FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Head to http://festival.caskdays.com/volunteer to fill out a volunteer form and select your session.

HOW LONG SHOULD I PREPARE TO WORK?

Sessions run roughly 4 hours but there will be set up and take down duties for all staff. Be prepared to work at least a 6-8 hour shift and know that this time is subject to change. If you have any restrictions, please contact our staff coordinator Cassandra at cassandra@caskdays.com.

IS THERE A UNIFORM?

We provide all staff with a Cask Days 2018 t-shirt but, although covered, the Evergreen Brickworks is an open-air facility meaning it can and does get chilly, especially in the evening. Dress appropriately and please wear comfortable footwear, as you’ll be standing the majority of the day (can’t stress this enough). Pro tips from the founders: lip chap, throat lozenges and layering.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Upon arrival you’ll report to the staff registration desk where you’ll sign in, receive your volunteer package, and be directed to your section and section manager.

WHAT DUTIES SHOULD I EXPECT TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR?

For the most part volunteers will be helping with pouring the beer for the guests or assisting with registration. However, an event of this magnitude requires many moving parts and we hope that anyone on staff understands that they may be asked at any time to help out with duties beyond their particular section if necessary. We’re all going to do what we can to make this a memorable experience for all the guests as well as the staff.

WILL THERE BE BREAKS?

We will ensure that there will be time allotted in non-peak hours to cool down and grab food or a drink. However, it is challenging to know when exactly there will be down time to take a break, as is the nature of the festival.

IF I’M SERVING BEER DO I NEED SMART SERVE?

Although recommended and an asset it is not a requirement by our Special Occasion Permit for the staff to be Smart Serve certified.

DO I GET TO TRY THE BEER?

Aside from our Cask Doctor, no staff will be permitted to consume alcohol while working at the event. Since most of the beer is unique to the event, even event organizers will not be able to try all the beer (even though we’d like to think we’re able to consume 400 beers in a day). Tasting notes and a general beer info package will be provided to all staff and section managers in order for you to be equipped with a good amount of knowledge so you are able to make recommendation.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN NO LONGER VOLUNTEER DESPITE SIGNING UP?

Life happens, we get that. Please don’t ghost us. If you can’t make it, no worries, but please let us know rather than not just showing up so we can prepare. Please reach out to cassandra@caskdays.com if you’re no longer able to make it to your session.

WHO DO I REPORT TO?

Leading up to the event for all intents and purposes our Staff Coordinator, Cassandra will be your main point of contact.

DO YOU SIGN OFF ON COMPLETED VOLUNTEER HOURS THAT WOULD GO TOWARDS THE COMPLETION OF MY POST-SECONDARY DIPLOMA OR DEGREE?

Yes, the Staff Coordinator will sign off on fulfilled volunteer hours.
