    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Tucson, AZ) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Turnover is very high in Guitar Center stores, if you really want to work there just visit and ask to talk to the store manager during day hours. If you are persistent they will hire you. You may also have to join a group interview, which the store manager picks out their candidates visually.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Guitar Center chooses to treat their employees so terribly.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Commission on draw is all that is offered, no raises even after being promoted to Assistant Manager, and still on a commission basis.
