Dear 100 Hour Board,

How does working temporary jobs like Stadium of Fire/Freedom Festival work? Technically the temp workers don't get "hired", so it won't count as part of the 3 concurrent on-campus job limit, right? Thanks!!

Dear Overworked, 

The 3 concurrent job limit only applies to on-campus jobs (TAs, Secretaries, BYU dining, Grounds Crew, etc.) As far as I can tell, working the Freedom Festival means that you are employed by the city, not by BYU, therefore it wouldn't count toward the limit anyway. 

If a reader has more experience in this regard, drop a correction.

I only know about the Stadium of Fire security guard job since I did that 4 years ago. But that job is through BYU and you get to do 5ish hours of extra online training in case there's a shooter, etc.

I only had one job on campus and the only thing I had to make sure was that I wasn't going to go over hours on the weeks I had training (I had maybe two hours of on-site training the week of the event. Then a long day the day of the event.)

It was pretty sweet because they fed you dinner, got paid time and a half because it was a holiday, and once everyone was inside the stadium we could sometimes walk around the stadium and see what's going on. They encourage you to bring friends so it was fun hanging out with them too. Plus we were close to the fireworks and we got to watch them!
