    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Westlake Village, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Usually there are multiple interviews and if the recruiters can schedule them all in one day they will. The recruiters are very helpful, but much of the time you are waiting on those who you interview with to be timely and responsive.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Bakersfield, CA) in October 2014.

    3 separate interviews with the operations manager, customer service manager and store manager. They all pretty much asked the same question, which lead me to believe they were just checking out my personality. I felt pretty visibly nervous, but thy must have liked my green hair.

    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.
