Sales Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 2, 2018
The only things really keeping people there were the teammates you worked alongside and the ability to be at the Garden during Knicks and Rangers games.
Communication between management and those they managed was abysmal. Even communication within management was terrible. They wasted money on trivial things and tried to incentivize employees with giftcards and other knick-knacks.
It was a bro-culture and often left the females in the office feeling left out.
Standard Cook/Prep Cook/Server (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 21, 2018
The morning would start with prepping the food for the guest before they attend a game or Concert. Serving the guest that attended that evening. I also prepared and cooked for the players, that consisted of the Knicks and Rangers.
Learned different food techniques. After each venue we were allowed to dine on some excellent food.
The co-workers did not want people to work at their stations.
Concessions Cashier (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 20, 2018
The management was inconsistent. They seemed inexperienced, and uninterested in the job which reflected off most workers there. I've witnessed customers curse out management many times over their nasty attitudes.
Cashier (Current Employee) – New York, NY 10001 – February 1, 2018
I love the experince I received in the job and continue to succeed in the workplace. Nothing but good workers and good people. Ive learned so much in the past two years being in that work place. Starting off with my ability to multi-task. Im at a faster pace of doing things with quality and quantity. Ive learn to built relationships with customers along the way of being apart of this job. I enjoy every part of what ive been able to bring to my job.The best most enjoyable part of my job is making sure my customers are safe and enjoying their experience at the garden. As long as they are happy with their experience while that is me taking care of their orders or enjoying the show. I hope to be of assistance in anway i can.
Club Seat Runner (Current Employee) – Concourse Village, NY – January 25, 2018
I love working in the sporting environment. To be working at Madison Square Garden is an honor. The only thing that I really hate is the wages and the fact that the people who take orders get 90% of the tips because the guests do not know that tips are not split. It's a cut-throat environment. That is the reason a lot of seat runners do not stay. You have runners who barely scrap $10 - $15. One night I made $4 in tips and I heard one order taker say "I only made $93 tonight". That is not fair. I can't see myself staying there next season. Other than that it's a great atmosphere and any sports fanatic will love and be thrilled to be there.

Merchandise Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 8, 2018
The merchandise management is horrible. They tend to lie a lot, so be careful. Be on time and stay to yourself because they also do talk a lot, so do not get too comfortable with your managers and supervisors.
