Stage Hand (Former Employee) – Fife, WA – August 13, 2018
The job I absolutely enjoyed the most of my work experience. Yes it was stressful, it can have it's drama but none of that means anything compared to the fulfilment of building stages, props, lighting, etc. I absolutely loved working there and left on not horrible terms (my part not them) and still speak to the staff. It was like working with family, I looked forward to be at work every single day. The pay was beautiful too. Sad part is you have to be 18 or older to work there since it is a labor intensive job. Again, amazing place to work for.

Hours were random, Work was long in the sun, had to drive an hour just to get to the places, no warning if you we going to get called in for a job. Very impatient managers, and a lot of favoritism to workers who had been there longer.

The don't care about the employee only the client. no room for advancement if you have a brain. they promote the most incapable people. only good thing i got out of this company was the limited experience that got me into the industry.
Work Here to Earn Lower Pay than a Rhino on exhibit at the Zoo!
Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 11, 2018
Showbiz is filled with many turkeys trying to cut corners to save money. Rhino is just another company that underpays its employees. They have eliminated the traditional pay scale rates. I would not work for them due to their low pay and lack of benefits. They are Union Busters. I would not hire them because I would doubt the skills of many of their underpaid and undertrained techs. Essentially they are a labor pool or temp service for wannabe roadies.

Everything (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 2, 2018
Rhino staging northwest consist of a lot of know-it-all greenhorns who will try to tell you what's what after their 3rd gig. Rhino staging northwest also misses out on COUNTLESS opportunities to stick up for their employees and claim "Its out of their control" just to save face with their clients. Everyone employed at Rhino staging is expendable as is everyone in this industry, but exceptionally so here. Manipulation is a tool frequently used by management to get their calls filled. Human resources at Rhino Staging Northwest is also sun-par with how she treat the employees. She'll meet you with an ungodly attitude one would get from a petty, frustrated wife. The only way you earn any of the trainings is if you take every call they give you no matter how in convenient it is for you. And they will with out a doubt take advantage of your kindness. Would only recommend rhino if you yourself are a strong, thick skinned individual who can read through peoples nonsense. Rhino also has a habit of hiring junkies and drunks and justifying by saying they needed their calls filled.
Do yourself a favor and go to school for this stuff and find a company that will give you benefits and your deserved day rates, because you wont find that at Rhino Staging Northwest.
V3, VSA (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 5, 2018
I am a female and have noticed that a good percentage of females are hired as well as those with physical and mental challenges. They do not discriminate at all. As long as you are able to learn, be punctual, and practice safety AT ALL TIMES, you will be fine. It's hard work and the hours can be long but everyone is cool to work with and you can make friends. I'm completely new to the industry and wish that I had discovered them a decade ago because I love working for Rhino Staging. There's a lot to learn but there's no doubt that I would've made a full-time career out of this at some point because it's actually fun. What a great company. I have had a relatively great experience working with Rhino Staging and for that, I am truly grateful.
Eoe, flexible hours, friendly staff, free training
Stage Hand (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2018
Working with the Seattle team is highly recommended. If you are completely green or cant get hired anywhere else Los Angeles could be for you. Additionally, I'd never hire them for concert or corporate gigs. They're hacks.
on call technician (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 8, 2018
The staff and co-workers really care about each other and I have never had any problems. it is on call work, they understand that some people have busy schedules and don't force you to work, they also don't ask a lot of questions if you turn down a job.
STAGE HAND (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – April 25, 2018
Lack of management and poor wages with very little hours per week were my reasons for leaving. I went from manufacturing stages to becoming a stagehand with a mismanaged group of people who needed help just turning a wrench.
Stagehand (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – April 3, 2018
Work on an on-call basis, typically under 4 hour shifts, with a minimum of 4 hours paid. Relatively simple work with most if it being pushing or lifting road boxes off of trucks and following a lead. Relatively fun atmosphere, work environment always changing. Learn a lot about setting up audip, video and lighting equipment in a fast-paced environment.
Stage Hand (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – March 29, 2018
Really open to training, welcoming, and helpful environments. Fast paced, productive, fun, hard work! Great pay, people are accepting, encouraging, and the company is dedicated to the safety of employees first.
