FELD entertainment is dedicated to providing excellent customes service, for designated events, all over the country.
Issue Clerk (Current Employee), Palmetto, FLAugust 3, 2015
Pros: Being able to travel the majority of the continental US.
Cons: If it's a bad week then there is very little money to be made.
I have worked with the FELD Consumer Product (FCP) division of FELD Entertainment since 2010 as both an independent contractor and a member of management for the Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus where my duties included following the instructions of those facilitating the loading and unloading of equipment from semi trucks and train wagons. I lived and worked with a crew of roughly 30 to 50 individuals with the stated goal of providing excellent customer service and enhancing the customers experience at the Circus. Preparation for the show involved a wide array of assignments carried out individually and as part of small teams in order to meet a hard deadline. Coordinating with co-workers, staff members and management was paramount to the success of an enriching experience for consumers.

A fun and fast pace company to work for.
Purchasing Agent (Former Employee), Sarasota, FLJune 8, 2015
I really enjoyed the fast working pace. I worked with the set designers on every show that they were producing. It was a joy to work with the people there because they are the most creative and talented people that I will probably ever know.

long hours, no benefits, poor pay
Independent Contractor (Current Employee), Palmetto, FLMay 15, 2015
Pros: none
Cons: everything
I work five to six days a week, 60-80 hours a week. This would be awesome if i was payed hourly, but i'm not. It would be annoying if i was salary, but a I'm not. my pay check is 100% commission based, meaning i only get payed for a max of 10 hours a week. The other 50-70 hours during the week I'm slaving away. Lift this, move that, unload this, re-load that, make cotton candy, collect cotton candy, ect. All of this for free, so i can have the "privilege" of trying to sell cotton candy to people for a whooping $12 a bag, of which i receive 10%. my average paycheck this year has been about $400 a week, which wouldn't be to bad for a job that requires no skills other than shouting, but as i have already stated, i work up to 80 hours a week. The staff are all completely incompetent and most of my co-workers speak another language. I have also been told that i wouldn't get a promotion because i was "to good" at my job, and it would be a waste to promote me to a higher position. so instead they gave the position to my girlfriend, with zero experience in this line of work. Dont get me wrong, i was happy for her, but i still fail to see how this was a sound business decision.

A fairly standard office space staffed by better than average people
Broadcast Assistant (Former Employee), Aurora, ILApril 1, 2015
The company hires people with a clear reflection of the titles it represents. They understand the properties are first and foremost entertainment, and work hard to make sure that those attending will leave as delighted as they walked in.

The pay is standard, the coffee is free, and the management takes care of it's employees.

Principal Performer, Production Assistant (Former Employee), Palmetto, FLOctober 8, 2014
Great work place, lots of career advancement opportunities. Company is growing in fast pace which currently creates occasional management and communication issues but overall great opportunity. I would recommend to a person who loves to live out of suitcase around a year and enjoys adventure and challenge.

Marketing Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Aurora, ILMarch 24, 2014
The environment is great and very casual. I have worked here for almost two years without any raise or promotion. I would like to work for a company with room for advancement, but there aren't very many opportunities in my department.

great benefits, lots of work
Sound Crew (Former Employee), touring showMarch 14, 2014
Pros: benefits, people
Cons: variable management, very long work weeks for the money
on my unit typical work week

mon-travel/pre-rig
tues-load in
wed-open
thurs-1 or 2 shows
fri-1 or 2 shows
sat-3 shows
sun-2 shows and load out, sometimes 3 shows and load out

you'll work 60-90hrs a week, but it's guaranteed work year round with great benefits if you stick around. best health insurance you'll find in the entertainment industry. management varies. it runs the gammit from great to horrible. the people on the crews are usually great and make it easier to stay. you'll get to actually experience a city not just the airport, building, and hotel. i'd go back to another tour if given the opportunity.

Excelent place to work
FCP Department - Self-Employee (Former Employee), Vienna, FlAugust 19, 2013
Pros: traveling and hotel every week
Cons: being apart of my kids
Wake up early in the morning, to get the trucks unloaded... Get down all the merchandise and work equipment... I learned a lot in this job, cause it was a travel job, I traveled all the United States making Disney's shows... The management is good, most of the time... My co-workers are from different places, we are all from different culture, that makes it very interesting... The hardest part of the job was getting all the things back to the truck... the security it wasn't the best... The most enjoyable part of the job was being in different places all around the states, meeting new people, having the chance to help as much customer as I could, the rush, the happiness in the job...

Great insurance but everyone in the company is concerned with covering their a** and blaming is the name of the game. Every email is scrutinized and utilized to set people up.
