Jobs

Business Name: Flat 4 Photography & Photo Booth
Position Title: Photo Booth/InstaBOOTH Attendant
Responsibilities of Position: Pick up/drop off Photo Booth equipment (we provide vehicle/gas to and from events), set up/take-down of Photo Booth at events, man the Photo Booth during events. Essentially, we need someone who is available and willing to work Friday and Saturday evenings, is hard-working and reliable, can navigate a PC computer system, can meet the physical demands of setting up the Photo Booth and lifting approximately 50 pounds, is friendly and good at interacting with people, and is committed to working an “on call” type schedule. This job can certainly be done alone; however, if there are two friends or a couple interested in working it together, we are fine with that and it is much more fun that way!
Time Commitment: Events are typically on Fridays and Saturdays (evenings), although we have the occasional Sunday or weekday event. Events usually range from 2-4 hours long. Once you get the hang of setting up the Photo Booth, it usually takes no more than 35-40 minutes and take-down takes about half that time. Most of our events are in Spokane, but we do have occasional events in CDA, North Idaho, and other parts of the Inland Northwest. (If the event is more than 50 miles outside of Spokane, you will be compensated for your extra drive time.) Ultimately, it is hard to give an exact number of hours per week for this job because some months you might have one event while other months you might have four or five.
Compensation: $100-$200 per event, depending on how long the event is. ($10/hour while you’re training.)
