Fun location, easy going, low pay, no benefits, no promise of hours.
Technician (Employé actuel) – Banff, AB – 26 avril 2018
Ive been working at Psav for nearly 3 years and my experience with the company has been mostly negative.
Psav as a company consistently fails to make its employees feel valued. In my time working here I've seen around 10 techs come and go, sometimes within months, sometimes days, and very few stay more than a year.
The main reason for this is the low pay. Psav pays well below industry standards, especially for people with a relevant education and experience as myself.
Raises are few and small and benefits largely nonexistent.
What benefits they do give are closely guarded, I have been working full time hours for years but they refuse to switch my job profile from "contract employee" to "full time employee" because they don't want to pay for benefits (this isn't hearsay or my opinion, this was said to me directly by my manager during my last evaluation).
Sometimes you have to fight for enough hours to live on and sometimes you will be working 60+ hours a week and still be asked to stay longer.
Organization leaves something to be desired. I'm constantly finding out vital information about changes to shows long after it would have been convenient to implement them.
Free lunch. Often relaxed work flow.
Low pay. Inconsistent hours. No support from higher-ups.
