    I have been working at Fender Musical Instruments full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The organization really takes initiatives to develop and promote internal talent - I have been here for about three months and have already gained excellent insight to other areas of my career I have never been exposed to. I love the fun and casual work culture in addition to all of the employee events that go on and the ability to see performing artists in the atrium. The building is outstanding! One of a kind.

    Cons

    Sometimes there could be old habits that need breaking in order to get the company on board with changing times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the goodwork in developing your staff so they can come back and implement that knowledge they gained to improve the quality of their work,

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fender Musical Instruments.

    Interview Details

    Applied a month prior to receiving an email asking me to attend an interview at their headquarters. I was given a tour of the new and very cool building, and after that two people (recruiter and hiring manager) interviewed me and asked me many standard interview questions. It seemed like one of the longest interviews I've ever had, and though none of the questions were that difficult, the number of them really started to make my head spin and my mouth dry. After that, I was led to the HR manager for ANOTHER interview, which was shorter, but she asked vastly more difficult questions which I stumbled on, and ultimately I believe this second, tired interview, led to me not getting the position.
