Very good place to hone your production skills and challenge yourself
Technical Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 February 2019
Freeman Audio Visual is a great company to work for if you are willing to learn and adapt to the ever-changing world of the AV industry. The staff at East Matheson Office are always on top of things and ready to tackle any big show thrown at them and the Events team is always ready to tackle a challenge. A great place to work to develop the skills you need to pay the bills.
Pros
Great team of good people
Cons
Can be very hard on your body

Fin abrupte!
TSR (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC1 August 2018
Une bonne compagnie en soi, avec assez d'avantages. Mais il y a des gens en position d'autorité qui gèrent les trucs sur la base de leurs émotions. Tu donnes ton 100% en tout. On te met à la porte pour des trucs qu'on ne peut vraiment pas mesurer, des trucs subjectifs. Ton niveau de productivité importe peu quand tu ne satisfais pas les sentiments de certains dirigeants. C'est là où le bas blesse chez FREEMAN.
Pros
Tu peux faire beaucoup d'heures, ce qui compense le salaire horaire.
Cons
Rien n'est garanti, tu peux tout faire bien pourtant on te dit bye!

Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC21 January 2018
Its a great place to build skills in the Audio Visual, with lost of room to grow. But in show business you have no say in your schedule. Always busy with little time for rest.

A great career starter
Technical Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 January 2018
There are many roles at freeman - mine was customer service and sales. The position taught me to be customer focused and how to troubleshoot problems. In my particular branch the managers were great, but stretched too thin and could not focus on individuals as much as they should. Long hours are to be expected working here!

Freeman Audio Visual Canada is a large multimedia company. I have learnt a lot here, as there is readily available on-the-job training. The most rewarding part of the job is customer satisfaction.

Technical Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario15 February 2017
Great place to learn and to work. You are exposed to training at least twice in a year which helps a great deal. Staff are generally happy with compensations and commissions and the general job security. Salary is on the average and can be reviewed further to help their ratings.

Good place to work
Technical Services Representative (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 February 2017
Decent pay, benefits and wages, advancement opportunities, unionized environment so layoffs happen seasonally. Managers are fair and impartial, but layoffs happen seasonally. Also reduced hours on a seasonal basis. Sometimes difficult to make ends meet.

Interesting technical job
