Guitar Center Reality

As a former GC employee, take it from me as a consistently top producer, GC sucks on many levels! They are the WALMART of music stores. They have virtually destroyed most of the family owned stores intentionally. The typical corporate mentality in every regard, especially towards their employees. which they treat like crap and expect way too much for too little in return. Total incompetent, uncaring, no people skills managers. Revolving door employee mentality. They know every kid would love to work there, so minimum wage never changes, no raises, incentives period,(They actually decreased commission rates recently) regardless of tenure, experience and dedicated hard work. Check out the class-action lawsuit they offered to settle for 3.1 million dollars for not paying due wages to their already starving, underpaid employee's. Very click orientated, must kiss the lame managers butt, or be outed, regardless of performance. As far as the customers...They will "steal" your used gear for trade, very misleading (bordering illegal) deceptive advertising. I could go-on-and forever. BTW this also applies to Musicians Friend, also Guitar Center! DO yourself and Community a favor...Please if at all possible buy from your local (or drive a little) family store, in most cases you get just as good or better of a deal, and better service and your money will be better invested!
