    I worked at Sweetwater full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked there 1999 to 2000. The most useful and best organized music technology training and information available anywhere. The most opportunity for advancement and growth. The best leadership and transparency in management. The benefits are far beyond any dream job you can imagine. The best Team environment out there.

    Cons

    Not enough time in a day to talk to customers and solve their problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change anything - you are The Company that has it right!

    I applied online – interviewed at Sweetwater.

    Interview Details

    It was an intense, day-long interview. Aside from silly HR tests, it was a fun day, including lunch with senior management as well as my future coworkers. I expected the interview to be a few hours long but it turned into a full day affair.
