Terribly managed
Technical Service Representative (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: training
Cons: long hours, unsafe work, pay equal to that of retail, high stress rate, and far too much responsibility.
Every level of worker is being pressured by the level above them. The average technician is under immense pressure. Often working alone, even when the tasks at hand are not safe for one person alone. Shifts often bump into each other giving little to no time for sleep over multiple days, due to poor scheduling and incompetent middle management. The responsibility to pay ratio is extremely lopsided in the company's favour. Highly passive aggressive culture all around. No "teamwork" culture, Upper management clearly making poor decisions causing the company to hemorrhage money. No desire to change it's ways. More interested in perceived image and branding rather than the well being of it's workforce. Recently changed name to Freeman Audio Visual Canada. No change to how it's run.

Demanding, but usually rewarding
Technical Service Representative (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: solid benefits, competitive salary, room for advancement both locally and nationally, positive management team, lots of travel
Cons: long hours, unpredictable schedule, often very stressful, lots of travel
No such thing as a typical work day, but that's just the nature of this industry. Hard work is noticed and rewarded, but very hard work is often all too essential to meeting the deadlines. 16 hour days are not uncommon, but are well compensated. If you can pull it off, it's worth the reward.

If you do not have a life, this is the best place for you
Technical Service Representative (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONApril 5, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: 14-16 hours/day, micro management, don't care attitude.
Low on health and safety requirement, if you are not part of the "boys" you can't get the nice jobs, only delivery and pick up. if you get hurt, they will rush you back even if you are not 100% healed.

Good luck
