Artist

Staff Artists bring the world of Rescreatu to life with original graphics for items, pets, characters and more! Artists must do their best to match Rescreatu style in applications. Training will be given to accepted applicants to help them perfect the style. Staff Artists are expected to communicate and sometimes collaborate with the rest of the Art Team. Communication is done via instant messaging and forum settings. Artists are rewarded with Cash Points which can be used in the Credit Shop to purchase exclusive items and additional features. After a training period, artists become eligible for USD pay on a case-by-case basis.

Smaller Quota to meet.

More relaxed enviroment, relaxed deadlines, etc.

Users in this department will not be shown as staff on site.

No access to behind-the-scenes development.

Will only be paid in Cash Points, rather than potentially receiving USD.

To apply as a Commission Artist, please submit the same application as above, but include that you are wishing to be a Commission Artist rather than an full time Artist.



Support

Application for Support Staff

Becoming a member of the Rescreatu Support Staff team requires maturity, patience, friendliness, and the ability to deal with any situation without prejudice or favoritism. You will at times have to deal with difficult situations, such as having to issue a warning or ban a friend, and deal with difficult users on a regular basis. If you are not sure that you can be absolutely fair, please do not apply. Thorough knowledge of the site is also a requirement. You must have the knowledge in order to help the members of Rescreatu when needed.

Some of the duties of a Support member include answering tickets, monitoring activity logs, checking forums and blogs for inappropriate content, and being available to help the users while on the site. Please keep in mind that there will be times that your duties as a Support member will have to come before leisure time spent on the site, especially during seasonal egg hunts and events. 

As a Support member, you will also have the opportunity to help brainstorm new ideas and influence future content and features in the game. You will need to be very familiar with Rescreatu and comfortable enough to speak up and give your input in order to participate in this development.

As a Support member, you will be required to work a minimum of 10 hours per week. Time spent moderating the shoutbox does not count toward your quota. During the training phase, you will be required to work a minimum of 5 hours per week. During training, you must be logged into Skype or any IM client that can communicate with Skype. Communication is crucial to your learning. If you are not sure that you will be able to meet these requirements, please do not apply.

You will be compensated for the time and effort you put into the job of being a Support Staff member. Details of your payment method and amount should be kept confidential, just as many jobs require.
