    I have been working at PSAV part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Room to grow within, great pay that increases with time, work quality, and experience. The hours are what you should expect in entertainment.

    Cons

    None that I know of! The work hours are as expected and overtime is always a plus. The schedule is very organized by our Labor Director.

    Advice to Management

    None so far!

    I have been working at PSAV full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a good with generous pto plans. Lots of room for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    The hours aren’t consistent enough, even full timers end up burning through pto to cover dead weeks.

    Also the insurance options aren’t good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Get better insurance plans and institute a hourly min/week for full timers.

    I have been working at PSAV full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady pay with commision incentives. No cold calling some hotels have great working environments.

    Cons

    Average pay is so far below the average Sales Manager pay in any city. Promotions are scarce and as a Sales Manager the driving force of the company you are easily replaced by someone willing to make pocket change for a 1 billion dollar company.
    The company continues to cut cost in areas that affect everyone beneath upper management. The new pay structure is not worth it even right out of college.

    Advice to Management

    Pay according to the cost of living and have a conscious that people cant live on minimum wage on the east or west coast.

    I worked at PSAV part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling for PT workers. Lots of work when 'in season.'

    Cons

    When not 'in season' you won't get any work, which makes sense since the hours would go to FT employees first.

    Advice to Management

    No advise to give. PT worker that got PT hours.


  7. "Good place to start!"

    I worked at PSAV full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I got to play xbox at work because it was so inactive and it's only $14 an hour. Including the dead months in the summer, I made around $21,000 in a year which is why I left. If you're at a bigger property, they'll give you more hours and a smaller one, but you get paid the same so...

    Cons

    Labor calls suck. You're very expendable.

    Pros

    Competitve environment. Room to grow.

    Cons

    Very seasonal job. Hours can be hard to come by during the slow season especially if you're new

    Advice to Management

    If you schedule your crew hours, pay them for all of it even if they finish early. You charge that much for labor, we should get paid for it.
