I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Long & McQuade (Richmond, BC) in May 2021

Interview

There were two interviews. There was an initial prescreening with the regional manager, where she asked to hear more about my background/experience and asked a few situational questions. Then there was a follow-up interview with the regional manager that was more casual and conversational, and we talked more in specifics regarding wages, scheduling, etc.

Interview

There are 2 in-person interviews. The questions they will ask you are very standard and easy to prepare for - pretty much any question you can find if you google "common job interview questions" will be asked. Of course they will ask about your musical background as well. I would strongly recommend spending time in the store and getting to know the employees before finishing your interview process if you haven't already. I would argue that the bigger part of the interview is to gage your personality to see if you're going to fit in and work well with your potential coworkers. You can be qualified as can be, but if the interviewers has any reasonable doubt that you may not mesh well with the group, nothing else really matters.

Interview Questions
  • A customer comes in with a broken guitar amplifier that is a few months out of warranty. They are upset and demanding that we fix their amp for free, and your managers are not in the building to help you out. What do you do?

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Long & McQuade (Calgary, AB) in Jun 2017

Interview

Submitted resume and online application and received an email within minutes to come in for an interview. First interview was very basic questions and mostly a way to meet them. Was invited back for a second interview to ask more detailed questions about product knowledge. I was disappointed to discover that they basically don't offer any training and rely on you to train yourself on your own time off the clock. Considering the pay is quite low, I didn't really consider this to be a real position to even consider. Their three day training in Ontario was basically designed to train you on their POS system. It's dissapointing that this company wouldn't even email me back after two group interviews. They basically handled it like a high school breakup in which they simply stopped talking to the other person. Very unprofessional.

Interview Questions
  • What kind of electric guitars types are there? What is the difference between single foil and humbuckers? What's the difference an amp and a head?

Interview

Be prepared for at least 3 interviews. Be sure you are attractive as they initially rate you on appearance. Chances are if are older, obese, ugly, they will not hire you. Dress sharp and if you are a woman, you better wear a dress with pantyhose and shoulders covered and closed-toe shoes, no matter how hot the day is. They are very picky on their dress code. Guys, be sure to have short hair neatly styled, wear a suit and tie.
