I have been working at PSAV full-time (Less than a year)
Went into the accelerated sales development program (ASDP) right out of college which is a 8 week fast track to the sales manager role. I had quite a lot of sales internships and experience prior to applying, so make sure you have a decent resume if you apply to the program. The 8 week training program was an invaluable experience that I recommend to anyone wanting to get into sales and the Event Technology industry. The skills and knowledge I have acquired from the program will help me in any career path I end up in. Everyone I work with is extremely helpful, kind, and enjoys their job with PSAV. I know it varies by location, but for myself and most of the people in my ASDP group that has been the general experience. Very generous base pay and commission plan for college graduates, just need to be willing to put in the work and hours! Many career advancement opportunities and an awesome company culture. It is the AV industry which is entertainment, so most of the time the people you work with are more chill and relaxed, but like to get business done and appreciate hard work when it is needed.
-Slow seasons in the hotel sales services can be long and boring days... but hey you are still getting paid!
-Will work over the 40 hours a week they say you do, but sometimes less.
-HR and the hotel locations could be in better touch with each other.
Advice to Management
Keep doing your thing!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at PSAV (Houston, TX) in April 2017.
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.
