Great Place to Work

I've been working at Got Light for over 10 years and it has been a great place to work. They really look out for their employees and they do their best to address everyones needs.The events industry is a tough industry to work in with long hours, late nights and weekends, and in all kinds of conditions, but the folks at Got Light do their best to keep people happy and not too stressed.


Good people, work from home options, flexible schedule.


Nights, weekends, and crazy hours are the norm in this industry.

Great Place to Work!

The people at Got Light are amazing. So many smart and talented people who are passionate about what they do and delivering the best looking events and customer experience in the Bay Area. There is a lot of opportunity to work on different types/ sizes of events and opportunities for creativity.


Great co-workers, fun and creative environment


The event industry is demanding

Amazing group of people!

Such a passionate and fun group of people with exposure to an amazing array of events. I got to learn so much about stuff I never even knew about...and I continue to learn more and more every day!


Family environment, mom & pop vibe. Super creative, fun, exposure to a wide range of people and events!


It's hard work, but that comes with the events industry!

Great company to work for

The management started as show techs so they value good people and pay well. The hours are crazy but that’s the nature of the event industry. Every show has different challenges. Great job for team oriented problem solvers.

Must Work Hard! Great Environment!

Great place to work with many amazingly talented people! The hours can get crazy BUT it's expected in this industry! Plus I like the overtime! It's a changing environment, many new people as the company keeps growing! Owners are cool and completely involved. Not a bad job at all!


Great people, decent pay, good benefits, parking available at office


Not many growth opportunities, office location isn't near bart

My time with Got Light

I transitioned from field installer to warehouse associate a couple years ago and have had a great experience. The company is very friendly and almost family like. The work is always varied and the jobs they did are interesting and beautiful. It can get a little busy as they are always in demand and have a lot of shows all the time, but overall the workload is balanced pretty well. I would have stayed longer, but my partner was relocated for work, so I am off to LA now.


Steady, reliable work and good benefits.


Working in a warehouse can get cold, but that is a given.

Not a bad company but could be better

Not many companies take the time for training ......this I liked. The people were fantastic. Unfortunately too much overtime; it got to the point where I just worked, slept and back to work again.


interesting projects, good vibe with staff


consistent pressure, no ebb and flow, just intense from start to end

They lie to you and you have to watch your back constantly. The supervisors are lazy and blame the warehouse workers and in my 3 years they have overturned the warehouse employees multiple times.

Fun people, poor pay

I had a blast working with everyone there, and learned a lot. The hours were extremely inconsistent and strenuous. The only way to make good enough money to survive in San Francisco was to go into overtime, which was extremely rare.


Fun work, fun people


terrible and inconsistent hours, very poor pay
