    Pros

    Decent Hours, Friendly coworkers, Operating out of hotels you are given the perks of a Hotel worker. Some days are busy some are slow. Never fire anyone, they only shift around employees

    Cons

    Lack of creative environment, corporate structure, pay, Terrible scheduling - 2 Day advance schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff, Pay more to keep employees happy, Consider having clear roles in company

    Former Employee - PSAV Sales Manager - Hotel Divisions in Orlando, FL

    I worked at PSAV full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had a lot of flexibility with my supervisor. He made working there convenient and efficient. Projects can easily become fun and creative allowing the sales manager to be unique in what is proposed to the client.

    Cons

    Working with different managers who are too tight or have the wrong vision can easily make this an undesirable job. Workload is not evenly distributed throughout the year however it is not necessarily a con/ There is a clear busy and slow season so keep this in mind when calculating your commission checks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have confidence in your team. No complaints really. A lot of positive changes have been made compared to my first and last year.
