This is a great opportunity for someone looking to make some money while having fun.

You will most likely be scheduled a month in advance, and you may work one event per month up to four or more depending on your availability and the number of events booked. During our slower seasons (January to April), one to three events per month are normal, while on our busier seasons (May to December), three to five events per month are common.
The most essential aspect of our company is customer service, and maintaining our reputation as a reliable and trustworthy vendor is top priority.

So How Does the Process Work?
We have an online google calendar that you will use to update your availability. Twice a month, we will send you a list of upcoming events available and we will assign the ones that suit you. These events are a combination of weddings, engagements, birthday parties, and business functions. When you are selected for an event, you will receive an email with all the information, start time, end time, client details and complete address.
The booths are to be picked up from our Fayetteville office and delivered to the event across Northwest Arkansas, Fort Smith, eastern Oklahoma, or River Valley region, so you must be comfortable with driving. They are easy to maneuver but do require some heavy lifting. Our packaged booth weights around 40 pounds and you’ll need to be able to lift it to waist height.
What Will My Event Day Responsibilities Be?
- Arrive with the booth and equipment one hour or more to the location before the event hire start time begins.
- Set up the booth and equipment (training will be provided).
- Serve as an exciting and helpful booth attendant throughout the event, providing excellent customer service.
- Pack down the booth and equipment at the end of the event and return to the office.
Sounds Great! How Will I Get Paid?
Pay starts at $15.50/hr with room for increase. You will be paid for 1.5 hour set up time + the booth hire period + 1 hour tear down/travel back to and unload at our office after the event. Pay will change to reflect out of town events as well. A short event would be a 2 hour local event and long event can run up to 4 hours.
What Do I Wear?
Dress pants and a dress top/business professional attire is generally fine. Comfortable dress shoes are definitely recommended. We’ll let you know if you need to dress up extra a black tie event.
