    Pros

    High earning potential if you never let up. Fun opportunity to work around the stuff you love. Great Employee Perks!

    Cons

    Difficult to earn commission bonuses in slow months. DEFINITELY NOT Economy Proof. Same pay structure regardless of market area. Opportunities for promotion are slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with faded commisions bonuses. Lower the hourly rate and pay commission on everything sold.

    I have been working at Guitar Center part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I got to work around people who loved the same thing I did; music. It's a really chill atmosphere and your employer keeps it professional so you don't have to worry about things getting out of control.

    Cons

    If you're a girl working there, it's gonna be a little rough. Sometimes people will treat you like you're not as knowledgeable. And you should probably know that if you're not the ONLY girl there, then you're going to be one out of two girls, among probably 60 other employees. :/
