Default Dreams do come true

I've been offered a job by a local store, well sorta...

The store owner wants me to organize and utalize the gameing section of his store.

Stuff like setting up a 40k day, D&D, makeing/fixing a game board and building all new terrain, ect.

In the last 9 months a new store came in, they are kicking ass in regaurds to gameing , so this owner want to fight back and have me the general. But I need you help, how much is a general worth?

By general, do you mean the leader of the store you're employed in?


(maybe this should be in off topic?)

Im in a similar position. Im in a wargaming and Roleplaying society in cork. this year im equipments officer (though i prefer the title "master of the armoury"), which makes me the dude in charge of everything we have! I'm also chapter master, and am supposed to get the wargaming side of the society up and running again.

thing is, with us, our money will primarily go towards terrain and such which we sorely lack, and for that reason i'm shopping online, to see if we can get any cheap stuff.

yours is slightly different.

What i suggest is make an inventory of all the things you think you need. terrain (if needed) posters, etc and just run it by the boss, and see how much it costs. he'll say yes to this, no to that, and you'll get your orders.

regarding payment, just ask boss "so erm, how much do i earn for doing this, if you dont mind? If im doing this big job for you, i think i deserve something..."

How much work will it take you?

If it's like a 10 hour job, you might be better off telling him that you don't need pay, but get him to say you can have an employee discount as long as you keep the table in good shape etc. After you get it all set up initially, keeping set up shouldn't take more than an hour or two a week, and 25% (or more?) off anything you feel like buying is probably more than you'd get paid.

Ahh, been there done that, loved it.
Best job of my life.

Okay, pay rate should be normal for working in retail, you won't be actually manning the till, but you will be an assistant in the store. Just keep track of the time it takes for you to set up all the stuff, this should be payable at the normal rate.

Store credit is unlikely, but an employee discount is not out of the question. Asking the boss for a list of things you will need doesn't sound silly either, just bear in mind that you will not end up owning any of the stuff that you make.

And then you get paid to teach people how to play 40K.
