Live Nation Entertainment

From Everything.Sucks

Live Nation Entertainment is an American global entertainment company, founded in 2010, following the merger of Live Nation and Ticketmaster. The company promotes, operates, and manages ticket sales for live entertainment in the United States and internationally. It also owns and operates entertainment venues, and manages the careers of music artists.

A former employee said this in a review “Ignoring the company laying off / furloughing 30%+ of the company, Live Nation really tries to make itself look like the ultimate place to work. Look at the same exact positions elsewhere and you will realize that they pay much less, but subsidize your pay with free leftover concert merchandise and tickets. Poor pay, and depending on your role, you may or may not be overworked for no extra pay. New managers have absolutely no idea how to manage personalities, and it shows. They need better training without a doubt. If you are applying, ask for salary first and foremost, and KNOW YOUR WORTH."

Kyle Dee says "Concert rescheduled for 12 months later and I cannot attend. Requested refund and told "don't worry, keep your ticket, it's all fine!" All my 4 follow up e-mails completely ignored. Please Ticketmaster ESP, let's resolve this. (Asunto del correo electrónico abajo) [Request received] 20200427 Foo Fighters (Valencia) - reprogramado Solicitud 4033907"
Current Employee - Executive says "C suite is absent during covid. Hardly have all hands. The problem is that people are looking for someone to lead during these times and all we get is an occasional note or conflicting communication. How will we reinvent ourselves?"

Anne Healy says "Refusing refunds on rescheduled concerts is terrible service. I booked tickets for Bon Iver in Madrid, due to Corona it's been rescheduled for January and no refunds available. So I have two useless tickets now."
Former Employee - Runner says "Horrible pay, no overtime pay, emotionally draining"
Runner with hard R (Former Employee) says "This job is for star stricken dipshits who think they are “part of the show.” Tours take advantage of you and your time and respect neither. Watch dumb, hot women get ahead of you based on the promoter wanting to screw them. Unpaid and under appreciated. Dangerous work environment, inhumane long hours driving unsafe vans. Tours try and save money by only hiring 1 runner and working them 20 hours when they should be hiring 2 runners and splitting shifts."
Jacques Verte says "Trying to register a new account and the link "Register" gets nowhere. Is this a legit site, or a scam to capture pwds? Enclined to think it is the second. Do not use."
Current Employee - Tour Department says "I’m very concerned to see some of the comments you’ve shared. As an employee of 8 years, we value your feedback and would like to understand more about the issues you’ve raised so we can properly address them. We hold ourselves to the highest standard when it comes to taking care of our employees and guests who attend our concerts, and take seriously any claims that laws or HR policies were broken. If you feel there are opportunities for us to improve, please reach out to me DorisNg@LiveNation.com."
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) says "They claim "safety" is their top priority! I worked in an area almost completely in the dark. The security check in is a nightmare. Parking is even worse. It would take me two hours to get out of the lot after work. The guests get too drunk and are abusive to staff. Manager gave me no support when guests berated me. I was given a warning because of it. Not very safe."
