ok so gu1tar center pays min wage. you could say its the McDonalds of the retail music equipment industry. BUT, I get everything at dealer cost and lots of poor people trade stuff in ridiculously cheap. I get first dibs on that stuff. I get to wank on all the guitars I can't afford. and since I work in pro audio, I can play with pro-tools HD. they actually told me "you have to learn all this software so you can sell it" = "pretend your doctor dre and make beats all day" I have my eye on this Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Super Sport. one sweet beast. its relic'd from all the employees giving her extra millage lol.

you have to be 18 and we already sold a spider III with a $130 ibanez short scale guitar. I picked it up while someone was checking out and I was like "this guitar is awsome!" LOL

Have fun ripping people off.

I think it's funny that if you wanted to buy something with minimum wage + your discount, it would still take longer than for me to get it at retail price with my income.

Congradulations. You have become one of the many incompetent zombies that roam the sales floor looking for people buying high dollar items.

Do you know anything about guitars? If so, you just might be overqualified.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.

Do you get commission or do you simply get minimum wage, because honestly my free time is more valuable then minimum wage considering you make less on minimum wage than you do living off the government.

I'm "in the pit" because I click on the "New Threads" button instead of lurking around forums.

18 and working minimum wage? Why not get a real job and actually make some money. Most of us worked minimum wage when we were 15.

Lol I wouldn't feel bad selling somebody a Spider because thats what happened to me when I first started playing, and in turn I sold it to some other kid just starting to play.

I'm on the official GB&C who to listen to. I build guitars. I have a website where I review high end equipment. yeah I'm overqualified and underpaid. but I have a positive attitude. like how can we make this store full of idiots into something for the serious players. if you build it, they will come.

I think the secret society would work. srsly dude. all members would have a special insignia tattoo on their hand with a sign and UG FTW on it. For each year you're on UG, you get another part of the tattoo, maybe a tally system. For each tally is a level, the higher the level, the better **** you can get for free.

fullsail, I dont know why these d-bags are ridiculing you for having a job. Liking your job is just as good as getting paid well. I have a weekend job that pays almost double my old job did, but i HATE HATE HATE waking up and going to work there. At my old job I actually was excited about going to work So yea, everyone critisizing him **** off.
