If one is interested in the "tradeshow industry" Freeman in the Premier place to work, learn, grow.
Floor Manager (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 30, 2017
As previously indicated, this is a good place to work.
As the Absolute Leader in the trade show industry, one has the opportunity to start a an entry level position and progress to other positions with more responsibility and compensation.

Sweat shop
FREEMAN (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAApril 27, 2017
This company will work you to the bone. Don't work here if you value your sanity. Freeman is a sweat shop, if you are not on the verge of a nervous breakdown from the volume of work. Then according to them you are not working hard enough.

When I was there they had just reached 2 billion in sales. A month later when our yearly review came up we did not get a raise.

Be worn specially if you are a 3d designer. Stay away.
Pros
none
Cons
too much work for one person

Worked hard and made good money but one week you work 60hrs and the next you could work 15hrs.
Exhibit Specialist (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJanuary 17, 2017
Stand around till you get your job assignment. Then you get your crew and go to where the job is located. Count the creates, put down padding and carpet, and set up the booth. A job can take you 4hrs to 60hrs. The hardest part of the job was when you had to wait around for freight.
Pros
Every day was different and the money was good.
Cons
A lot to juggle for one person and parking was a pain, You had to get to work an hour before your shift started just because of parking.

LEAD/FOREMAN (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 4, 2016
Unpredictable. Their are so many different skills, lessons, job duties, personalities its hard to choose one but " HANDS DOWN " If you treat people the way you want to be treated you can excel anywhere you choose to go in this industry. The most enjoyable experiences I cherish is the sense of accomplishment after a huge job is completed. When it seems like it cant possibly be reached because
the size of task is so enormous. That to me is the greatest feeling and a major reason why I LOVE MY INDUSTRY!!!!!!
Pros
Huge paychecks
Cons
Exstreamly high volume of work in short time frame
