    I have been working at Music & Arts Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The manager training was a very positive experience for me, even having worked for the company for almost 5 years before becoming a manager.
    The people are hands down the best part of working here, everyone seems to genuinely care about each other.
    The benefits are also great, especially for full-time salespeople - they get the same benefits as managers.

    Cons

    The pacing of the year can be inconsistant - super busy during September, partial ghost-town for Q1. This makes the the work/life balance difficult to manage during the busy season, when managers often end up working 60+ hour work-weeks.

Music & Arts Center is not a performance hall like the Carnegie, but it will help budding musicians get there. The company operates about 100 musical instrument and accessories stores located in some 20 states from Maine to Florida. Its retail outlets also offer music lessons, band and orchestra instrument sales and rental programs, and musical equipment repair services catering to beginners. Most stores also sell a limited assortment of guitars, amplifiers, percussion instruments, keyboards, pro audio and recording equipment. Benjamin O'Brien, father of current president... More
