    I have been working at American Audio Visual Center for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly people who leave you alone and let you do your job

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation and very uncompetitive pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying wages that are competitive to the competition. Having a bright cheery atmosphere to work in with managers who tell you what you want to hear, doesn't necessarily put groceries on the table or gas in your tank. If you want to lure the best people away from the competition, you have got to open the wallet. And start showing more appreciation regularly for your current employees. Regional Managers should be taking the staffs from each hotel out at least once a month or once a quarter for pizza or happy hour... Kudo newsletters just don't cut it. If Regionals don't have time, make time! The employees (Directors, Sales and Techs) are the face of this company; not the VP's, and they need to give back to the team more often or the team will go elsewhere.

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at American Audio Visual Center in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a colleague whom I had worked with in the past. The interview process with AVCS began with a telephone conversation with the Northeast Regional recruiting specialist. We spoke twice about the opportunities available in New York. The recruiter was very knowledgeable of the NYC market, well informed of the company and its culture and most amicable and pleasant to speak with on the phone. I was asked to set up a personal interview with the Director of the property to who I would report to.

    He also was very knowledgeable about the company and its culture. The interview did go a little longer than I thought it should. He was not willing to specifically outline the commission program of the position, and indicated it would be outlined in more detail should a job offer be extended. I followed up with both him and the northeast regional recruiter within three days to decline the offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    The base salary discussed during the interview process was forty percent less than my current base. With the estimated commission (again nothing firm), I would have realized an almost thirty percent cut in my total compensation package.
