    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Guitar Center (Thousand Oaks, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Just like others, I passed the phone interview, however, when I met with the SFMO, and the collections manager, all looked good. However, I was passed on as a candidate with no reason given as to why. This seemed unprofessional to me.
