I need a few people for part time work. Good pay!

I'm looking for a few intelligent guys who can work in a fast paced environment.

The job: Installing temporary hoisting equipment for concerts, corporate events and similar. The hours vary, the locations vary but are normally centered around dallas, grapevine, and occasionally out as far as fort worth.

Requirements:
-Common Sense
-Punctuality (Early is on time)
-capable of working at height (from 30' to 300')
-ability to climb if necessary
-able to work in a changing environment and adapt quickly
-ability to work quickly and safely (be honest with yourself. If you're not a self starter, this won't be for you)
-ability to learn and remember how to tie knots, follow and remember basic instructions

Things that would be great:
-previous experience working with ropes(rock climbing, rappelling, etc.)
-working knowledge of ac electrical (to the component level only)
- experience driving boom and scissor lifts (normally under 50', but occasionally higher)
-previous experience in Theatre (running a fly-rail system)
-Working knowledge of theatrical rigging systems, chain motors, hardware and its proper installation.
-an understanding of the work load limits of various materials including but not limited to; truss, bolts, chain, wire rope, hooks, slings.

Basic job duties:
-hanging structural and audio components from various different roof structures, working in lifts, hanging banners of various sizes, evaluating how to hang something SAFELY, etc.

For what it's worth, I love this job. It's generally a very casual atmosphere with a lot of nice people. Normal attire is black jeans or cargo pants and a black polo shirt. If you're the kind of person who doesn't like to be micro-managed, and does things the right way every time, you'll probably enjoy it.

Pay ~18-20+ an hour depending on experience. You'll never be called for less than 4 hours of pay (including if you finish the job in less time (which happens often).

If you have any questions, shoot me a pm on here or an email @ [email protected]

It's definitely something that you can make a good living at, but it's not something that you'll get full time hours right off the bat. As you get better, more work will be available.

I can say that I have a blast most of the time. If you do it well, then you get a lot of freedom.
