Approves of CEO

Pros

You run your own business without someone always looking over your shoulder. Freedom to make your own choices that you think is best.

Cons

There will be times when you work long hours. A lot of politics to consider as you have three groups of people you need to make happy. The hotel, the hotels end users, and your boss.

Advice to Management

PSAV has great employees, however some senior managers try to take away what the company put in-place for us to have and use.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get a paycheck and plenty of Overtime.

    Cons

    6 day weeks and Overtime are mandatory and you only get a 3 day notice for each weeks schedule. You must work in situations that are unorganized, under-staffed with exhausting workloads which result in long shifts sometimes with little time to eat, and 60 hour weeks that are mind numbing. A company culture that encourages long hours for little pay and expects you to be on call for schedule changes and call time changes daily. Plus most shifts require that you eat lunch on property and you must eat Disgusting cafeteria 2 day old slop with no way to store your own food for lunch. As a New Hire you will be "Hourly PT" at 11 - 14 / hour, but at least get Time-and-a-half for overtime. But then they will pressure you to go "Full Time Salary" with promise of advancement. But what you get is the same pay minus your Overtime Pay! Salary workers work longer hours and get only 50% of normal wage for overtime hours! So you end up working for 9 - 10 bucks an hour!! Plus the understaffed events leave too much room for error in safety and health of the workers. Promotion is luck of the draw. If you are at a location that loses workers above you frequently, and you do not complain about hours, you get a promotion by default.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees' time and effort. Pay, schedule and staff accordingly!
