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

    Pros

    I got to play with awesome gear, take lots of breaks, and learned a bunch.

    Cons

    The management was awful. You are paid by your commission minus your hourly wage, then taxed as a "bonus" at almost 40%. Lowest performers were laid off every month

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
