Yes, a pitmonkey is going in for an interview at Guitar Center tonight. What are some things to do, and things not to do? (not entirely serious)

I've got my resume and a shnappy outfit, and given the manager a CD with my best recordings. It should go well, and if not, too bad.

But I've been enjoying thinking of some corny stereotypical techniques.

1- Walking in with my guitar over my shoulder. "This? Oh. Just my axe, brah. Take it everywhere"

2- Drawing a guitar on my neck or something. "I've had this tattoo since I was 4, breh. That's just how passionate I am about guitar."

3- Wait for interview by playing Stairway to Heaven, Sweet Child of Mine, Freebird, and Smoke on the Water.

4- "I'm SlinkyBlue on UG. Yeah, that's right."

Any ideas?

this, forget whatever preferences you have for amps, the only amp that a customer should be allowed to buy is a line 6

also getting a tattoo and displaying your immense knowledge of music by showing all the Avenged Sevenfold songs you know couldn't hurt either

Ask him if he has family you could threaten if you don't get the job.

Why did you have to give him a CD of your recordings? I didn't know it was an audition for a music school or gig.

Because they are hiring in Pro Audio, genius.

Walk in on your first day cover in butter and flop your knob out on the managers desk, this will show confidence, and your boss like that in a man, he likes that a lot, he also likes his penis in a man... work hard now y'all...

I manage a Guitar Center and give interviews. I plan on giving one tonight. I don't think this is a coincidence, and this thread shows me you are unready for the interview and thus, unqualified to work here.

Serious post: Be relaxed, don't do anything stupid, make friends with the manager if you can, but don't try TOO hard. Polite conversation and answering all of his questions fully and to the best of your ability is all you need to do.

Fap before the interview so you'll be relaxed. What's the worst that could happen?

Look your best. Everyone knows that people want someone that's good-looking. Uggo's have 100% chance of more difficulty in job finding.

Aye, from what I've heard they're definitely not hiring people at Guitar Center for their guitar skills.

Or knowledge of guitars or guitar gear...

Doesn't necessarily mean you should have to send in a CD of you playing though. You don't have to be really good in order to know a lot.

@Slinky
Yeah, because I'm supposed to know that, right? If you are going to respond to simple questions in that manner, you really don't deserve the job.
