      I have been working at PSAV full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Clothing reimbursement and limited opportunities for growth.

      Cons

      No personal time, no sleep schedule, little to no hours during summer and holiday season, everyone is replaceable, the average hourly rate is not enough to live on, they will work you to insanity and management will lie in order to keep you there.

      Advice to Management

      Invest more in your employees, give better raises and be honest.

      I have been working at PSAV full-time

      Pros

      PSAV really invests in training their technicians up to their standards. It’s also a huge company so there are a lot of opportunities for relocation.

      Cons

      The turnover rate for technicians is pretty high, and in my city that doesn’t seem to bother management. There are also a lot of managers that don’t perform well under pressure, which is particularly unhelpful in this industry. Technicians are underpaid for the amount of work they do at busy properties.

      Advice to Management

      Have regional VPs make sure visits and interact with the staff to get a firsthand look at how their managers are performing. Make it easier to apply to new opportunities, the current system requires managers to sign off which can hold back employees.
