Usher (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 16, 2019
everyday is a new day . you would always see something new to different music and the different cultural genres based on events . i wasnt into sports until i started working there . Home for the NEW YORK KNICK AND RANGERS. different post everyday. great places for friends and families . i check tickets and nicely direct guest to there seats . most challenging days are concerts , dark and intoxicated guest . must patrol at all times . once everyone come in you have to stay at your post until the event is finished . which is pretty much just standing overlooking-the area making sure all guest are having a great time .
learn about new music trends and see unique performances
Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 11, 2019
While the benefits are great, the company is still trying to work on the culture that is in place. Unfortunately, it's a place where everyone has worked for years and years and they still use "old school" management practices. Not somewhere you'd want to work if you're interesting in learning good management techniques and advancing your career. If you're interested in the status quo and making some decent benefits, then this is your place.
Manager, Partner Promoters (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 2, 2019
Overall, MSG has a good culture. As a 24/7 Sports and Entertainment company, it is fast paced and always changing. The biggest issue is the constant change within the company. It is hard to be consistent throughout the years with so many changes within different departments.
Bait and Switch tactics, 0 cohesion between Departments,
Custodial (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 4, 2018
NOTE: Interviewer promised 17.00/hr ended up with 14.00/hr, Orientation drills teamwork ,and the employees practiced every man for himself keep this in mind!!!!!!!!!!
a typical day for a newcomer trainee starts with you clocking in twice one for attendance and one for starting work. You wait in the office until they can pair you up with someone willing to train you. Be prepared to be rejected as employees outright tell the managers and you no i'm not training that person(So much for teamwork) .Because no one wants to help the new guy and when you do finally get paired up with someone they don't want to communicate aspects of the job to you and when you ask questions answers are very brief and vague.
Employees from different departments occasionally enter in your work area and they will tell you what the reality of the cutthroat work culture is here.Everyone is scared and petrified for a job that is at-will employment.Employees are very secretive and conniving. My first day an employee tried to extort $5.00 out of me to use a locker that is 1 day use only. (very scummy people).
The problems only continue from there be prepared to make frequent trips to there HR department .You will work days and there timesheet system will have you as being in violation for working an unscheduled day even though your schedule says to work that day.And the management of your department will outright dismiss the problems your having with there clock in/clock out systems. Because they do not want acknowledge the issues going on. If its not there problem thenmore... it doesn't exist. There so much confusion going on you will end up with a migraine/frustrated repeatedly trying to rectify your issues. Lastly they over-hire here,Departments do not communicate so you will find yourself in the middle waiting for a manager to assign you a task for the day as everything is mostly spoken for. Not worth the hassleless
scummy employees and management, toxic environment
Security Guard (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 14, 2018
Madison Square Garden Company is a productive and fun workplace. I've been with this company since 2008, and every year I've received a raise every year. The salary is excellent for a part time job, and is competitive with other jobs.
Laborer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 27, 2018
Overall job was good, pay was good, hours was a problem. It was an event base job. No raises it was overnight 11-7 summer no heat or water, very disappointed at how the company of so much history and how they treated employees and the amount of days we would receive.
Food Cashier and Prep (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 24, 2018
MSG is a job that you have to intentionally get fired for. For the most part, one can keep the job for as long as they like. Staff is always short because people are always quitting. Managers are hypocrites and enforce rules when they want, but doesn't apply for themselves. Co-workers and other employees are friendly, but lot's of gossip.
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.
Food Runner (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 19, 2018
The hourly rate is 9ish, which not really good and it as a runner you will be working during events only must of what you make is by tip which must likely will earn 20 like dallars as the top tier but I would say is a good side job but to be your only job. Hmm not a good idea
FOOD SERVER/CASHIER (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – June 14, 2018
The days were really short, on average 5-6 hours. We didn't really have much work in the Summer time due to the knicks and rangers season being over. There wasn't really a hard part of the job, most customers were really happy to see there favorite team play. Management was awesome, they were easy to get along with and helped me learn a lot of extra management work.
2nd Assistant Treasurer (Current Employee) – Inglewood, CA – July 8, 2018
Excellent Company to work for. I have worked there for 5 years and never liked a job more. The work place was clean and the staff is friendly and efficient. The customers are generally very nice and easy to work with. My duties include selling tickets, dealing with will call, balancing all monies collected and interacting with management.
Stage Hand (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2018
I currently work in theaters related to this company. Long hours but a lot of pay. Job placement is usually reflected on what you know and who you know. Specializations such as rigger, electrician, welder, carpenter, etc. help you find a job in this business, but nothing is guaranteed. one month, you can make 5k and the next 2-3 months, you can make only 1k so be prepared to know how to manage money. If you're in a theater, be expected to work from 8am-midnight and beyond.
