Listen, learn and work smarter not harder
Audio Visual Event Technician (Former Employee) – Coachella valley – March 6, 2019
You start off Green, meaning you don't know nothing. All employees are great to work with. Management has a few good apples but the majority are full of themselves. They make you feel like a peasant. Never let anyone disrespect you just because they have a higher title. Work hard means more hard work while others sit on their backs and watch YouTube. You get to meet different people with great personalities and others with not so great attitudes. You have to deal with people who are miserable and hate their job. Stay positive and focused. Training is ok but you never get to use those skills. You're just a slave. I gave 100% but got 5% recognition. Learn by asking others who operate. You work 7-8 months depending on job a site (resort, convention center). You get 3 months of unemployment (summer). Learn a skill - video, audio, camera operation. If you don't have no skills then your a stagehand. You do the work that nobody wants to do because their weak and lazy. Customer service is important because feedback will come back to your office. Remember that your a guest at the hotel, resort. The hospitality industry is ok if you like to cater and serve people. Haters come in many forms. Just work harder than the next guy and keep your mouth shut. In 8-10 years you might get promoted unless someone moves, dies and retires! Listen! Learn! & Work hard! Bother you project manager and director for training! Tell them what you want not what they want. You might be great at video but unskilled in audio. Good luck!
Benefits, free food sometimes, beautiful people
Management, untrained technicians, work/social life, spiteful resort employees, scheduling never set, no support
