WORKING AT FAN EXPO BOSTON
Thanks for your interest in being part of the FAN EXPO Boston Crew.
Advisor Communications staff will be managing all the nitty gritty of payroll forms and HR documents.
Please let Advisor Communications staff know this when you complete your information form. Naturally the more shifts you do, the more on-the-job knowledge you gain, so we love it when you can work for more than one day. People who can work more than one day will be given priority.
As a paid Crew member, you are responsible for your own transportation, accommodation, and food during the show. You’ll receive a FAN EXPO Boston show shirt – please let us know your size when you apply. If your shift ends early the day you are scheduled, then you can attend the con for the remainder of that day.
Can I work in a specific area at the show?
As a paid Crew member, we will try to place you where you’ve got prior experience – be sure to tell Advisor Communications staff if you’ve worked in a certain area before. However, in this paid role we may need to move Crew members around to different areas of the show based on where it’s busy or slower. We require flexibility in this regard. No one on Crew “owns” a certain position or placement at the show. Requesting to be placed with a specific Celebrity Guest tends to make our fanboy/fangirl radar go off and can ultimately influence decisions on where you are scheduled.
If your financial situation doesn’t allow you to participate in paid employment, then please connect with Advisor Communications staff to discuss your specific situation.
Advisor Communications staff will work with you to complete various forms ahead of time to ensure your check-in on show days are quick and easy. If you have not been a Crew member for FAN EXPO Boston in the past, Advisor Communications may request a phone interview with you.
