Yeah my rep is gone too. I haven't had a rep since mid-summer. Kind of annoying. I feel like I've been dropped through the cracks.

I'm starting to think ticket reps are nothing more then an entry level job with the Bruins. I've had a revolving door of reps for the last 5 years. I don't think it has to do with how they do their job, more or less that he get promotions and they hire new college grads

The best is when they reply to your email and say how annoying you are in a message they actually meant to send to their boss. Not that I have any experience with that.

Yeah, I originally had Nick Camara. He wasn't the person who made the email faux pas though. He's been gone since the summer sometime and they haven't assigned someone else to me. He picked the perfect time to leave - right before the lockout started.

Nice guy but I had some issues with him.
The one I had before him was great. She got promoted somewhere else.

No way it's that much. True entry level jobs would be more like $20-25K in this market for a customer service/sales-type position.

$40k is average to slightly above average for an entry level professional position for someone with a bachelor's degree. You're not going to see many starting salaries below $35k for a college degree.

$20 - $25k is less than you get for a living stipend with various volunteer organizations.

I'm guessing they are at 40-50k. They definitely have some salary incentives built in. I know the year after I bought in I talked a friend into buying full ST's. I asked my rep if they receive any kind of commission for new ST accounts, at the same time telling him I made sure to refer two of my friends to him. He didn't give me a straight answer. He did however say he'd drop some stuff in the mail for my kids. I took that as a yes ...never did get anything in the mail for the kids.

My wife is a corporate recruiter in Boston. I'm not guessing.

If they were making that kind of money, they wouldn't be leaving every year or two. Not too many 22-24 year old kids are making that in Boston without some sort of an advanced degree (beyond a standard bachelors).

At 24, I made $40k at my first job out of college after dicking around for 2 years playing pro baseball. I had zero work experience and a Bachelor's in English from Suffolk University. I got a job in advertising.

I don't know anybody around my age who makes $20-$25k. No one. At my current employer entry level positions start at $47-$50k.

You're right. Everyone pays the same as your one company.

Lawyers starting salaries on average in the Boston area have dropped to $60K (Boston Business Journal, July 2012), yet Looch is guessing $40-$50K for kids straight out of college going into ticket sales? Not happening. If it was, there wouldn't be the every other year turnover. And nobody would go to law school.

In a closer comp, paralegals and Legal Assistants in Boston start at anywhere from $25-35K a year depending on the firm (less outside the city). No way are they seeing $40-50K to start.

I'll move on. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

Because I've only worked in one place, and only have access to market data for my "one company".

You're right. We'll move on.

Advertising is a completely different animal. And when was this? Salaries were better 5 years ago than today. The market has nosedived the last few years and salaries have fallen everywhere.
