Overall, Gamestop provides a sales environment where its employees and customers can interact on a common level. Through the sales of video games and related products, employees are involved on multiple levels of daily business dealings. From customer interaction to inventory control, employees are given a glimpse into multiple aspects of the business. Benefits were present for employees if needed, but should an employee need them, they pay a premium for benefits such as healthcare.
However, advancing from within is often very hard depending on circumstance and specific region. The region that I worked in promoted any female over male just based on gender, and unqualified people were promoted to running stores that they overall could not handle.
Gamestop taught me a lot in terms of running an active business, and it overall provided me with a lot of experience that I have applied to future endeavors.
