    I have been working at Fender Musical Instruments full-time

    Pros

    The team I work on is great. Everyone is skilled, friendly, and professional. If you play guitar, the perks are amazing. Great work/life balance. This is possibly the best job of my 12 year career.

    Cons

    Hollywood is weird. Other departments seem turbulent. Sometimes there are questionable decisions made by leadership.

    The interview process started with a meet and greet and walk through of the company. Then the application process followed up by multiple interviews with one on one members of the team i would be working with. Ending with a background check and salary offer negotiations.
