    I have been working at Guitar Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, great discount, awesome coworkers since everyone is a musician.

    Cons

    You'd expect to make a little bit more than just minimum wage when you work for a company this big.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Guitar Center.

    Interview

    Was pretty simple and easy. They were very direct with their questions and were considerate with my time. They offered me the position a few days later after the initial interview.
