    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PSAV (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was hired at a 1-on-1 job fair interview with the regional director. They don't pay a living wage to techs so I insisted that I wanted to rise through the ranks. That got their interest and they moved me on to drug and background testing. Trust me, they are so desperate for bodies that this is a formality and they won't look either one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PSAV (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Came to a hiring event that involved myself and three other candidates. We were all interviewed individually. I was asked questions by two different executives within the company in a very conversational manner. The experience was professional in the sense that I had to be very succinct in the answers that I gave but they made me feel comfortable that I could deliver answers with ease.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PSAV (San Francisco, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    In the hiring process they do a really good job to impress you and buy into their company. What they did was "invite" me to a five star hotel where they had a ballroom set-up with audio,lighting,projectors and snacks and beverages. They had about 25-40 other attendee's and do a short briefing about their company. They then take you to to their back interview space where they have two HR people interview you. My personal opinion is that they try to impress you so that they can hire you for CHEAP!

    PSAV Sales Manager - Hotel Divisions Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PSAV (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I had one telephone interview that was about 20 minutes, very casual. I was right out of college with no work experience but had a very good feeling about the interview. I prepared well, researched the company and its latest movements and made sure to mention these.
    I wrote a follow up email thanking the phone interviewer and he received me very positively, as I was told in a follow up interview.

    I then went to 2 in person interviews, each with a panel of 3 people. The first was about 45 minutes, the second only 25.
    Again, I prepped well, made sure to have information on the company and excellent answers to typically asked questions - I wasn't asked anything random. What are my strengths, weaknesses, who do I work well with, tell us about a time you had to overcome an issue, and how, etc...

    I left both interviews feeling confident, the interview was more conversational than interrogative.

    Negotiation

    I was told in advance the position paid between $35-$45k as it was a nationwide position being filled in several states. I was offered $45k and when I tried to negotiate was told this was the highest they were able to offer based on San Francisco's starting pay for the position.
