      Pros

      Around musical instruments - and other musicians Great if you like minimum wage.

      Cons

      Horrible management and head office owners don't respect labor laws. Terrible pay, they make you work long hours often unpaid after store closed. Must work weekends. They often give staff more responsibilities with no title or pay increase. Not a good job for adults with financial responsibilities.

      Pros

      The employees really do matter. Are you a musician with a special talent for sales or for teaching? This is the place for you

      Cons

      The work schedule can change quickly depending on new music students or unforeseen events. As an employee, you are expected to arrange your life accordingly, sometimes with little or no warning.
