    Pros

    Exciting environment
    Room to grow
    Passionate people genuinely seeking to improve the experience for both the fans and the industry as a whole

    Cons

    Extremely poor renumeration packages. While this is par for the course though the industry, Live Nation are allowing a lot of talent to slip through their fingers as employers leave to earn higher amounts (at least 50% in most cases) in other sectors. LN might want to consider being the exception to the rule.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff what they are worth and perhaps there will be improved staff retention

    Pros

    Sometimes get to see shows, free tickets if management likes you, most co-workers are really fun to bearound

    Cons

    Don’t bother working unless you suck up to management, special events are a joke and you will be treated like a trashcan, if you need a day off you have to argue to get it

    Advice to Management

    You might aswell start over new, most of the management are greedy and only “promote” and listen to those who they fancy

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment part-time

    Pros

    Mainly the whole purpose of the job is acting as a tour guide and personal shopper for the tour visiting the venue. The pros of the jobs are I got to work backstage with all the production and tour managers, as well as, work along side several artists and bands. Great job to work if you are a music major because of all the networking opportunities. Bonus: I was fed 3 meals a day backstage and got to eat with the crew. Extremely flexible. There is no set schedule when you work, they ask you when you want to work/are available to work. No shame/penalties in turning down work either for this job. Depending on the tour needs, sometimes the days were extremely busy and other times I had a lot of down time. Most of the time during down time, I was socializing with everyone backstage to see how they were enjoying their time at the venue or reading a book. Sometimes if I wasn't running errands or picking/dropping off people then I got to go out into the house and watch part of the concert. When running errands, Live Nation will either provide a 15 passenger van to drive or have you drive your personal vehicle with guests in it and LiveNation does pay for gas in both vehicles if you were using both. Don't have to wear the LiveNation uniform. Basically, you can wear what you want as long as its appropriate and not offensive.

    Cons

    Long hours. Usually I worked a minimum of 12-18 hours each day I got to work. I usually had to be at the venue sometime in the morning (8-9am) and I never knew what time I would get off because of what the needs of the tour were. The earliest I got off was about 11:30pm and the latest was 3:30am. This is a great on the side opportunity, but don't expect to work this job all the time with pay coming in. The job was only durning the summer concert season and I got to work a totally of 5 times the entire summer. It was more like "when we need you" job once a month and usually I was notified the day before to a week in advanced of when they needed me to work. Don't expect to watch the concerts either because you more than likely will be running errands or picking up people during this time. At times, it could be awkward of knowing your place at the venue because of the info meetings going on backstage that management didn't want you to hear, so to get away production runners either hung in the bathroom or the vans they were driving.

    I worked at Live Nation Entertainment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to listen to music at work and be in the pretense of some awesome artists. I also enjoyed having conversations with fans of artists that I listened to.

    Cons

    Working late nights wasn't too good for me, I don't feel like I got paid nearly enough for my job, standing for 9 hours in a row was strenuous, cleaning up at the end of the night was annoying, breaks weren't long enough at all, I didn't actually get to watch the shows!!!

    Advice to Management

    Raise the wages for ushers to at least $9 or $10. Change average break time to at least 30 minutes, I'd like to actually rest my feet.
