I thought by coming to Gibson I'd be working for a world class guitar company, I was wrong.

Hourly Worker (Current Employee) Nashville, TN

ProsExcellent co-workers. It's interesting to see the process that goes into building a guitar, if you're into that.

ConsAbsolutely terrible communication between management and employees. Schedule is constantly up in the air. You're allotted vacation days but basically never allowed to use them. You're given one heck of a sales pitch about the company when you start, but you'll find out soon enough it's not much more than a sales pitch. If you're thinking of working here, BE SURE TO ASK IN THE INTERVIEW THE HOURS YOU WILL BE WORKING, DON'T LET THEM BEAT AROUND THE BUSH AND BLOW SMOKE IN YOUR FACE. They'll tell you one thing but when you start working it will be something else. If you're absolutely desperate for a job, give this place a shot. If not, you'd be better off somewhere else.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront with employees. Not being upfront gives the impression you don't know or don't care. It builds resentment and contributes to low morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

He thinks its'… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
