Enforcer Application: PAX East 2020
This form is for NEW APPLICANTS who wish to be considered as staff for PAX East 2020: February 27 - March 1, 2020 in Boston, MA.

REQUIREMENTS: Enforcers must have internet access and commit to regularly reading our private Enforcer forums and Enforcer Twitter feed, as these are our primary methods of communication. They must also commit to working a minimum of one scheduled shift per day, each of the 4 days of the show (approx. 20-24 hours total). The shifts will be scheduled in advance, and Enforcers will work each shift in the same department, at the same approximate time each day.

Successful Enforcer applicants will receive a free pass to PAX East and are not required to have purchased a PAX ticket. Enforcers are paid staff, so you must be at least 18 years of age, eligible to work in the United States, and able to accept a W-2 from PAX.
