    Director of Event Technology Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

    I did an initial phone interview of which they were extremely late from the time that was setup. Interviewer was nice but unprofessional.

    I then interviewed in person with regional director on site. He was all over the place with his thoughts. Before we even got started he told me that I wasn't qualified for the position. He said that he would rather me be a sales manager. He then said I could work as a part time technician to get more hands on experience before circling back to the idea of a sales manager.

    Once he started talking salary we both realized that this just wasn't going to work out. The whole process was kinda odd and left me feeling they were not the most organized and we'll run company.

    Event Technology Specialist III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

    We had an initial phone interview for 30 minutes. After that, there were 3 different in-person interviews with the regional director and the property staff. The interviews were thorough and lengthy. One of the interviews was a group interview with multiple managers. There is a huge emphasis on professional appearance, so I wore a suit and tie.

    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.

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Made certain I possessed the desired experience and ability to learn and started me off light.   Answer Question

    Simple. I offered; they accepted. Best interview ever.
