as inputting incorrect numbers, not remembering information on merchandise). There are also some employees/ higher ups who are more patient and understanding than others. Most importantly, developing a thick skin is important, because getting yelled at by a customer or making mistakes can be frustrating. In general, I would recommend this job because it was a great place to gain retail, customer service, and cashier experience. I was also able to get promoted with a pay raise within a year, so taking the initiative, stepping up as a leader, and adapting to difficult situations pay off nicely.
Employees were helpful and nice, pay was good, retail and customer service experience were great.
Retail Work can be frustrating, can be difficult to handle customers.
