Starting in 2017, we moved to a model where Crew are paid to be part of our team, and we will continue this in 2020. Yes, it’s true, you can get paid to work at MEGACON Orlando!
As always, we have lots of fun together at the show. You’ll be wearing our shirts, working with our Leads and Show Management, and sharing the fandom with more than 100,000 attendees.
We work with an Orlando-based staffing agency to manage the nitty gritty of applications, scheduling, and payroll. They will be your primary contact as a Crew member.
Please let our staffing agency 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, parking, accommodation, and food. You’ll receive a MEGACON Orlando 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.
As a paid Crew member, we will try to place you where you’ve got prior experience – be sure to tell the staffing agency 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.
Make this request directly to the staffing agency because they are responsible for scheduling.
Please connect with the staffing agency to discuss your specific situation. They may have a solution for you.
The Crew application forms will go live in January 2020.
