I interviewed at Guitar Center

Interview

The interview was several of us at a time. It was moreso a sales pitch for working for the company rather than harping on anyone's qualifications. It was pretty relaxed and made you feel like it was a good place to be for a muscian.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center

Interview

Overall it was a pretty quick interview process. Met with the recruiter, manager, and then director before being verbally offered the role within 2 weeks. Ultimately declined due to company culture and low salary. The interviews made it clear that the growth opportunities would be limited in the company due to different departments not being as open to sharing internal data with each other. As a heads up for future job seekers, I actually did ask my referral about the last BI Analyst and why they left the role. They mentioned that said Analyst is getting paid 33% more at their current job than what Guitar Center offered me. They also mentioned that innovation and ability to do their job was often stymied or delayed due to not the best communication happening across departments and from senior leadership. In conclusion, the interview process was as seamless as possible. I enjoyed my interviews and the people on the actual team for the role are very nice and seem very collaborative.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Las Vegas, NV) in Nov 2021

Interview

Informal meeting with district manager. open, candid discussion lasting approximately 30 min followed by brief walk through of store & tech bench. The DM was very friendly and seemed most concerned to know about my experiences and opinions regarding my guitar repair business. interview took place in a storage room with a small table & chairs.

Interview Questions
  • I can't recall being asked one particular question other than if I was interested in the position. it was more like a chat between two guys about music, life and guitars. I asked most of the questions and the DM was happy to share specifics about the position and work culture. the DM had already done his homework by perusing my website, Facebook and google pages. I found that we had mutual friends & acquaintances in the business and that I had been vouched for prior to our meeting. he seemed to know what I was capable of before he asked for the interview.

Difficult Interview

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Port Hueneme, CA) in Oct 2021

Interview

I went three rounds with this company, all the way to the final interview. They had been responsive up until after that interview, then completely ghosted! I did all the standard follow up thank you notes after the interviews, so I know they saw those and just chose to ghost me after that last round. I then received an AUTOMATED EMAIL informing me they had chosen another candidate. There’s absolutely no excuse for not following up in person after doing a final round to let me know they went with another candidate. Completely unprofessional and disrespectful. I absolutely am glad I don’t work for this company. It’s also worth noting the position was offered at $50K, which is 20K-30K BELOW THE AVERAGE for this position, in this location. It wasn’t a remote position. So they neither pay or treat potential candidates well. This was not an entry level role, either. Candidates were expected to have a decent amount of knowledge and experience on the job responsibilities.

Interview Questions
  • Asked about on-site search, CMS, technical programs used, how one would improve the website.
