Official Becoming a Trainee 2: Train Harder

Discussion in 'Mineplex Guides' started by Islendingurinn, Feb 3, 2017.

  1. Well done Firestar! This is a very informative process and will benefit future players if they want to join the staff team!

  2. I am wondering how much detail should I do, and what should I enter in a such way in the application form?

  3. You should put as much detail in your application as possible. Doing this shows the recruitment team that you are a good candidate and someone who they want on the staff team. I like to use google docs when I apply. I copy and paste all of the questions onto a blank document and answer them there. This is nice because it automatically saves my work and I can come back later and add on whenever I want. GL on your app!

  4. This is the criticism a MOD gave me when my application was denied, so I would really take his advice.

  7. The amount of detail into this is actually a little insane. I'm dyslexic myself and I can't even imagine writing this. I would say this definitely seems like you would greatly benefit you even just as a person.

    with passion,

  8. Thank you for this guide! It is very useful and very informative. When I first applied around 7 years ago, I had no idea that there was more to the application process than just writing down some answers. I will definitely keep all the info in mind!

  10. A lot of words, but all read and double read, I realize that I have to wait, so I will be patient for the 2 week mark when I will reapply and hopefully get it.✔

  11. I just sent my application, but I am still confused about the 2 month training can someone please explain?

  12. Hey! I assume you mean the two month trial? Correct me if I’m wrong. When you apply and if you get accepted you will go through a two month trial as a Trainee and then you can either be promoted to Moderator or be demoted. You will get a mentor for those two months to help you during your trial. Hope this helped!

  13. Ok thanks, but I have a question, I have school which makes my available time only friday through sunday, what can I do then?
    Posted Nov 7, 2020
  14. This would be something you can discuss with your mentor if you get accepted.

  15. Hey!

    I actually asked WowCaleb this myself, and here's what he got.

    First he contacted some Staff Management members and they said:

    "Hey! I'd just tell them they should only apply if they think they have the time to do it. Part of joining the staff team is being able to manage their time effectively. If they think they can do that and not jeopardize their schooling then they should definitely go for it."

    "When I have mentees come onto the team, I kinda want them to effectively manage their time and from time to time I don't mind giving them a break if they're extra busy but telling someone we'll give them longer trials because they're worried they'll be too busy isn't really a precedent I don't think we should be setting"

    "The thing is if they can allocate an hour or 2 per day and some more time on weekends they'll be fine but if they can't manage that then it may not be a good idea"

    Additionally he said:

    "So to summarise that, just avoid applying if you don't think you'll be able to meet regular quotas

    So a) you don't feel bad about not meeting them consistently if you were to get on the team, and b) you aren't jeopardising your schooling bc I know that's something that even StM themselves would not encourage; they'd rather you not on the team and keeping up with school if you need to choose one or the other. It's a situation that lots of people are put in. One thing though, it's actually great that you're thinking all of this through. I definitely commend you for that as a lot of people just jump in headfirst without looking beyond the scope of a few months or so. Either way I know you'll make the right decision"

    Hope this helps :)

  19. Of course. Upon being promoted to Trainee, you will be assigned a mentor by HuskieALS based on similar timezone, interests, and other factors. Their job is to guide you through your two-month trial by showing you the ropes as to how staff members operate within the network. They'll be making sure that your standard of customer service is up to par, along with your knowledge and everything else that goes into being a quality member of the moderation team. You'll also work closely with an assistant (if you have one). During your trial, you'll encounter Question of the Days, Question of the Weeks, Trials test such as the MoT and EoT, and many more learning resources to assess your performance and help you improve.

    Once you've completed your Trainee trial, a determination will be made as to whether or not you should be promoted to Moderator. Essentially, a Trainee is a Moderator-in-training so it needs to be decided whether you passed this training. Moderators have different responsibilities, for example, you can now issue most punishments without gathering evidence and submitting it to your mentor or assistant for further reviewal as you would have when you were a Trainee. You may no longer encounter Questions of the Days, but you might have quizzes and Questions of the Week to fill out depending on the mentor.

    Plenty of this information is sourced from the Staff Management (StM) Introduction thread, so make sure to head over there if you'd like some more information. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but there's a lot of fun involved too what with mentee parties and other events you'll get to attend, not to mention the general bonding experience you'll get with other members of the team.
