Friendly people who leave you alone and let you do your jobCons
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.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- 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.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- Tell me about a time that you participated in a team, what was your role? Answer Question
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.Declined OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
