Week 4: Union Square Events

As week four wraps up, I cannot to believe it has been a month already. Between commuting to Queens, New York everyday, I am enjoying the tiring and sleep-depriving work. As I work at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, hours are not ideal, working on a typical day from 2:00 PM – 10:30 PM. On a typical day, I shadow Bill Barnes, the GM of Sports and Entertainment for USE at Citi Field. This includes counting stock daily of supplies, as games are everyday and a typical day, the four restaurants, plus one beverage stand pulls in approximately $70,000 daily. The stock of everything, from food, food supplies, and the serving dishes must be replenished daily so Mr. Barnes, along with me, order new supplies daily, sending out the order by 5 PM, receiving it the next day early in the morning, usually at around 6 AM. One day this past week I was put on warehouse duties, where I arrived at the stadium bright and early, at 5:30 AM and worked an eight hour shift with the warehouse workers. This includes making sure order are correct, analyzing forecasted attendance and deciding how much stock each restaurant needs of each item.
