  • WEEKENDS: We expect all Event Services Team members to work at least 1 weekend shift (~6 hours) per month and occasionally 2 weekends shifts per month.
  • SHIFT TIMES: Most Event Services Team members can expect to work 2-4 regularly scheduled shifts per week. Each shift is 4-6 hours. Most shifts are available from 5pm - 12am every night of the week. We have a few shifts available from the hours of 6am - 5pm, but you can expect most (if not all) of the shifts you are assigned to be from 5pm - 12am.
  • AVAILABILITY: Prior to the interview, we will ask you to send a screenshot of your class schedule. We create a schedule for you based on the times you are not in class. We expect for applicants to be *available* to be scheduled during *most* times they are not in class; however, we will only schedule you the actual # of hours per week you would like to work. Prior to scheduling, we will confirm specific dates you'd like off from work.

Again, most (if not all) of the shifts you will get are from 5pm - 12am on weekdays plus 1-2 weekend shifts per
