Event Information

CFB Events is excited to invite you to join an amazing community of people who will create some tremendously fun Magic: the Gathering experiences for guests of MagicFest Barcelona featuring the Grand Prix on July 26th - 28th, 2019. This application will allow you to apply to be a Judge or Operations Team Member for this event.

Please be sure to read the entire application carefully before applying. The application window will close at 11:59 PM (23:59) CST on Friday, May 3rd, 2019.

2&3DayPositions

In an effort to create opportunities for as many people as possible, we are offering two day positions (Friday/Saturday & Saturday/Sunday) in addition to three day positions. Applicants available for two day positions will be given higher priority than those only available for three day positions. Please select only those groups of days for which you are available to work.

 

Most operations positions are three day commitments which require availability from Friday morning at 8:00 AM (8:00) through Sunday evening at 8:00 PM (20:00). As you are answering the application questions, please select only those groups of days for which you are available to work.

Expectations

Please note that you may apply for multiple roles, and may have more than one role over the course of the weekend. If you are selected as a judge, you may be asked to take on operations tasks if needed.

SCOREKEEPERS

Scorekeepers are staffed exclusively through a seperate Scorekeeper application (similar to CORE) and applications are not be available on individual event posting. You can read more information here:

https://apps.magicjudges.org/events/11296/

 

JUDGES

If selected for a judging role, you may be asked to do any of the following:

 

If selected to judge, you will be expected to work a minimum of two days, either Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday. Some number of judges will be selected to work all three days.Judges interested in joining the Friday staff are required to be available at 1:00 PM (13:00) at the latest, and for those applying to a Sunday position, the expectation is that you're available until at least 8:00 PM (20:00).

 

Judges working towards their Day Two Team-Lead-In-Training Position (“TLTP”) will receive the regular Floor Judge compensation rate. The judge assigned to supervise and assess a candidate for the TLTP certification will be selected from CORE Leadership.

 

Judges who have received the TLTP certification and are chosen to Team Lead on the Main Event will receive an extra box of the most recent Standard set in addition to their regular compensation for each day they are a Team Lead on the Main Event.

 

OPERATIONS

If selected for the Operations Team, you may be asked to work in one or more of the following areas:

 

Most Operations Team Members will be expected to work all three days, although a few may be scheduled to work Saturday and Sunday only.

 

ALL STAFF

The typical shift length is 10-12 hours with a one hour lunch break and at least two fifteen minute breaks.  Typical shift length for leads is 10-14 hours with a one hour lunch break and at least two fifteen minute breaks. Please note that leads on the main event are expected to work all of the rounds on Day One and through the end of the Top 8 on Day Two. In order to give us flexibility in scheduling the event, all Operations Team members are expected to be available from 8:00 AM (8:00) Friday morning until at least 8:00 PM (20:00) on Sunday.

 

If you are selected for this event, you are responsible for monitoring the event forum for important news prior to and during the event.

ThursdaySetup

We will need help on Thursday to assist with preparing the hall and other miscellaneous setup. Anyone selected to join us on Thursday will receive €125 plus two Booster Boxes or €245 for the day. Lunch will be provided.

 

This shift starts at 10:00 AM (10:00) on Thursday and continues until the room is fully set up for the MagicFest. This typically takes between ten and twelve hours. Our goal is to be completed by 8:00 PM (20:00). However, the shift can go later if all of the setup tasks are not complete. If you select this as an option, please be prepared for physical tasks, and please make sure you are available for the full day.

Strike

We always appreciate having a hard working and fun-loving crew to tear down the hall and pack up the equipment with us on Sunday night. The Strike shift will start at 4:00 PM (16:00) on Sunday and will go until the MagicFest is completely packed up (generally Midnight, (00:00), occasionally later). If selected, you will receive €225 plus two Booster Boxes or €345 for the shift. Please note that being selected for Sunday Strike means you won't be selected to be a judge or operations staff on Sunday morning; no staff member is meant to be scheduled to work two shifts in one day.

 

Please be prepared for physical work, both in your attire and capabilities. Lifting and loading are a large part of the duties. Because of this, you are free to wear whatever attire allows you to be the most comfortable and safe while doing this work. Please be aware that you will also be late in attending the staff party, which starts at 9:00 PM (21:00), but we always save a little extra cheer of for the Strike Team to celebrate a job well done!

Compensation

Staff members will receive both monetary and product compensation per day worked, as shown in the table below. If requested, CFBE will arrange sale of a staff member’s product to a third party prior to the MagicFest; this request must be submitted along with the staff scheduling survey, seven (7) weeks before the event. The default compensation rate is the mix of payment and product and staff members who fail to fill out the survey or fail to indicate that they prefer the the all payment option will receive the payment plus product option. Please note that arrange sale of the product is an all or none decision and CFBE will not arrange partial sale of an individual staff member’s product.
