    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sam Ash Music (San Diego, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was cool. Andrew was legit, but if I would have know how crappy the pay was, I would have never applied. What a waste of time!! I make more money jamming out on a corner, without having to deal with bum musicians.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sam Ash Music (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    - Called
    - Invited for interview with studio manager
    - invited for meeting and interview with store manager
    -Discussion, no real "questions".
    - It was more me interviewing them. It does not pay much and they need good very qualified reputable instructors so the ball is pretty much in your court. However, the corporate policy regarding pay and so forth is what it is.Not nearly what a professional stand alone music school would pay.

    Negotiation

    easy no issues

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sam Ash Music (Torrance, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Picked up application in person, filled it out and brought it back. Got a call about a week later. Interviewed with 1 person. She was nice but I seemed to be doing most of the talking. It was hard to get a feel for where I would fit into that particular store or for what the actual compensation scheme would be. They informed me that I was declined within about a week. I appreciated the relatively quick feedback.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sam Ash Music (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First applied online, real quick I got an email response with another online questionnaire, a couple of days after that an email to schedule an appointment with the sales manager in 5 days, and after that another interview with the general manager in another 5 days. It turned out well, pretty straight forward about it, if you evidence enough knowledge, disposition and understanding that it is a job with minimum salary plus commissions, you'll be fine.
