    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center.

    Interview

    Went online, applied for four positions at two different locations. Called the store managers to follow up. Scheduled an interview. Was fairly laid back. Didn't feel pressured. They were pretty honest about what the job was like, although they did exaggerate the pay and commission to make it seem like you can make a descent living there.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the differences between different series of guitars of the same manufacturer and model (for example, the differences between a Gibson Les Paul Standard, Custom, Studio, Traditional, Classic, etc.)   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guitar Center.

    Interview

    You apply online, click which position(s) you want and wait for a call for an interview. If it's a brand new store it is a group interview and you go through one with two members of the corporate team (with a group of about 4 or 5 other people with you) and then move on to another room with the managers of the store (store manager, whoever is over sales, and whoever is over operations). They ask you about yourself and give you the floor to ask questions. Then there's a phone interview by whichever manager is interested in you and you wait to see if you get hired or not. It was all very quick but I was hired months later. Be yourself, show your a team player. No prior experience needed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    I filled out the online application at guitarcenter.com and met with the store manager the same day. We sat, one-on-one in his office and talked for a long while about my history as a musician and my work history. It was a very casual conversation mainly about music and how Guitar Center operated. The interview was mainly a judge of my conversational skills and my ability to interact with someone I had first met. I then was taken to meet and spend some time with the two associates in the department I would be working in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Hendersonville, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I met the Interviewer at a hotel because they were opening a location that had not been fully opened yet and he and I talked for about 15-20 minutes. Overall I would say it was more casual in nature and a judgement of my personality rather than qualifications that is typically taken care of by the online resume.

    Reasons for Declining

    Due to timing of moving to west coast. It was a hard decision and one that I hope someday opens up again as we were that impressed by the culture and future
