I worked at Guitar Center full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Discount on gear, networking with musicians and industry professionals, instant knowledge of new releases.

Cons

Low pay, have to "fade your check" to earn a commission, you are not just a salesperson but also a housekeeper and a merchandiser, most co-workers have zero understanding or knowledge in their field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop threatening lower management with losing their job, it rolls down hill. Do better market research before opening a store that won't make a profit for years.

    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.
