Imagine working for a company that deeply cares about your development while investing in your growth and learning. Here at Premier, one of our core values is continuous improvement. We are dedicated to helping our employees advance their knowledge, sharpen their skills, and try new ways to provide better service. One of the ways we demonstrate this commitment is through FlexForce, a paid, apprenticeship-like program that provides training for those looking to get started in the entertainment technology industry.

Earn While You Learn with FlexForce

FlexForce offers entry, flexibility, and control, working with your schedule to provide real-world experience when it’s most convenient for you. “If you are interested in a career in this field, it makes sense to find flexible work experience in the industry while you are going to school,” says Dave John, Chief Operating Officer at Entertainment Technology Partners. “Flexibility is the key to making this work. There are not a lot of opportunities that have this type of paid work experience with such great ability to adapt around your schedule.” No matter your skills or experience, FlexForce allows you to break into the entertainment technology field, build a network, and earn while you learn.

New FlexForce employees are trained on safety protocols and how to prep audiovisual equipment for concert tours and corporate events, rotating through Premier’s inventory control and quality control departments. Individuals manage their own schedules by picking up shifts when it’s convenient for them through the app WhenIWork. “The unique thing about the program is that it offers training in every discipline we offer at Premier, including LED, audio, video, and lighting,” says FlexForce Project Coordinator Yssa Augustin. “FlexForce also provides flexibility around school schedules, work schedules, or any other time conflicts.”
