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 31st, 2019.

3&4DayPositions

In an effort to create opportunities for as many people as possible, we are offering positions rangings from two to four days. Most applicants will be accepted for a three day position (either Thursday / Friday / Saturday or Friday / Saturday / Sunday ). Some applicants may be accepted for two days. There will be some spots open for all four days. Judges interested in joining the Thursday 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'll be available until at least 8:00 PM (20:00).

Most operations are four day commitments which require availability from Thursday 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.

 

LEADS

Moving forward we will be staffing Leads exclusively through the CORE application and Lead applications will not be available on individual event postings. You can read more information here:

https://apps.magicjudges.org/forum/topic/46187/

 

SCOREKEEPERS

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

https://apps.magicjudges.org/forum/topic/46187/

 

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 and must be available Saturday, Some number of judges will be selected to work three or four days days. Judges interested in joining the Thursday 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 four days, although a few may be scheduled to work Friday thru Sunday only.

 

ALL STAFF

The typical shift length is 10-12 hours with a one hour lunch break and at least one thirty minute break.  Typical shift length for leads is 10-14 hours with a one hour lunch break and at least one thirty minute break. 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 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 Tuesday and Wednesday to assist with preparing the hall and other miscellaneous setup. Anyone selected to join us on any of these days will receive $150.00 plus two Booster Boxes or $270.00 for the day. Lunch will be provided.

 

This shift starts at 10:00 AM (10:00) on both days and is expected to take between eight (8) and ten (10) hours each day. Our goal is to be completed by 6:00 PM (18:00). 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). This shift has a 30 minute break. If selected, you will receive $300.00 plus two Booster Boxes or $420.00 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 all payment option will receive the payment plus product option. Please note that arranging sale of the product is an all or none decision and CFBE will not arrange partial sale of an individual staff member’s product.
