When your employer is wrong...
In one of my recent gigs as a production assistant, I noticed that the address for a specific venue was incorrect. I politely pointed this out to a producer, who thanked me for the information. Later on, I received an email stating that the previous address was correct, yet I knew they were mistaken. I considered the possibility that perhaps, I was incorrect, and left it at that (even though I had lived in this city for my whole life; they were only visiting).
When we traveled to the address given, we discovered I had been correct. The producer in the car with me emailed everyone and told them it was not correct...that we were just there, yet the response was resistant of this information. I tried again to let them know that the address to which they would travel was not only incorrect but did not even exist. In the end, they all went to the wrong address anyway with the talent in the car.
I can't help but feel like they were unhappy with me after that. They returned to my city for another production, and I applied to work for them again with no success.
My question is this: What was the correct protocol? Should I have kept my mouth shut after my initial attempt? Should I have persisted? Did I do something wrong by even trying to let them know?
