No guarantee of hours, below average wage
AV Technician (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 October 2016
Psav talks a big talk..but thats all they are. Even as a full-time employee you arent guaranteed any hours. When there are hours they have no problem scheduling you 12+ hours. They pay below national average for AV technician starting between $13-15/hr. yearly raise depends how many stars out of 5 you get on your review which determines a percentage of a lump sum that is to be split between every employee per location. (You are lucky if you get a 50 cent raise). Human resources can be hard to contact with concerning issues as they are located in ontario with emails commonly going unresponded. Little room for advancement, if you enjoy being a hands-on technician there is zero advancement opportunities. In an anonymous survey one of the biggest concerns was that employees did not feel appreciated or valued by the company.
Pros
Benefits for full time
Cons
Long or no hours, poor wage, little room for advancement

Horrible management and poor pay
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 May 2016
If you're looking for a job in AV I wouldn't recommend PSAV. They under staff their hotel properties to save on costs. So people are overworked and underpaid bottom line. Also, there is little to no training offered by management, you're basically on your own to ask questions and learn on the job with little help. Poorly run company with little rewards.
Cons
Almost everything

Producing live events and leading skilled and enthusiastic staff
Director, Event Technology (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 January 2015
A typical day includes the pre event phase: selling a show idea to a client, working within their budgetary expectations, understanding their vision. We then move into the event phase: assigning staff to set up, operate and dismantle each and every event. From there we move into follow up as we survey each client to consistently improve our operational model as we move on to the next set of live events.
Pros
work in a castle every day!
Cons
non consistent hours.
