Location: Fond du Lac Dock Spiders
Job: Seasonal Work
Today, we got “taken out to the ball park”! We had the opportunity to meet with the team at the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders and explore some of their opportunities available.
The atmosphere at the Dock Spiders is fun and energetic. Their season runs May – August and provides opportunities for many to pick up a few extra dollars by performing tasks that assist in making the overall operation one that provides guests with a full experience.
We first met with the general manager…this guy is neat. He has an extensive background in baseball and fosters an environment where his team can thrive. We also met with some newer hires who were excited to be working at such an organization.
In our time “working” there, we called some partner organizations to invite them to an upcoming event. This exercise provided us with the opportunity to engage with baseball enthusiasts…and it was actually fun. People were kind to us (probably because we were talking about baseball!). Next, we worked in the team store. Here we restocked inventory and sold merchandise. The overall environment was casual, fun, and we felt like we were part of a team.
Good news….they’re hiring! The roles available are great for young adults, teachers, families, and retirees. With the short season/commitment, it is easy to enjoy working here.
Roles here require people to be enthusiastic with customers, smile, have the ability to engage in conversation, and liking baseball helps. 😊
