Does this story sound familiar?

It's your first day as ME at a new Theatre. You're standing in the absolute disaster that is the electrics shop. You scan the situation, and calculate:
• Condition of fixtures, equipment, tools and expendable inventory
• Shop space allocations and work flow optimization
• Time, personnel, and material resources

Then you head out to the theatre to get a handle on THAT mess.

Now fast forward through all the hard work. It's opening night and someone introduces you as "The one who makes the magic happen." It's a nice compliment, but you know that the "magic" is your skill, your experience, and your organization.

Barbizon needs that skill, experience, and organization. As a Barbizon Service Technician you'll:
• Provide excellent external and internal customer service
• Advise systems integrators on system design
• Evaluate project site conditions and status
• Provide efficient and effective telephone support for our customers
• Troubleshoot, repair, and upgrade lighting equipment and related controls
• Impress customers, contractors, and passersby with your cool, collected confidence

Barbizon technicians have been magicians since 1947. Along the way they've been well compensated and received a nice package of benefits. Not a bad deal. Interested?
