    Technical Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSAV (Atlanta, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process began with an online video interview. That took about 30 minutes and asked basic HR questions. A couple weeks later they scheduled an interview. Originally I was only supposed to meet with the Director of Labor for the branch, however about 5 minutes into the interview he said that he wants someone to meet me. He then introduced me to the Director of Project Management who asked me a lot of extremely technical questions. After that, I met with someone else who asked primarily customer service oriented questions. I then met with the Regional VP who asked more personal questions. In total, the interview took about 2 hours and I met with 4 different people.

    AV Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSAV (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    The company used a digital interview platform called Hire Vue which was the first time I'd ever heard about it. It was very interesting. From the employer you get a code for the interview and you access it either from a computer with a webcam or your mobile device. You can take the interview anywhere you want, it's best to pick somewhere you won't be distracted. It's also best to dress as if you're face to face. The best part about it is you can practice your questions before answering them.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you had to deal with a difficult customer.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSAV (Orlando, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Because of an introduction from a staff member the process moved along quite quickly at outset. However, after the initial telephone interview things slowed to a slow pace and I imagine that a number of candidates fall away because they find jobs before PSAV get back to them

    Event Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PSAV (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews. Many of them are for werding people out. The first round is from HR and the know buzz words and the best BS person would do great as they know nothing about audio visual. Lies are beneficial at this point add they have no idea if you are telling the truth.
    Once you pad the gate keepers is then the directors of hotels. A few are somewhat knowledgeable but most are just glorified sales people. Kind of used car salesmen for AV. Be careful what you say here because lies at this point can come back to hunt you.
    The difficult pay here is how much time will be wasted for a job that pays very close to minimum wage.
