What kind of a base salary can a front office staff member expect to make in the D-League? Specifically, a Ticket Sales Director or Operations Manager. If anyone knows a good range of salaries for multiple positions, that would be helpful as well. Thanks!
I knew a guy that you to work for a DLeague team as a Tickets Sales Exec. and he only made 28K and I don't think he had any benefits, but I think he did get some sort of commissions for hitting goals, etc. This was in 2005, so you may make more, but a career in sports is usually bad pay and bad hours.
With Minor League Sports it depends on the situation, with baseball it depends if you are a member of the parent team or if you are a member of the minor league team. With basketball it depends on the situation in general. Some teams have it where the majority of the front office work is done by the board which consist generally of the owners. Others hirer it all out, some go through an agency, others might just hirer one big guy and then the rest of the positions are part time and internships. it just really depends on the situation, the team, the market, the sport..... A friend of mine worked for the Iowa Cubs as an intern and he said other then a couple of front office guys and 1 grounds crew guy, everything else was temp and internship programs. So it would just depend.
