Summary:

An Audio Technician is responsible for the prep, load-in, set-up, operation, load-out, de-prep, and testing/routine maintenance of rental equipment, as assigned. This includes working in the warehouse, as well as on site at shows in whatever locations they are booked, indoor and outdoor. Work times and days vary.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  1. Prepare the audio equipment for shows you will be working, including testing the equipment, wiring as much as possible ahead of time, notifying the Rentals Project Manager of any possible changes to the equipment list for whatever reason (something necessary has been omitted from the list, is unavailable, etc.), loading equipment into trunks and cases and labeling them with the show name and logo, and moving the equipment into the designated holding area for that show.
  2. Assist with getting other shows ready when assigned or asked to do so.
  3. Load equipment for safe transportation to its destination. This may include planning a pack that is both within legal weights and efficient for loading and unloading.
  4. Drive a vehicle if needed.
  5. Set up and operate equipment at shows and events, representing Spectrum Sound in a positive manner and at a professional level. Cooperate and work with the client and other crew members respectfully. Follow any guidelines set by the tour, show, or event. If more than one Spectrum employee is working the show or event, know which employee(s) are the on-site decision-makers for Spectrum; consult with them on any issues and follow their instructions.
  6. When the show or event is finished, pack equipment and load it for transportation. All equipment should be packed in the same manner in which it was shipped whenever possible.
  7. Unload equipment into warehouse.
  8. De-prep and return all equipment to its designated warehouse space, testing and cleaning as assigned and/or needed.
  9. Assess any faulty equipment. If possible and you have permission to do so, make minor repairs. If not, notify the Inventory Control Specialist. Any equipment not repaired should be marked clearly with an assessment of the problem, your name, and the date; then put in the area designated for items needing repair.
  10. When asked or assigned to do so, build cables, paint and stencil cases, clean cables and other equipment, organize areas, sweep the floor, and do other housekeeping tasks in the Rentals areas.
  11. When asked or assigned to do so, be Spectrum’s point of contact at a show or event. This requires great discernment in what to say and to whom.
  12. Always support co-workers, and never speak negatively about co-workers or Spectrum Sound.    If you have any concerns about them or any aspect of your work, speak with your manager privately.
