    Part Time Guitar Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Online screen (easy if you have common sense) followed by group interview followed by in person 1 on 1 with the store manager. Group interviews can range from 5-15 people with a manager asking everyone the same question. 1 on 1 was pretty long and in depth. They are looking for good customer service skills and a willingness to learn. Product knowledge is good but secondary to attitude.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guitar Center.

    Interview

    Super relaxed. I was dressed in a suit and tie and could not have felt more dumb about it. They asked me typical gear questions like what I played on and what features I'd point out on a guitar. Then they asked me to pitch a PC (pro coverage) and it was awkward but I got through it. They are more interested in finding a sales associate than a gear head I will tell you that.
