You understand that we do not guarantee you will be trained on tasks that interest you as our primary objective is to manufacture products to donate to charity.
You agree to perform assigned duties even though these may not be your first, second or heaven forbid, even your third choice. We will try to place you in roles you enjoy and feel challenged in because we will get the best of you but this is not always possible. Please try to understand that we are unhappy too if we can't please you.
You agree that any work materials, forms or other intellectual property used in the administration and operations of this event is not to be removed from the facility, nor to be photographed, reproduced, or described in any way nor by any means.
You understand that this event is not an opportunity for a free stealthy consultation. This factory is owned by Apparel Technical Services, which as a for profit business, is happy to arrange consultation with you on a fee paid basis.
You agree to limit your interest and inspection to the events at hand. This is a real factory; we set our customer's work and materials aside but it is not always possible to put everything under wraps and away from prying eyes. In part, this includes machines, equipment, tools, materials, patterns, samples, books and other work materials that have no bearing on the event. If in doubt, ask if you can take a closer look at something.
You agree to complete the reading assignments and any other requested preparation ahead of time. The reading assignment will be sent after April 26, 2019. You will take a short quiz on the first day day because we need to measure your retention, ability to follow instructions (failure to do so is very dangerous in a factory) and to demonstrate your willingness to invest in this process as much as we will invest in you. The quiz is not difficult so if it is apparent that one has not prepared ahead of time, this will affect your work assignment as you'll need remedial training before you can be assigned tasks.
You agree to read and follow the dress code (https://abqfi.org/about/dress-code-policies-and-supply-list/). If the dictates of your faith conflict with our dress code, call to inform us. Otherwise, please do not put us in the embarrassing position of not allowing you in the factory. Please do not leave it up to us to ask you to remove personal accessories (like facial piercings or dangling earrings) or request that you take a shower (we have one on site). All of this unpleasantness can be avoided by reading the dress code and following its instructions.----------------------------------------------If you win a slot in the registration lottery, you'll be sent an invoice for the event fees of which a non-refundable $50 deposit must be paid by 5 PM (MST) on April 26, 2019 to guarantee your slot.
