Want to join the Pin Masters? An open invitation

As Hard Rock Cafe is opening new locations, we are always looking to recruit collectors with the time and passion to help make sure the HRC pin database is accurate and up to date. We are so thankful for the folks who can dedicate their energy to making the HRC database the best resource out there for pin collectors worldwide. And if you’re looking to get involved, we’d love to have you on board! 

The best way to get started is to join the Pin Master Apprentice program. This training program will teach you the ins and outs of the hobbyDB database and will prepare you to be a Pin Master. As a PMA, you will have a PM mentor who will help you and answer your questions. You will need a Facebook account to be a PMA because that is how Pin Master team communication occurs. The PMA program is off to a solid start. In the program’s first four years, 43 PMAs have signed up, and 18 of them have graduated to Pin Master.
