    I worked at Putumayo World Music full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Putumayo has a great mission, introducing people to music and culture from around the world. And, the music is good! The artwork for most of the CDs is really great too.

    Cons

    It's the music business and people aren't buying CDs anymore. Unfortunately they didn't adapt fast enough and are losing more and more each year.

    Advice to Management

    Analyze what is working and isn't. With no budgeting and analysis, a lot of money is wasted on what seems like the thing to do, but isn't paying off.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Putumayo World Music (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process is very quick and informal. They ask you about your prior experience, personality questions, and then they give you a couple free cd's before you leave. Took 20 minutes at most.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    $5 dollars per sale, regardless of how big of a sale you make.
