    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Guitar Center in January 2010.

    Interview Details

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

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Guitar Center in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    You apply online, and if you pass the "test", you get an in store interview, and if you pass that interview, you get a second interview. You are pretty much asked integrity questions, quizzed on your knowledge about musical equipment, answer questions about pay and compensation, ask about your future in the business, etc.
