    I worked at Guitar Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get great insight into the world of Audio. Product knowledge helps you if you're in the music industry.

    Cons

    Very competitive if you don't have a clientele. They drive on making sales and emails are a prime way to be top on the list in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees as much as you can so that they can make as much sales as they can. Send the noobs clients and if they fail then so be it.... you tried,

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

    Pros

    Good Company culture and winning attitude. Strong market share and passionate people about music and the success of the musicians they serve.

    Cons

    People were in roles that were not qualified or were promoted to their level of incompetency. They work the store crews very hard and at the time without much structure to succeed. I am sure it have changed now.

    Advice to Management

    Its all new management now so I am sure they will do a good job.
