Good people, fast paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good people, fast paced, big work load, good company culture. Pay isn't the greatest and most portions don't come with much job security (seasonal). Thanks!

Great place to work

Absolute great place to work. The people are great and always make sure you're taken care of. They're custom technology and knowledge is next to none.

Long work hours, no rest, repetitive tasks

I worked as a photographer and video camera operator at dancebug. Their events are often very long, 12-13 hours easily and you often work continuously without any breaks in between. Events happen across the province, so you drive 2-3 hours to get to the venue, and they only give you 100 which is barely enough to cover gas. Since events usually last multiple days, they do not have hotel or food budget so you are on your own. After 2-3 days of long work hours, and all expenses are deducted, you end up with barely any money with a very sored body. You use your own camera equipments so there are a lot of wear and tear on them. This company has changed name a few times because of its poor reputation, but its run by the same group of people. There are better companies to work for than dancebug.

Pros

Repetitive work, no brain power required

Cons

Long hours, no break, low paid, wear and tear on your own equipments

Bad managment

Employees are amazing, the management is horrible. Super relaxed environment working with some of the most kind people i have ever met. Located near a subway.

Efficient, yet relaxed place to work

For the videographer positions, I would saw working at DRC is a decent job for someone who does freelance work. Everyone that I've met and worked with at DRC were decent people. The work is not too difficult, but you need to be knowledgable about your equipment and be willing to work some long hours if you want to work as a videographer here. Overall, a great place for a freelance camera operator.

Easy going but intense work place

Multitasking is an absolute must working here because on a typical day I can speak to over 20 people about 20 different events. During Feb to June the hours are crazy, the work is fast pace, intense and demanding. The rest of the year is more easy going and a lot goes into planning and preparing to ensure the crazy months work smoothly. Management and co-workers are all easy going and mostly easy to get a long with. Unfortunately the customers and clients are usually very difficult and dealing with them is the hardest part of the job. What is most enjoyable is the challenge, and my feedback being heard.

Pros

Flexible, Lots of Vacation, Generous Management

Cons

Difficult client and customer base, no benefits
