    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

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

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PSAV in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Event Technology Specialist III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PSAV in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of two steps. The first step was to attend an invite only job fair hosted by PSAV in order to determine who they wanted to hire. During this process you were interviewed by two management level employees who asked you basic AV and hospitality questions. If you were chosen, you were called and told which hotel property had been designated as your home property. You then do a second interview with the director of that property to confirm that you will be a good fit at that location. If the location doesn't work, you may interview at a different property or be offered part time employment.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PSAV in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Great interview and hiring boss. We had a Texan connection and a few colleagues in common. Once in the door, they let you prove yourself. If you don't (as a freelancer), they simply don't call you again. I was grateful for the opportunity to have a good wage, meet some nice colleagues, and the option to leave and return for other jobs.

    Event Technology Specialist III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at PSAV in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first thing I would say is don't get discouraged at how long the process takes. I put in an application in November of 2010. I had forgotten about it until February when they contacted me to set up a phone interview.

    First was a phone interview: The phone interview seemed like more of screen for competence. They questions were very standard questions you would see if you googled "common interview questions". Tell me about a time when... tell me you're best attribute etc.

    I was then called for a face to face with the manager of property I'd be working at. It went well and was super easy... felt more like a tour of the property than an actual interview. Super basic questions regarding the position while we walked around. They hired internally but he recommended me for another open position to HR.

    I had another similar interview for this new position and again they hired internally, but told me there would be some movement in the company and that job might open up. Well it did and I got it... but not without a little persistence with HR. Several times I was told they would contact me by a certain day. That day would go by and I would contact them a few days later to get an update. They were helpful, you just have to be persistent.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PSAV in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview on a Friday. 20-30 minutes. HR was not quite sure of what position I might be best for. PT, FT, Freelance. Maybe the talk of all three was just to keep me interested. End of the phone interview I was invited to a mass hiring session.
    Met with two "Branch Managers" both liked me. Spent 15 minutes with each. One in his 40's, the other late 20's or early 30's. They appeared and sounded to be on the level about the amount of work I could find for myself with PSAV. You need to get cozy with the Event Coordinators/Planners to make sure you get more work. More work is more money. If you have the drive you can really shine.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical interview questions. Describe a time where you had to overcome a challenge. Basic stuff if you have interviewed 4-5 times over your life.   View Answer
