Host/Performer

The Basement: A Live Escape Room Experience - Las Vegas, NV

Part-time

PLEASE READ FULL POSTING BEFORE APPLYING. DO NOT APPLY WITHOUT KNOWING EVERYTHING WE ARE LOOKING FOR.

We are currently accepting applications for PART-TIME positions at The Basement: A Live Escape Room Experience. We are the #1 Ranked Escape Room in Las Vegas, and looking to add to our staff. Escape Rooms are places where you have to find clues and keys in the room, solve puzzles, and use teamwork to escape before time runs out.

Staff will serve in the following dual roles:

Room Performer - These are acting positions. We have two rooms with performers inside playing either a Maid/Butler or a Captive taken by a serial killer. You are inside the room with the customers playing a functional/performing role during the game. This isn’t just a sit in the corner and act/model position. This is an active role in the game that adds to the experience for the customers. Experience with improv and committing to a performance are key and what sets us apart from other rooms. These roles are also responsible for executing resets of game pieces and set decoration of the room in between shows, both timely and efficiently. You must be comfortable with direct interaction with audience members, have a good memory for details, and be capable of being fearless & uninhibited. All looks and types considered, but passion and commitment are a MUST.

Host - You are responsible for greeting and welcoming guests, giving a prepared speech with rules, starting the game by executing a series of tasks, and watching for issues during the game. You will also be exiting guests and providing positive feedback on how they did. Facility checks, light cleaning, organization of supplies, and sales are also required. Sales experience is a huge plus.

QUALIFICATIONS: First, we are looking for top notch people. If you want a clock in/clock out job where you are only here for a paycheck then this isn't your place. You will be directly interacting with customers and they see you as the “face” of the business. For that reason, we are looking for people who have a great energy about them, are outgoing, and are super personable. Please do not apply if you are shy or cannot command a room with your presence.Also, please do not apply if you are someone that gets easily upset or cannot keep their cool when dealing with difficult customers or situations.

Please review these bullet points:

Performance background and background in customer service.

Great personality, with a willingness to help out other staff members. Team player.

Superior attention to detail.

Great memory for processes and placement of game pieces.

Reliability, with a great track record for attendance and being on time.
