Looking for Zombies, Gameshow Hosts, and Axeperts!
Room Escape Adventures is looking for folks from the worlds of acting, improvising, or event hosting to join our team and run our escape rooms, gameshow, and axe throwing range!
Located right across the street from Grant Park in the fabulous fine arts building, Room Escape Adventures has been a trailblazer in active entertainment in Chicago since 2013, opening Chicago's first escape room, and currently operating the only axe throwing range in the city classified as a small business.
Ideal candidates are personable, high energy, friendly people who love interacting with all kinds of guests. Unlike other escape rooms and axe throwing ranges, we always have our staff in the room, or working the range leading participants in person rather than from behind a screen or from a desk.
No previous experience required! We will teach you everything you need to know about hosting Gameshows, throwing axes, and running rooms! Applicants must be able to stand for 90 minutes at a time, and lift up to 10 lbs.
Since almost everyone on staff are working artists we understand schedule flexibility is a must, and we are able to accommodate staff's schedules so they can pursue their passions. However, in the short term we need folks who are available Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays. Long term, we can work around whatever comes up!
Pay starts at $13 an hour, with a possible raise after 90 days, plus tips. Tips average between $15-$30 per show, with some private corporate parties tipping upwards of $100 or more.
New hires should expect somewhere between 16-26 hours a week, pending their availability.
Diversity is very important to us, and candidates of all genders, ethnicities, religious backgrounds, ages (over 18), and identities to apply.
