    I have been working at PSAV full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are generally good to work with. Lots of opportunities for advancement. Company is growing very fast and they need to fill positions. Trend is to fill from within, so if you start at the bottom and show that you have potential, you can move up quick.

    Cons

    Training has been a major concern, but it is getting much better in recent months. Pay seems a bit low when considering the industry. But the hours are good, so it probably evens out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the training initiatives and get the sales and operation's computer systems worked out.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at PSAV.

    Interview Details

    The interview was relaxed and professional. Great explanation of the company and position. They were just trying to get a feel for what type of personality you had it seemed like; they wanted to see if you would fit well with the other members of the company. Overall a simple process; although, the online application process leaves room for potential employees to be skipped over easily.

    Interview Questions
    • No ridiculous interview questions were asked. Mostly situational questioning.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
