Warehouse Crew, Cable and Swing Departments


About the positions

This is a full-time, permanent position from Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm with opportunity for overtime during busy periods. This is generally a warehouse shipping/receiving position which does not involve working on-set and is strictly within the warehouse.

The Cable Department takes care of everything cable-related and consists of 12 crew members. Orders are created and staged, shipped out, returned and counted, and finally the gear is processed and put back into inventory. Cable is the most physically demanding of all the departments, with some cables weighing up to 85lbs each. In this crew, you will constantly be lifting and counting gear throughout the day in a well-rounded team environment. If you like to be on the move, enjoy physical exercise while working with others and don’t mind working in and outdoors, this department would be a good fit.

The Swing Department acquires and applies basic knowledge of each major department (Lighting, Cable, Grip) and is the largest department of 15 crew members. Once trained in basic procedures, you will bounce around to various tasks depending on workload needs. You should expect to work both inside and outside of the warehouse in all seasons and in varying weather conditions. This position would be a good fit if you enjoy working with a wide variety of people, have good attention to detail and a desire to learn about multiple departments. You will report to the Assistant Floor Manager and be managed by the Department Head based on assignment.
