What do you currently do for the IronPigs?
I'm currently a suite attendant, where I help set up suites and work with folks who fill the suites each game. I help fulfill requests and make sure the suites are running smoothly!

The satisfaction people get while they are here and when they leave. People are thrilled when they are taking a game in from the suites - they have a fun time!
