Contrary to what many believe, Fenway Park does not just host baseball games, but rather up to 500 or more unrelated events and tours throughout the year. Some of these events include Frozen Fenway, Fenway Concert Series, and Liverpool Football Club.

Staff needs have increased substantially over the past three to five years, according to the recruiters. Security staff are expected to perform metal detector screenings and bag checks, as well as identify intoxicated individuals in the facility. Employees are expected to be available for at least 65 of the 81 Red Sox home games, and 80% of all concerts at the stadium. To offset shorter game shifts, screeners are also offered first priority to work private functions for Fenway Park events. The hiring process is beginning now to prepare for a fast-approaching 2018 season.

Following the presentation, Gunning and Kozul fielded questions from the audience regarding the open security staff positions. Participants who asked a question were rewarded with Boston Red Sox merchandise.
