Pros

In general, the atmosphere is very positive, very fun. Work is exciting to go to and be at.

Cons

Income does not match the output. They entice you with promise of commission, but it's not enough even if you make it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your salesman like gold. Your metrics ultimately depend on them.

    Horrible Place to Work

    I worked at Guitar Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They had great discounts for their employees.

    Cons

    There was no leadership or guidance in my job. There were a lot of politics in my department...a lot of cliques. It was a very immature place to work. They gave me a boss that had no clue what my job entailed. I would never go back. The worst job in my life!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire people, make sure they have someone to lead them and train them properly.
