Do You Want To Work The Super Bowl?

Posted on November 13, 2013 by

SUPER BOWL PREP: I recently started a conversation on the NLA’s Facebook page about companies that want to partner with other companies for Super Bowl XLVIII. I know that when I worked Super Bowls in the past you never have enough of certain types of vehicles on certain days. 

The goal is to pair out-of-territory operators with those who will have too much work. So if you are looking for specific types of vehicles you can post or if you want to bring vehicles you can do the same. The point is for you to tell exactly what you have or want. Include your name and your company name. Sell yourself, as you will soon see that lots of folks want to cash in on Super Bowl.

Some tips if you are thinking about coming to town to work Super Bowl:

  • Work with a reputable company, preferably one that you already have relationship with. 
  • Understand up front how you are going to get paid and when. I know that the companies I worked for all paid their affiliates before they left for home after the Super Bowl.
  • Find out what the plan is for snow with the company you are working with.
  • Once you sign up you are expected to show up —y ou can’t back out even if you get a better gig. Reputable companies will have you sign a contract. 
  • If you are coming from a distance, know well in advance where you are sleeping.  Unlike warm climates, you cannot sleep in your vehicle for Super Bowl — it will be too cold. Get your rooms early as they will be at a premium — even the no-tells will sell out.  
  • Know the logistics and the road closings of the areas you will be picking up. You will not get paid if you get lost.
  • Don’t just show up and knock on doors — you may get lucky doing that, but more than likely you will be wasting your time. 
  • Don’t be annoying to the company you are working with. They will be extremely busy — respect that and don’t become a nuisance.
