    Collections Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Thousand Oaks, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Thousand Oaks, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Just like others, I passed the phone interview, however, when I met with the SFMO, and the collections manager, all looked good. However, I was passed on as a candidate with no reason given as to why. This seemed unprofessional to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was first interviewed as a group. I honestly didn't think I'd get the job due to the fact that I didn't know very much about musical instruments. I was then called to attend a second interview. I was interviewed by the general manager and operations manager of the store. They were very easy going and made me feel very comfortable during the interview.
