I worked under AEG in 2008... it was an arena tour... very well catered, very nice people, easy to work with, I enjoyed it immensely...
Have worked for PSAV for 10 years. A great company to get a start in, with plenty of training in a variety of disciplines available. Or if you like to do paperwork as a "director". Involves doing basic breakout rooms for meeting and general sessions on the hotel side, with the occasional decorator work for private events. Warehouse work will either be humping road cases for load in/out or regional travel to CC's for corporate functions. Pay is kinda "meh" quite frankly, but with decent bennies. Equipment age and state of repair can fluctuate wildly, don't be surprised to find equipment thats been in the field longer than you! I know it is possible to get day rates at tech levels 1&2, but these positions can be difficult to acquire.
Great info Jason,
Thanks for taking the time to respond!
You too Rusty and Buddy!
I have several friends, musos and a security guy and a wardobe person who have worked for Cirque and they had very good experiences including flights home to visit family when you are posted abroad.
GMR Live in wisconsin also does some tour work as well.
Thanx for the companies.
Any particular ones in Europe?
I am based in Greece and looking for any work around
They are all good companies. But I can tell you this much about them since I have had dealing with some of them. When you are talking money with them. Your jaw will drop so far that you may need surgery to fix it. I was contacted to be a TD by one of the companies at the rate of $15 /hr. There is a reason why they are always looking for people. Once the person gets there and see's all they expect them to do. They quickly move on.
