Stewarding (Former Employee) – Coventry – 31 July 2017
although the job was part time It was a very exciting job as you got to interact with different people of all different ages and backgrounds, quite a simple job but with big responsibility, good bosses who make the job as simple and stress free as possible and make you feel comfortable within the work place, you enter the staff room and get the stuff you need for the afternoon I.e. high vis jacket or coat (optional) and clicker, you then go into the meeting room when the boss gives you relevant information of the game day, how many fans they are expecting, also run you though the emergency drills every week so you are familiar with them in case of an emergency. Once being told the drills for the day you get to work, the most enjoyable part of the job was being around a football stadium and feeling a unique atmosphere while being at work, the most difficult part was dealing with certain members of the public, remembering the temperament of a minority of football fans sometimes caused a few problems but nothing that couldn't be dealt with instantly but overall the job was enjoyable with a good group of people and a happy environment.
