So You Want to Work for PSI Seminars?
PSI Seminars complaint
PSI has consistently underpaid their office staff. When I worked for PSI my salary was around the $25k a year. At one stage our income was increased after we showed that they were paying us under legal minimum. But it was only increased to meet minimum wages as if we were doing a 40 hour week and like most PSI Office staff we did hours far in excess of 40. I used to get to work at around 8 because it meant I got a couple of hours quiet and then often stayed till midnight. Lunch breaks were rare and dinner was nearly always something delivered.
As for the work load... it was never ending. You got one weekend off a month offically but that was a joke. You got Mondays off, not Sundays, as we were running the basic course. Often we had to turn up at a course because the facilitor or course leader wanted you there or the course supervisors were calling you constantly.
As for holidays that was the biggest joke of all. If you wanted a holiday you had to provide cover for you role. I remember one night before I was due to go on my first holiday after 13 months on staff and the PSI Officer manager, Deanna, was telling me that unless I got the whole week covered I would not be allowed to go. I was lucky I had a friend who covered for me. But even on the holiday they called and faxed me and I had to do work in my hotel room. I even had to pay for the fax use to boot.
Leaving PSI Seminars was the best move I ever made."
