Exclusive Events Inc | St. Louis, MO, United States

Posted Date 7/23/2022

About Us:

Exclusive Events, Inc. is an Event Design and Production Company that fabricates set and furniture pieces for all social and corporate events. Exclusive Events, Inc. employs technicians familiar with theater lighting, carpenters, scenic artists, craft and fabric artisans, and event designers on a full-time basis. However, the company is willing to train motivated individuals that just want reliable and honest work.  Exclusive Events, Inc.'s fabrication shop and warehouse are located in the suburbs of St. Louis, Mo while traveling nationwide for installation and removal of our designed events are occasionally available.


Operations: This person will work within our Operations Department.  This department is responsible for maintaining the warehouse full of props, bars, stages, walls, set pieces, fabric inventory, lighting, sound, video equipment, and rental furniture.  The Operations Department works on location as well as in the studio to organize, prepare, and implement all events.


There is no typical day, as each day can bring a new event and a new approach.  However, there are consistent requirements during the week.

A typical Tuesday would involve unloading the trucks full of rental events from the weekend prior. Once unloaded, the items are checked for damage, cleaned, and returned to their proper warehouse location.  Wednesday through Friday involves receiving a pull list from the event designers, pulling the inventory and items needed for each upcoming event, and then loading the trucks in preparation for the load.

Saturday involves loading in all rental items (bars, furniture, stages, drape, etc.) and installing a lighting design. The venue can be a hotel ballroom, a banquet hall, an outdoor tent, or many other different on-site event locations.  If all goes well, the event load-in is completed by 3 pm, and there is a break for the day.  A return would be between 10:30 pm and midnight to unload and strike the event into the trucks. Sunday and Monday are the "weekend."

The year will present our high season and low season.  The low season is January to April, where hours are generally Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm. Evening shifts are required during event tear downs. The high season is May through December, where hours are usually Tuesday through Saturday from 8 am to 5-6 pm, and intense flexibility is needed for events that will happen mid-week or Sunday during this busy time of year.

We are merely looking for a teachable, motivated, hardworking, self-sufficient, team player, and pleasant individuals to join our team.  If you have technical theater skills, that would be a plus but not a deal-breaker. No college degree is required. Reliable, consistent transportation required.

*The ideal applicant will be willing to grow with the position, have a somewhat flexible schedule, be adaptable to change, and must have a positive, upbeat attitude. A great deal of time has been made to cultivate a positive and pleasant working team environment.  If an applicant has a negative outlook, does not desire to be a team player, cannot adapt to a change in plan, or generally is unmotivated, this position is not the right fit.
