I'm considering applying there when I turn 18 for Guitar Department sales and I was just wondering if anyone knew how it works. How is the interviewing process I heard you have to be good at the instrument of the department you work in. So would that mean I'd have to play for them? They work on commsion right? How much is it starting out hourly rate and commision percentage? Is there anything else I need to know? Thanks

Where I live it's really, REALLY hard to get a job there, and there's a lot of guitarists who want to.

So you do have to play for them and be really good?

No you don't have to play for them. Actually you don't even have to be good at it. There's a guy I work with at GC who can't play for ****, but he knows all about guitars and he can do all kinds of repairs, soldering and crap. You just have to know about guitars, you don't have to be good.

You do work on comission, and I've heard that the way they do it really sucks, but I don't know how it works.

That would be an awesome job to get. Im not sure about anything they require. You can always go up to the store and ask the manager.

Where i live (North Carolina) you can get a job when you're 15 but you can only work a certain number of hours

concerning GC i don't believe you have to be good but you need to know what you're talking about concerning guitars
