    I have been working at Guitar Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I got to work around people who loved the same thing I did; music. It's a really chill atmosphere and your employer keeps it professional so you don't have to worry about things getting out of control.

    Cons

    If you're a girl working there, it's gonna be a little rough. Sometimes people will treat you like you're not as knowledgeable. And you should probably know that if you're not the ONLY girl there, then you're going to be one out of two girls, among probably 60 other employees. :/
