FAQs

How do I get paid? 

Echelon will issue a check mailed directly to the address you provided on your application for the confirmed times that you worked. IN ORDER TO BE PAID, you must CHECK-IN each day when you start, CHECK-OUT each day when your shift is completed, and RETURN YOUR EVENT STAFF SHIRT to the Echelon Protection & Surveillance Security Trailer after your final shift. Your check will arrive within 10 days after the event.

What should I do if I am late or cannot honor my shift?

If you are going to be late or cannot honor your shift commitment, call Echelon as soon as possible at 610-831-0277 and inform us of your status. If you are planning on parking in a lot, we suggest that you get to the event approximately one hour in advance of your shift start to allow yourself enough time to park, get to the venue, get your Event Staff shirt and check-in. Keep in mind, MIA is expecting about 60,000 people each day, so it is going to be very congested in that area.

Where do I report when I get there? 

Enter through the VENDOR ENTRANCE on 22nd Street. There will be an ECHELON Security Trailer and tent located inside. Come to the tent and a Supervisor will check you in and provide you with an Event Staff Shirt and Event Staff ID to complete your uniform. IMPORTANT: Please bring a picture ID with you (DRIVERS LICENSE OR STUDENT ID) because you will need ID to get your staff credentials. If you are working more than one day, you still need to check-in each day and will be responsible for bringing your credential ID with you.

Is there some place to store personal items, bag or backpack?

Yes, you can leave your bag in the designated security area.

What should we do about lunch?

It is recommended that you pack a few snacks to bring with you. There is a tent with tables and chairs in the security area where you can eat during your break. A box lunch will be provided if you are working more than a 9 hour shift. Water will be provided for all Event Staff. There will also be food vendors onsite, but lines will be long and your break time is limited.

How and when do we get breaks?

Your Supervisor will advise as to when you make take your two (2) fifteen (15) minute breaks. Never leave your assigned post without a Supervisor’s permission or you may not be paid.

Can we wear hats?

Hats will not be part of your MIA uniform. We recommend that you bring sun screen, as it may be quite warm all weekend.
