I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Guitar Center in October 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online, there were the typical questions as well as ones related to knowledge of gear but apparently that is not enough to get a job there. After applying there for almost 2 years and following up with applications 2-3 times I finally landed an interview. The interview was pretty normal he asked me a few questions, inquired about employment history. I don't guess I got the job, I followed up twice after my interview and was told each time that he still hasn't come to a decision, well it's been a week now and he told me has going to come to decision 5 days after so I am assuming I didn't get the position. They appear to be looking for people with straight up sales experience over knowledge of the gear, I even got that vibe whilst in the interview, despite being a paying customer and haven't outstanding knowledge of all the gear in most the departments at the store.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Guitar Center in April 2012.
Interview Details – Interview wasn't bad. I wish i studied more before the interview. They asked question like 'whats the difference between a balanced and unbalanced cable, pick up patterns, name 3 keyboard manufacturers. I just didn't like the fact that they weren't up front with telling you whether you were hired not. Not hard to say yes or no. I keep calling back for about 2 weeks - 'Call back. Managers on vacation -_-. However im glad i didn't get the job because I heard the pay was horrific. =(
Interview Question – why should we hire you Answer Question
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Guitar Center in June 2011.
Interview Details – The manager and another man (who i assume to be the assistant manager asked a few questions about effects pedals, like what type of effects are there? what are the typical string sizes for electric and acoustic guitars?, name a few effects pedals that you are familiar with. Other than that not much was asked. The rest of things that were asked were vague and hard to answer. I assumed that a position would be offered to me on the spot like they usually are at this store (i spoke with several other employees previous to the interview and all of them returned that they were offered the assumed position at the end of the interview.) However, they said they'd call back in 5-7 days which is understandable. The technical questions were easy but the vague questions were hard to answer...
