FANGINEER FAQs

 

What is Tennessee Athletics Hospitality?
TAH is actually part of the Colonnade Group, a sports production/event management company based in Birmingham, AL. We are contracted by UT Athletics to manage the premium seating and hospitality areas at UT. 
 
Where are we located?
Our office is located in Thompson-Boling Arena in room 209.
 
How does the process work?
You will need to submit an application, found below. We will then hold interviews for selected applicants. We will need approximately 50 FANGINEERs for our football game day operations. As football season ends, we will select our top FANGINEERs to work basketball, and baseball.
 
When would I work?
TAH FANGINEERs are required to work all Tennessee home football games. While there are opportunities for additional hours, FANGINEERs are only required to work on game day. There are 5 home games this season, and you will be required to work all 8 games. Please review the following dates. Failure to show up for one game will result in the termination of your position.
  • August 31st, 2019 vs. Georgia State
  • September 7th, 2019 vs BYU
  • September 14th, 2019 vs Chattanooga
  • October 5th, 2019 vs Georgia
  • October 12th, 2019 vs Mississippi State
  • October 26th, 2019 vs South Carolina
  • November 2nd, 2019 vs UAB
  • November 30th, 2019 vs Vanderbilt
 
How many hours would I work on game day?
This varies from game to game, but you can generally plan to work 8 hours each game. FANGINEERs are required to arrive at the stadium no later than 3 to 3 ½ hours before kickoff time. Postgame duties will vary depending on your position.
 
How much would I be paid?
The pay rate is $8.00 an hour.
 
Would I get to watch the game?
No. Please understand that this position is not an opportunity to watch the game. FANGINEER responsibilities require a high level of service and attentiveness. A dedicated and focused staff is essential to the success of the suite, club level and hospitality programs. Furthermore, the guests notice and appreciate the hard work of the FANGINEERs and rewarding relationships can be built not just with peers, but also with the guests.
 
Would I get a break during the day?
Of course! Each FANGINEER gets a 30 minute break, which includes a meal.
 
So, what are the positions and duties?
As with any team, there are several positions to be filled. While all the positions are critical to the smooth operation of the program, they all have different responsibilities. We rotate through these during game day. Please read these descriptions carefully.
  • Welcome Team: Greet guest as they enter premium areas. Must be personable and friendly. You look at guest tickets and direct them to their floor or area.
  • Elevator Attendant: One of the first interactions guest will have upon entering Neyland Stadium so going the extra mile to display a welcoming attitude and thorough understanding of the premium areas is important for guest to get off to a great start.
  • Floats: Monitoring the appearance of all premium areas, walk around locations assistant other team members or directors as needed. Jump in wherever, reporting any issues to staff/
  • Hosting: Centrally located, directing guest to their suites, or restroom.
 
Do I get to pick what position I’d like to fill?
In order to place each person in a position that highlights his/her strengths, placement decisions are left up to TAH.
