Want to go to New York Comic Con?! Join our Team!

We are headed to New York Comic Con (Oct 5-8) and need heroic help! We are looking for a couple of dedicated fans to join us in our adventure in the Big Apple. We specifically need help managing our booth, handling logistical needs and to facilitate the very best fan experience as possible. We had a blast at SDCC and our shows are never a dull moment! Plus the fans are awesome. This is what we are looking for at the booth:

  • Answering questions about merchandise
  • Assist customers with sizing
  • Financial transactions
  • Execute strategic promotions
  • Delivering merchandise to VIP clients
  • Runner for various show errands


  • Available Thurs (Oct 5) to Sun (Oct 8)
  • Positive, fun and outgoing personality
  • Experience in customer service or retail
  • Prompt, organized, thoughtful and drama free
  • Knowledge of the WB/DC universe is preferred
  • Physical endurance- a lot of standing, bending and happy dancing ;)
  • Having a social media following is a huge bonus!


  • Must work the booth (or for HW) for 4 hours each day. Times are negotiable and you would be free for the rest of each day
  • Help with setup on Wednesday would be a bonus and teardown on Sunday night (about an hour after close)


  • This is a non-paying job however...
  • Granted a 4-Day pass to New York Comic Con!
  • Hero Within merch!
  • First step to future opportunities!
  • Transportation and housing is not included.

To Apply:

  • Our owner will be vetting candidates. E-mail Tony@HeroWithinStore.com
  • Please include brief paragraph about yourself, interests and experience
  • Provide 2 references phone numbers (non-family). There is no other role more important than interacting and serving our fans- this is why we need character and competency references 
  • Background checks will be done

This is one of our most important shows of the year so assembling the very best team as possible is critical. Joining our team that week will create a memorable experience that you will never forget- and you never know where it will lead. Join the league!
