You probably want to be the president of a team someday. That's good; you're in the right spot. If you don't, you shouldn't waste your time reading the rest of this job description.
TWO OUT OF THREE DOESN’T WORK
We figure that you don't have the skill set to be a president right now. However, if president is
your target, you need to answer 'yes' to each one of these three questions:
- Do I have a strong work ethic?
- Do I have a powerful desire to learn?
- Will I get the in-depth training on my next job that would allow me to make a positive step to my career target?
If you say 'yes' to the first two questions, you're on the right track. However, to get a 'yes' on the third question, you are going to have to do some homework. Talk to teams about the real training that they give. Tossing you the Yellow Pages doesn't count as training. We feel that to become a president with teams, you need to first know what we know: It all starts with tickets. Tickets are the lifeblood of sports. Once you learn tickets—truly learn how to sell and market tickets—then it’s on to sponsorships. Learn both, and you’ve got the right ticket to run teams.
We start our people on our lifeblood—remember, that’s tickets. No Yellow Pages tossing for us. Our philosophy is train, train, train, and when we get tired of that, we train some more. Our goal is to accelerate your growth as fast as you will allow us to. You see, we want you to get better quicker for what you can contribute here in Oklahoma City.
WHAT TEAM WILL YOU BE SELLING FOR
The Oklahoma City Dodgers are the Triple-A Pacific Coast League Affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. We play in the beautiful Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark located in downtown Oklahoma City. It’s a great team in a fantastic city!
WHAT’S YOUR PATH?
We prefer to populate management positions with people that have learned our ticket marketing methods. If you come to work for the Dodgers in tickets and do well, you’ll have a chance to grow within our organization, much faster than you would anywhere else. Do well and you could be managing your own staff within a few years.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
Tickets, remember, it's tickets. You’d be a full-time salesperson making face-to-face sales calls to corporate executives. The position will be selling corporate ticket packages including season tickets, suites, ticket plans and group tickets. We don’t expect that you’ll know how to sell our different ticket packages, so we provide extensive training. We’ll teach you how to make an appointment with the decision maker and how to help select the best ticket package for that company.
Did you answer yes to the first two questions above? If you do, we can answer the third question for you. Yes, you will get unsurpassed training that will be giant steps in reaching your career goal. Answered yes to all three, you qualify. Now you have to take action; you have to apply.
HOW MUCH WILL YOU MAKE?
You’ll make a base salary plus commission. Total compensation will depend on sales volume. Includes full health benefits and a monthly car allowance. We would like for you to make at least 50% more in your second year with us and another 50% in your third year.
