    I worked at Music & Arts Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with young, aspiring musicians is extremely intrinsically rewarding. Typically, your coworkers are likeminded, passionate people. The company likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    Some sales goals are unrealistic and based off of a generalization of the company's overall sales, not socioeconomic and geographical patterns and norms. This makes commission incentives nearly impossible for most associates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to reform shortfalls. Employees will stay much longer and turn Music and Arts into a career rather than a stepping stone.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Music & Arts Center (Reynoldsburg, OH).

    Interview

    Very casual experience. Regional manager and store manager who conducted the interview were thorough but enjoyable. They truly want to see you as a person, not as a rehearsed robot.
