It was a very easy laid back interview with the store manager and another associate. I discussed why I wasted to work there (part-time) and my future goals which flowed into me talking about my music knowledge. It is also retail so I also gave examples and talked about customer service and sales. I did tell them I was aware of the "bad rap" that guitar center has but that I had always had a positive experience as a customer in their store. The manager was well aware of the reputation and explained how he wanted the store and company presented to customers.
I applied on line, got a call the next day to set up an interview for tomorrow, interviewed -about 35 minutes and was called an hour later with an offer.

Yes of course, if that were a prerequisite to work there, is that really somewhere you'd want to work at in the first place?

No, there is no drug screen. If there was, they probably wouldn't have any workers
