Stadium Ushers and Vendors


Hourly rates vary from job to job. Most ushers work at their job for such a short time that they seldom earn more than the starting wage. Median hourly wages for all ushers, lobby attendants, and ticket takers in May 2015 were $9.22 (or $19,180 annually), according to the U.S. Department of Labor. reported that salaries for ushers and ticket takers employed in October 2016 ranged from $13,103 to more than $28,007. The pay rate has increased slightly in the past few years due to the demand for this type of worker in most cities. Experienced ushers in metropolitan areas earn the highest wages. For vendors, the amount earned is usually on a commission basis and the competition can be fierce to get the most desired concessions in the park (hot dogs, ice cream, and so on).
