    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PSAV (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Came to a hiring event that involved myself and three other candidates. We were all interviewed individually. I was asked questions by two different executives within the company in a very conversational manner. The experience was professional in the sense that I had to be very succinct in the answers that I gave but they made me feel comfortable that I could deliver answers with ease.

    Event Technology Specialist III Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PSAV.

    Interview

    The job was posted on the PSAV website. I applied for the position and received an email a couple days later stating that they wished to discuss my qualifications further. The recruiter and I arranged a first phone call, and we discussed my experience and resume. This was followed by another, more detailed online application for employment. After that was a face-to-face interview with the supervisor at the location. It was more of a "here's what we do at this venue" thing though. The day after I was sent information about references and a drug test. When that was completed I was given an offer letter which I had to sign and return. This noted my start date and hourly wage (it's a part-time position).

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were very simple and about my experience. Nothing like "what is customer service" or anything like that. It was very comfortable. The preliminary phone interview consisted of "go through your resume for me and tell me a little bit about that."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The start date. That is all that was necessary to negotiate for me.

    Interview

    PSAV hires in groups. They gather 50 or so people at one of their hotels and interview one by one. Two people are usually present to interview you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PSAV (Orlando, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    1. Company "Job Fair" which was basically just their way of doing 50+ interviews for 10 positions in 1 day. 2 interviewers, which made the process a little more relaxed. 2. Got called back for 2nd interview at location I'd be working. Basic Interview Questions with DET and DO. All about Customer Service, which is something that is not explicit in the job description. AV knowledge is necessary but if you don't want to be involved in Customer Service, look for something else.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You might have a little wiggle room, but its entry level so not much.
