Bait and Switch tactics, 0 cohesion between Departments,
Custodial (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 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 then
  more... 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 hassle

Poor Management - No Perks
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 25, 2018
Unfortunately, this is a cut throat organization. They only look out for the high-level executives....and even they have to watch their backs.

Their promise of openness, respect and trust isn't true. That's just to make you THINK it's what they promote. Work here to gather some experience on your resume, but do not expect to stay.
Pros
Summer Fridays
Cons
Poor upper level management

Food Cashier and Prep (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 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.

Runner
Food Runner (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 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
Pros
In the long run there is good benefits
Cons
Not sustantial pay for living

Loved working there and I miss working there. I wish the location I had worked was year around though. The Madison Club, the Delta Club or the suite's were the place to be.
