    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straightforward process and a positive experience. Unlike many of these other reviews it didn't take too long (although I did take some proactive steps to speed up the process).

    After applying to the position, I didn't receive any contact until about 2 weeks later when a recruiter called me. One week later (after some pressing to get the interview scheduled) I received a call from a hiring manager for the region to set up the in-person interview.

    The interview was with two Directors at a very high-end hotel & conference center which was one of PSAV's clients. The questions were nothing out of the ordinary, there were one or two technical questions. Do your research of the company! Can't stress that enough.

    In the end we had a very nice discussion and it was a positive experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PSAV in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Upon applying to the position at PSAV, I was emailed to schedule a phone interview with the company's regional hiring specialist. once the scheduling was made, I received a call and was asked about my interests in the position, qualifications, dealing with customers, and pay range.

    Following the brief interview, I was requested to come in to an interview event at one of the hotels contracted by PSAV, where I met with the hotel's PSAV manager and went through a similar interview process. The second interview of the event was with PSAV's Vice President and was more formal, with more discussion going into the company's philosophy.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

    There is a total of 3 interviews. The first two went very well, and I was verbally told that I had the job. I didn't hear from anyone for two weeks, even after sending numerous emails asking what next steps should I take. When I finally heard back from them, I was contacted by two different employees, both asking me to be interviewed again and drug tested. At first I thought I was being asked to be interviewed four times, but it was actually a lack of communication between them. That's when I realized that there must not be much communication between divisions.

    Hotel A/V Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PSAV in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    In the hiring process they do a really good job to impress you and buy into their company. What they did was "invite" me to a five star hotel where they had a ballroom set-up with audio,lighting,projectors and snacks and beverages. They had about 25-40 other attendee's and do a short briefing about their company. They then take you to to their back interview space where they have two HR people interview you. My personal opinion is that they try to impress you so that they can hire you for CHEAP!

    Guy was cool yet serious and very composed. He handed me a 25' XLR cable and asked me to wrap it correctly and I obliged. Asked me what I wanted to do growing up and I said "Rockstar" He replied with "Welcome aboard! we are all failed rockstars." Probably the best interview I've ever had.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Every applicant should be applying online. Do your best in researching the company website and Linkedin. Make sure you include cover letter and resume that matches keywords. This helps your application go through. The HR recruiter for the region will reach out to schedule a phone interview. Be honest and ask questions after (questions that are relevant to your work-life). They will sometimes tell you at the end of the call if you made it to next steps. Follow-up with thank you email regardless. For second interview, it will be three people: Sales director, Regional Director, and HR person. You will get these names in advance so look them up and prepare to speak to their best interests. Try to dress for the job +1. Be at least 15 minutes early. Do your best. Ask questions. Thank them sincerely. Follow-up email to all. If you make it to the last and final round, repeat the same process and you will be fine. Negotiate your salary after your offer, within $5k or so. They should be happy you would.
