Terrible management, poor work culture and environment
INTERN (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 2, 2019
You never know what you're going to get working for the Redskins. Management never thanks you for your work or acknowledge you exist. Work overtime with no overtime payment or any type of compensation worthy of your time. No chance to go up in your career; once you join that's your position and salary forever.
I enjoyed working for the Washington Redskins as a Ticket Taker. I also loved greeting the fans. The best part of the job for me was meeting all of the fans. The hardest part was working in the cold weather and standing on my feet for hours.
Working with the Washington Redskins is a lot of fun but depending on the position, you might not get paid much. Also, you work majority of family holidays - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. It's a fun job and atmosphere on game days but you sacrifice a lot.
busy Every game. The hardest part of the job is moving Celebrities thru out the Stadium without Fan Fair. The most enjoyable is helping the Owners Guest and meeting All Celebrities, Players as well as the President of the United States.

The work environment at the Redskins is difficult. It can be rewarding but is very cut-throat and not conducive to family life. The organization knows people will accept a pay cut to work there and they leverage that. Many that work there do not last.

You will learn a lot about the business of football and about the business of business. You may not like a lot of that, but there it is. There's always excitement around a professional football team, so that's a plus. This one, however, spends a lot of time in crisis mode and that creates pressures and anxieties and great demands on one's times.

I am a sports person myself and I got a chance to be around work that I would love to do myself in football. This was a great experience to see and work behind the scenes of a football stadium. I would love to do more work in the arena if it was possible.
Working for the Washington Redskins was a blast. I really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, and to make it even better, I was a fan of the team. It was definitely a job that I enjoyed waking up to every weekend.
Redskins Charitable Foundation Staff (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – October 27, 2017
Coming to work didn't feel like work. We have a great team and management is very understanding. I absolutely developed my interpersonal skills working with the Redskins. I loved my coworkers. Only issue I had was the pay.
Calling fifty to one hundred people a day that usually did not want to talk to you was not always fun, however every now and then you would talk to a real football fan. Management does not adjust their expectations for sales which can lead to it becoming impossible to hit sales goals. If the football team or front office was doing something the fans did not like the management would still expect high sales.
