Rovers recruiting new applicants/minions for Fanime 2010
« on: July 17, 2009, 12:55:05 AM »

If you don't know what Rovers is, we are the department in which we hear all and see all that goes on at Fanime. Problems arise? We see it, we hear it, we report it, and (if need be) we handle it.

We do a lot of walking, we're crazy fun to hang out with, we love to help you out, and make sure the con is an enjoyable place for everyone.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please let me know at Steve @ Fanime.com


Please fill out this application and send it to me, or print it, fill it out, and hand it in to me at a meeting.


Rovers 2010 Application
Please send to Steve @ Fanime.com

Quick Questions:

Why do you want to be a member of the Fanime Rovers team?

Rovers is staffed 24 hours a day during the con, when will you be available to work?
   (We want everyone to enjoy the con so if there are any specific events or panels you would like to attend please note them here including time and day.)

Essay Questions:
Please answer these questions fully to the best of your ability.
1.What is a Rover at Fanime?

2.In stressful situations, how do you normally handle yourself?

3.In this scenario, describe how you would handle the situation. Be as detailed as possible.
An individual has been accused of stealing from the Dealer’s room. How would you approach or deal with the situation?


Below is a basic list of rules all Rovers staff members must follow at all times during the con.


#1 Enjoy the Con! An unhappy staffer is useless to us.

#2 Follow all the rules. It's simple we can't enforce the rules when we are breaking the rules.

#3 No alcohol or drug consumption while on shift or on con property! We have a zero tolerance policy, if you are of age and want to drink off shift DO NOT return to work or enter the con while under the influence.

#4 No inappropriate interaction between fellow staff members or attendees. This is a no brainer just don't say do or anything that would be deemed unacceptable outside Fanime and you should be fine.

#5 Do not abuse the system or your status as staff member. Being on staff is a privilege not a right do not abuse it.

Note: Any violation may lead to removal of your staff badge and/or expulsion from the con.

I talked to Deonchan about being a Rover. I'd like to make sure I get squared away on this.

So yeah...I wanna be assimilated.

What's the pros and cons of being a Rover? Are taking anyone in? And what are the qualifications of being a Rover? What if you don't get well with other Rovers?

Yeah, I have too many questions   :P

Qualifications for being a rover

1) You must be 18+
2) You must have a customer service demeanor. Friendly, personable, and responsible.

Pros of being a Rover
1) Free Rover T-shirt
2) Free entry into con via staff badge.
3) Custom exclusive Rovers Badge.
4) You get to work (help with line control) and then get into any event (except VIP events, those are selective)

Cons of being a Rover
1) You have to work 24 hours the entire con (Total hours, which is true of all staff)
2) You will be walking a lot.
3) You may have to deal with a lot of people who complain...this is the nature of customer service.
4) You "can't" have crazy cosplays while on duty.
5) You answer to a tyrannical boss who enjoys making your life difficult (Just kidding, we're all pretty laid back)

Duties of being a Rover (You won't get assigned to do all of them, but all rovers are trained in all of these)
1) Line control
2) General Concourse roving
3) Escort duties
4) Peace bonding
5) Weapon policy enforcement
6) General Convention Policy Enforcement
7) Code of Conduct Enforcement

It sounds like a lot, but honestly, make a few training meetings, get to know the people, be qualified. You won't have issues. If you do, well, we're pretty good at taking care of them.

We could count work during Pre-Reg Pickup apart of the 24-hours, can't we?
Even so, I am definitely considering this. It would be cool to meet fellow staff and help out the Con.
And to destroy JTchinoy and his Anti-Pocky Rebellion =P
Yes, excellent.

The 2009 con was my first fanime and man, was it awesome. I would love to be able to help out next year. I'm not exactly sure what the variety of staff positions is like, but I could quite possibly be interested in joining the rovers. Any more info would be great ^_^

Meetings are once or twice a month, usually a pre-determined location...although if none is currently scheduled, i'll let you all know by email.

I usually will give you 2 weeks notice. Minimum.

All in all...being a rover is fairly easy. Even easier if you have customer service background. You need to know how to be polite, even when someone is being rude to you. So, in that regard patience is a must.

It also helps if you have the ability to approach someone or a group of someones and be able to tell them in a nice manner that they cannot be doing something, when that something is deemed against con policy.

What if you don't get along well with other Rovers?

There is always the option to work a shift on the opposite spectrum of the person you have issues with. Other than that, you can simply avoid speaking with them if it's really a big issue. Causing a scene with someone would most likely see you removed from Rovers.

Yes, excellent.

I believe Thursday evening counts towards hours, yes. However, the majority of the staff usually ends up working all of the days (usually we need everybody we can get our hands on, especially during the larger event times.) We also usually have a gathering on Monday for dinner, once the Con begins closing down.


I would like to join rovers. When is the next training meeting going on?

There probably will not be an official training meeting for quite a while, since Fanime 2010 is still a ways off. I could be wrong though. It's all up to Mike.


The 2009 con was my first fanime and man, was it awesome. I would love to be able to help out next year. I'm not exactly sure what the variety of staff positions is like, but I could quite possibly be interested in joining the rovers. Any more info would be great ^_^

There are many different groups in which you can volunteer for.
Your best bet though is probably something in the Operations category. This includes ConOps, Tech, Logistics, Rovers, and Volunteers. I don't really know the ins and outs of each of those groups, but I'm sure more information will surface in these forums as it gets closer to Fanime time.


Maybe if theyre interested in joining.... should we mention the beach party this weekend? :P

or is it Rovers [who worked this year only?] exclusive? :P

I'm sure you *could* invite them, but people would be like, "Hey, I don't remember you. You weren't a rover! Wtf?" and then sand would be thrown in their eyes. Once the confusion would be cleared up we would then realize they were possible new Rovers prospects. In which case we would then proceed with the ritual "jumping" it takes in order to join our elite gang.

BAH. Those aren't cons. Should be in the 'Duties' section. My past jobs were like that. (Retail, food service, Kirby sales, tattoo studio)

Bring it.

Okay, cool! If we need a Rover to help clean the theatre or bathrooms after the Hentai rooms close, you will certainly be the first choice.  :D

Someone is definitely starting to recruit early. Aiming for 100+ Rovers for 2010? =P

Runewitt should definitely join. Maybe make 'em go and watch the dances very carefully.

Rovers was pretty fun, didn't get a lot of the drama. Thankfully most con goers have their common sense about them. At least the ones I run into.
Remember to sleep at least some. Especially you Steve.

I'm kinda sad that I missed the BBQ now.
