Entertainment Technician was asked...28 April 2015

At the second interview, I met with a two person panel. A male and a female. The male did all the talking and asked very detailed questions about the job I was applying for. In this case I applied for soundboard operator. He asked about signal flow, typical mic placement, digital sound board operation, analog sound board operation, amplification, speaker placement, arrays, rigging, DSP, trouble shooting electrical and signal flow problems. He also showed and asked me about diagrams and equipment identification. BUT... he also asked lots of questions relating to lighting like lighting plots, programming, DMC cabling, intelligent lighting, lekos, source 4's, rigging and placement. Then he went on to details about A/V...LCD projector setup and placement. Screen setup - tripod and fast fold, multi projector setup, room acoustics, lighting and so forth. He also went into detail about theatrical setup and terminology. All in all, if you knew your stuff and can comfortably set up and troubleshoot sound, lighting and a/v, it should be pretty easy. Anyways, I hope this helps.

I've been doing concert and a/v for many years, so it was pretty easy. There were little things like cables he showed me that I haven't worked with before but can easily be figured out. I didn't have experience doing theater, only the acting side. That's the only part I had difficulty with. Been three weeks and still waiting for an answer. Hopefully soon Less

What would you say to a guest who walked up to you and asked where the nearest bathrooms are? What would you do/say if you didn't know where the nearest bathrooms were?

1 Answers

I would gesture in the direction of the bathrooms and give them directions to the bathrooms. If I didn't know where the bathrooms were, I would tell them that, and then I would ask if it was alright if I asked my supervisor/another employee where the bathrooms are so that I can help the guest.
