    Contract Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Peachtree City, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Music & Arts Center (Peachtree City, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Really laid back, they ask basic customer service and sales questions. Commission is earned once you're a full-time employee. I actually had two interviews, actually. The first was in Marietta and we did it in the storage room where they keep all of the instruments. It was a basic interview and I got hired on the spot, but the manager was concerned about my commute, so he sent me to Peachtree City. There, we just did the interview in a practice room and I got hired on the stop again. Of course, they ask if you have any musical experience and what not, but I'm not sure if you absolutely need it to get hired! It's really an easy-going type of place to work, be yourself, dress nice, but you don't need to be super fancy with it. Enjoy it and I'm sure you'll be just fine! :)
