Enjoyable
Assistant Director of Event Technology (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: busy market
Cons: the property someone works at could possibly make or break them.
A good place to get a start in AV. I loved meeting all of the clients and doing such different events. Good workplace with networking opportunities. The pay was not great and PSAV had become very corporate after the Swank AV merger. The job position didn't work well for me though so I left to find a better fit.

You really are just a number
A number (Former Employee), A numberJanuary 10, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: management management management
The company itself is actually pretty good, just look at their stats. However management? Worst I've ever seen or even heard of for that matter. Coworkers are all you have. If you ever have any issues or concerns you need to express, you're better off keeping them to yourself. You'll just be wasting your breath. Best of luck to all of you.

PSAV review
Sales Coordinator (Current Employee), New Orleans, LAJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: overtime opportunities, flexible schedule, strong synergy, long hours
Cons: contract position, lack of advancement, no raises
Mornings start as early as 5am and days end as late as 3am. Normally, review daily schedule of personnel and schedule of daily events. Manage previous evenings grievances via e-mail or phone. Do daily accounting from the previous 48hrs to confirm correct payments. Review upcoming groups proposals and confirm signature of contracts. If client is in house, it is a must to do a face to face follow-up to confirm good equipment and services. Report to any needed meeting and reviews with new clients or contracted staff.

At least they had benefits.
Even Technology Specialist (Former Employee), Tampa, FLDecember 28, 2014
Pros: good direct management
Cons: bad district management. rarely free lunch.
They hired me as a Fulltime seasonal employee and the recruiter promised that I would be advanced to Fulltime (nonseasonal). Probably a fault on the recruiter's part, but 7 months into the job I was dropped to part time and lost all benefits, time off, raises, and my bonus (which I qualified for).

The best stable job out there!
Driver Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CADecember 18, 2014
Pros: starting pay, benefits, and stable job.
Cons: can be very overwhelming on busy work days.
I had a short, but great experience working with PSAV. Usual work day starts at 8am till about 5pm. Depending on the season, days can be long and boring with nothing to do to very busy working days. PSAV has amazing benefits and many ways to get promoted.

fun place to work but has a lot of slow periods where there are no shifts
Audio Visual Technician (Current Employee), Atlanta, GADecember 12, 2014
Pros: free lunches, frequent breaks
Cons: a lot slow periods
PSAV is a cool company to work for. I feel like this is the easiest job i have ever done simply because everyone shows us what to do and is willing to teach who wants to be taught. Only downside is the slow periods when their are no activities going on at the properties you basically are not working until they call you. overall good side gig but you will need another job.

Technical Specialist (Current Employee), Detroit, MISeptember 30, 2014
Cons: bad management from the top down. cutting corners is always preferred.
If PSAV would stop trying to monopolize the industry and attempt at being the best, instead of the biggest, this company would make major headway with growth and culture.

Management lacks communication; sometime is kind of weird place to work.
Consultant (Former Employee), ChicagoJuly 29, 2014
Management lacks communication; sometimes is kind of weird place to work for.

I have been for a while there and DETs or RVPs (most of them) lack respect and knowledge about financial and accounting function of the entity. It was a pain to explain them and make a real connection.

No one cares
Audio/Visual Technology Specialist (Current Employee), Miami, FLJuly 1, 2014
In South Florida, PSAV revolves around the regional managers and how much money they can make at anyone's expense. They avoid using their part timers from around May to about August. Lastly, they will not fight for their own employees regarding any issues with hotel staff nor clients.

Similar to AAVC, but less personal work environment
Event Technology Specialist III (Former Employee), Half Moon Bay, CAJune 25, 2014
Pros: some enjoyable co-workers
Cons: bad management
I wasn't pleased working with this company. Every employee seemed to only be a number. They had a antiquated training program that took up time without having any real payoff, and they were required to be completed.
