A typical day can start anywhere from 5-6am to 9-10. Its not usual that we have days that are the same. Most of the time we work several events a day with many different people and usually different clients at each event. It can be a stressful environment for anyone, because everything changes for each event and you have to think quickly and efficiently to setup for the event in time. We have walked into events that took us 10 hours to set up, Theatre productions sometimes take longer, or some take 15 minutes, like a simple keynote presentation.
All of my coworkers had their specialties, mine being Audio, and we were always placed where we would be able to accomplish the most. It was nice to work with people that had different skill sets and brought different things to the table. On that crew I met some of the hardest working people I've ever worked with, and its started at the top. Our boss was someone that loved the job and worked hard to make sure his crew was taken care of. He always thought of who would work best where and used us in places that helped us grow as techies. Working 40 hours in 3 days wasn't uncommon with this job, but we always put the client and the job before our own needs.
