Seems like where/who you work with matters
Technician (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – December 12, 2018
After reading 7 pages of reviews from the last year, PSAV is either loved or hated by people. Personally, I love it. I started November 2017 as a part time tech a month before graduating college. I learned a lot and loved my team at the Hyatt Sacramento. Then March 2018 a brand new hotel (The Kimpton Sawyer) that was built was looking for a full time tech and I was asked if I wanted to move up into that. Being the only tech was nice because I got consistent hours and the property was not very big for just myself and my DET. We recently hired a part timer. 95% of the clients have been an absolute pleasure to work with along with all of the hotel staff. Now im in the process for employee review for a raise. Yes, the pay is bit low and it's not a 9 to 5. However, I do get more weekend days off than I did working in restaurants in the previous 6 years. I went to school for Film/Video Production and learning audio at PSAV was something that my upper division schooling lacked in.
Again, everyone's experience is different because every location and manager is different. Also, only paying $50 a month for health insurance instead of $300+ is a huge perk. Along with 401k and dental.
Do try it out for yourself. I can see myself working here for the next several years.
Working with technology and not food, co workers are cool, free lunches/dinners, work gets easier as you learn, Lighthouse app makes operations so easy!
varying shift days, not truly salary for full-time techs, pm shifts
