It took 6 months from application to phone interview... Then an in-person interview--be sure to wear a suit, or at least dress clothes and a tie! Two weeks after the interview, another phone interview/offer. Then a drug test, and I was hired.
Interview wasn't hard.

Yes. Employees sign documents declaring they will keep trade secrets, they will not use equipment for personal use, and they will not work for competitors. It is possible to hold another AV job while at PSAV, but difficult. Ask your director of you are unsure of the policy.

Yes, PSAV hires all kinds of employees with little to no experience in A/V. Most technicians have at least some technical experience in some field, such as audio, video, production, or lighting. But the turnover rate with the company is so high, they often do not care how much experience a technician has with A/V.

Many times, especially during the months of October though March, we have incredibly long work days and weeks (60 plus hours per week). This is true throughout much of the convention industry so one good thing about this is that we are all in the same boat.
