First time as Crew

Recommended Posts

Hello! Yesterday was my first time as Crew and I just wanted to say thank you to all the lovely, amazing people I met over the day! 

I was guest assistant to Joe Dinicol and had the best time! Thanks everyone

Thinking about volunteering myself ... was it an easy process?

How do they decide where you get allocated?  Do they take in to account experience and age as to where people get put or is it all a bit random?

E-Mail Crew@showmastersevents.com please.

They do take into account Special experience (like when you speak another language besides English or if you got technical experience). But I wouldn't expect to be put down as a Diamond Guest Assistant on my first day of crewing for SM. They got to know you first.

No, you will find out your Position on the day. If you are crewing several days you usually swap around.

Glad you had a great time! This was my third year crewing and I love it.  Making the decision to apply three years ago was one of the best decisions I've made, I have gotten so much out of it.  Met some amazing people, gotten to do some great jobs and learnt a great deal!

No it's easy. I had applied to volunteer. They said me yes. I read the crew handbook but at the end I turned it down because of a few reasons. I don't like working with money for example. I'm too new into conventions. And my English.... I get by and I m now able to travel alone and talk to people I want in English. But I thought that my English is not good enough. I don't always understand everything when someone is talking (anyway I ve that problem in French too when there is too much noise around me. It's impossible to concentrate. And I have health problems. It's was difficult as an attendee but when I observed I thought it's with the best decision to decline. 

They all did a great job anyway. Thank you to them all for this and they attitude. Always friendly and sometimes funny. 

So no, you can easily apply. I'm from Belgium and they agreed to take me into their crew.
