    Job Perks for Friends

    What kind of job perks does everyone have who are available to friends and family? Maybe there are some good ones out there and we could exchange information.

    Re: Job Perks for Friends

    I get free pitchers of beer at a bar downtown 'cuz they like me. That's about all I got. Sorry I'm not willing to trade.

    Edit: Oops... I lied. we get sponsors to throw us extra tix to events/games and such in advertising deals and partnerships. Last summer we had a butt load of Adventureland passes. A lot of those went to waste. If those come up again I'll be sure to come on here and give 'em away.

    I get paid so I don't have to borrow money from family or friends.

    Re: Job Perks for Friends

    Free tickets to our skybox suite for a Browns game about once a season. This year I'll be grabbing the Bears-Browns game and hauling my wife and 4 of our friends there. Free booze and food paid for by my company during the game.
    Free Indians tickets a couple times a year as well, they're good seats but not the red carpet treatment of the Browns games.

    One of my friends flies us on a private jet to an Iowa game almost every year. Last year was the first time he didn't b/c they stunk so bad and he didn't want to waste his hours allotment. Sure you have to watch Iowa, but the games we usually go to are when they play a ranked team in October so they usually lose. The private jet is the **** though.

    Re: Job Perks for Friends

    i'm a wine rep, so my bastard friends and family always clean out my cellar.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Job Perks for Friends

    I get paid enough every other week that I do not have to live in my parents basement. Is that a perk?

    for me the perks come around College World Series. I usually get invited to several parties with free beer and food before CWS games.
