Wrong.

We make substantially less than the other Aramark Employees. I started out as a Kitchen worker when I was 16 then when I was 18 I was able to work as a beer vendor. I saw my pay reduced, in what turned out to be like 200 less a paycheck.

Plus as a beer vendor you have like 16 different bosses (at least at Aramark). The company actually employs undercovers to buy a beverage and makes sure you are doing your job perfectly, while you worry about 30 different things.

My buddy that I worked with was a beer vendor and then he went on to be a bartender after we left PNC Bank Arts Center. He says being a beer vendor is so much harder than being a bartender, and has no idea why he gets more tips as a bartender than a beer vendor.

I'll tip them occasionally. But I also very rarely drink inside the arena anymore...

Was a time when it would have been weird not to see me post after 7 am. But I moved to a different job in the company, and now my desk is in a high traffic area instead of the corner of the cube farm. Oh well.

Good think, I'm hoping my commute home won't be terrible because most people stayed home.
Still just flurries here, but the bulk of the storm is arriving tonight, and that will be unpleasant.

Alright, I can't even find fault with this.

I've also discovered that the less I drink outside, the less I drink inside. Definitely related, haha.

I never buy beer at the arena, I always get loaded at the bar beforehand, and then cheer off the buzz during the game.

Yeah me and my friends just all recently turned 21 so we like to have a good time being a big shot of age person. Which is fine cause we can all thankfully hold our liquor and we never do anything stupid, which is what really matters I guess

Oh and another thing. last night going into the rock was the first time I have ever heard a jesus preacher outside of the arena...I've been to over 100 games over my life and that's the first time I've seen/heard one...ya think it would happen more often being named the "Devils".

ehh not really, it gets crowded on the weekends like every other bar. It is geared toward a 28-45 crowd though, but there are younger people that go in.

real men don't need to justify drinking a beer... especially to themselves.

A lot of the beer vendors at The Rock are college students who do not get paid at all except for tips.
They get a small cut of the overall sales for their sports team, Ex: Rutgers Newark Baseball.
Keep that in mind folks.

Those beers that fill up from the bottom are completely stupid and if you hit that little button you end up with beer all over you. Not a good concept.

I just get thirsty at a game. Might as well be an overpriced beer.

Oh man...I wish I had witnessed this! Can I be the only female allowed at your bachelor party to see you wasted?*
