High maintenance, Stressful, Occasionally enjoyable?
Senior Guest Advisor (Current Employee) – Waco, TX – November 7, 2016
The most enjoyable part of my job is engaging, fun customers who love talking passionately about their interests in upcoming games! My co-workers are all fun loving guys who always get the job done, and do their jobs well. The job in itself is enjoyable. I've learned many things in my time at GameStop, such as valuable customer service experience, becoming a quick learner, and how to handle stressful situations! A typical day at work for me includes getting incoming inventory taken in, dealing with customers, cash handling, answering the phones, organizing, re-organizing, and dealing with solving customers' problems. The managers are pleasant to work with and do their jobs well. The district manager is a different story, he hinders our ability to do our jobs effectively and knows very little about the work we do. The toughest part of my job is keeping up with his demands of how our store must look, operate, and function in general. The Pros far outweigh the Cons the longer you stay at the company, and the benefits provided eventually lose their charm.
Sometimes get free stuff, fun customers, employee discount
Stressful, poor upper management, low pay
