    ASDP Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at PSAV (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to this program by a friend who had gone through it the year before, so when I was recruited, it was in December of 2016 but the position wouldn't be filled until June of 2017. My first recruiter called me on a regular to inform me on the progress of the process and when my interview would be. One thing that I like, is that the recruiters prep you for interviews by giving you the questions ahead of time and letting you know what the panel is looking for.

    I had one face-to-face interview with a Director of Sales and that day I had an impromptu interview with the RSVP. He then told me I'd be moving forward with the program and would interview again April. This week I have my first of those two panel interviews (the second and final interview will be in two weeks) then I will start an 8-week training in June.

    Rigging Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at PSAV in February 2017.

    Interview

    Convoluted, and haphazard at best.
    I was ushered into the process through a referral.
    I have applied with PSAV in the past and receive both online and in person interviews.
    This time I was ushered in through a referral and went through the process.

    After completion I received an email stating that the offer was rescinded due to failure to complete their screenings.

    Their recruiting officer then replied to my grievances stating that he had sent me the wrong email - he apologized and sent an email stating that the offer had been rescinded due to my background.

    Unorganized is how I would describe the interview process for this company. Their recruiters need more training to say the least.
    I lost out on work because of this. Not happy. Do not contact me again PSAV!!

    Audio Visual Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PSAV (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2016.

    Interview

    This phone interview focused on job responsibilities and technical knowledge. The questions were easy to answer, if you understand signal flow. Even though the job description states that it is a full time job, PSAV does not promise consistent hours. When asked if I had any questions, I inquired about consistency of work hours, and I was informed on the busy and slow times of the year. I was told that "full-time" employees might only get 5-10 hours of work a week in slow times and 45-60 in busy times. That would be fine if it were a salaried position. It's not. No one can live off of 5-10 hours per week of work on an hourly wage during extended slow business seasons. Not many people who like spending time with family enjoy working 60 hour work weeks during the holiday season. That's a deal breaker there. Overall, the interviewer was informative and transparent, which helped me to learn that this wasn't the job for me. If you are educated and have a breadth of audio visual technical know-how combined with a desire to work consistent hours that results in predictable grown-up paychecks, this might not be the job for you. This job is not for people with Master's Degrees. If you have a GED and are marginally competent in dire need of any work now, go for this job.

    AV Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Traverse City, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PSAV (Traverse City, MI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I came in and knew right away that I would be hired. My boss gave me more of an idea of the job itself and the property I am located at. He was up front about the down time and the fact that not all weeks would be 40 hours, though he did tell me I would have many months with 60-70 hours (which has only happened twice so far, and only up to 50 hours).

    Interview Questions

    • My phone interview consisted of asking my background - education, experience in AV, etc. The basic things.   1 Answer
