    Former Employee - VIP Corporate Host

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    -Fun side gig
    -Got to enjoy part of each concert
    -Work with a team of cool, likeminded individuals
    -Most VIP members were very easy to work with and appreciated the help

    Cons

    -Pay too low
    -Must drive back and forth to different venues around Atlanta with a stipend
    -Have to deal with rude, sometimes aggressive and stubborn concertgoers who were not supposed to be VIP

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend paying a higher rate to make it worth it, and/or offer a driving stipend for gas used.

    Pros

    Garnering experience working in a backstage environment is by all counts appealing. You get to meet really interesting individuals from myriad backgrounds as they traverse the country (and maybe world) on tour. Backstage catering is also a bonus.

    Cons

    The hours worked weren't worth the pay. The days are exceedingly long.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider bumping the hourly rate.

    The pay isnt that bad if you’re looking to fill the blank spot on your resume. Free music while working. Discount on meals. Long break.

    More training needed for every position of the company

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you have a full-time position. The pay is decent at best given the amount of work, time, and location. A great learning experience if you're young and enjoy a stressful, fast-paced, demanding environment, dogs, and free coffee.

    Cons

    Management gives little to no recognition for the amount of work and hours some people dedicate to their job. Human resources department does nothing to monitor or enhance your progress within the company. Most of the people who work here are young 20s-30s. Everyone is in it for themselves, and it can feel like there are quite a few cliques of people that help each other navigate around. Opportunities for growth are few, if any, and seemingly reserved for cool people who "fit in" the most.

    Advice to Management

    HR is there for a reason, put it to good use. Have management take the time to sit with employees and map out a path for growth and success. Communion and giving employees information is key, along with inclusion and opportunity. Repeating the same mantra of "we need to sell more tickets" only instills fear, competition, and worry about results and performance. Value your people, not just the bottom line.
