It takes a long time to work your way up the call list. Shifts can vary in time. Traveling managers are hit and miss. Need to be able to stand for long periods of time.

IATSE is a union labor stagehand gig. I’ve learned a lot while working here and met some really great people. I just wish the work were more steady and hours more consistent.

I loved working with them and I loved the people, downside is that if you're overflow you don't get a lot of work which makes earning a membership harder. I definitely recommend it as something you should do while you're in school though.
Pros
Union benefits
Cons
It seems pretty dead end unless you network or live in the right area

Great work to supplement your salary at a full time position. Work is not full time, but pay is great and the people make it worth it! It works like this. You get a call for an event. You can opt in, or out. If it works for both parties you attend. Each job varies depending on the event as does the pay. But for a part time, or supplemental salary it is wonderful!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Not great for full time employment

It's long and good hours just not consistent. As some say it's either feast or famine. ;) Great work environment and coworkers though and dynamic work.

A very strenuous workplace. Most days are long and tiring with a typical work day lasting 10 hours. Almost everyone working there is tense, stressed, or on edge. There's usually a dispute daily because of this, especially nearing the deadline of a certain project. Whether between two sections of the workplace (Paint, Construction, Art Direction, etc.) because of miscommunication or a mess-up from one or more sections. Upper management is aware of these issues and there are strides to resolve them. However it's difficult to wrestle this issue because of the nature of this line of work. For new employees with little to no experience, this can be very taxing both physically and mentally.
Pros
Well payed with great benefits if you become a member. Lot's to learn.
Cons
Long hard hours. Lot's of co-worker disputes. Tense enviroment.

Unions are great. The work is demanding and requires technical skill and the ability to collaborate. The days are long but the pay is wonderful. Summers are usually very slow

It's a fun job with the benefit of learning something everyday. With the hourly wage it would be perfect if you got a full forty hour work week each week.

Good work if you can drive to the other side of Atlanta (from me), work any shift, and get work on another production when your's is over. Good experience but a lot of uncertainty as far as your next gig.
Pros
great pay
Cons
Long commute; no job security

The work can be laid back to frantic depending on the show. Everyday I've worked I've learned a variety of skills which keeps it interesting and challenging. The management varies but overall is well handled. Co-workers are laid back but the work can cause irritability in some. Most of the challenge is in figuring logistically how to solve problems and making sure everyone is on the same page even after what can be long hours in addition to seeing how rock shows are assembled. I've enjoyed learning new skills and the flexible schedule allows for the option of maintaining employment in other jobs.
Pros
Compensation and flexable schedule.
Cons
Inconsistant hours with dry patches throughout the year.

Days are long, very long. The average day is 13hrs when working. But while there I have learned much about Set and Stage lighting,Video projection and Camera operations. Management can depend on the personal naturally, there are good and bad bosses, for the most part they are generally most are knowledgeable. Co-workers can also cross the gambit from great to the polar opposite. Hires can be brought in for their knowledge base for what they're willing to work for. And that reflects the job at the time. The hardest part of the job can be the extreme hours, A normal day can be 12hrs long on the average. Which makes long engagements very exhausting. But it is very satisfying making or working on something that people really enjoy. Especially when its something that will be watched and enjoyed for many years.
Pros
Free meals when working, A great experience.
Cons
Long hours, and hurt you social and family life.

Working on TV and films is a good living, however work is limited to the few people at the top of the union, I cannot support myself with only 4 months of work a year and so I need a change of career!
Pros
Meals Paid for
Cons
Hours are always long, no set shift time.
