    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center.

    Interview

    Super relaxed. I was dressed in a suit and tie and could not have felt more dumb about it. They asked me typical gear questions like what I played on and what features I'd point out on a guitar. Then they asked me to pitch a PC (pro coverage) and it was awkward but I got through it. They are more interested in finding a sales associate than a gear head I will tell you that.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Visalia, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Basically asked me if I could read and write and use a computer. They also wanted to know if I had any customer service experience. The interviewing managers were nothing more than snot nosed brats that looked fresh out of highschool. The store manager looked half stoned all the time. Her tattoos proved that she was a big stoner

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Westlake Village, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed by corporate HR hiring manager who was interested in filling the position quickly. This person asked the usual and general questions. There were no technical questions since they had no accounting background. Only went through the first initial phone screen. After that, if you passed, I suspect they would have proceeded with in person interview at their corporate headquarters.
