I have been working at Bardel Entertainment full-time (More than a year)
-Ample opportunity to work on many diverse, fun projects with big name companies.
-Engaging and personable immediate leadership. (Leads/Supervisors)
-Willing to teach
-Amicable atmosphere on floor with artists
-Studio located in a great location (Kelowna)
-Mismanaged production schedules put considerable pressure and stresses on artists.
-Tight production schedules doesn't leave room for artists to practice, learn and grow.
-Miscommunications on past projects between production and artists/leads/supervisors lead to negativity. However, Bardel has learned from those missteps and seems to be doing better.
Advice to Management
-Fight for the artists
-Work with us from the trenches, your example speaks volumes.
-Be realistically optimistic. You don't have to be smiling all the time, but be realistic about the situation while optimistically seeking solutions.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bardel Entertainment (Kelowna, BC) in March-2015.
Over the internet via video conference via skype. One on one interviewer with HR. Asked for previous experience and what kind of shows i would like working on the most
