All this minimum wage talk seems a bit off topic of people who wanted to get a job at this company.

For those still looking at possibly working at your local Gamestop ask yourself, will you base YOUR decision on what someone else said? Personally I see all this negativity for GS, but who knows maybe its the environment YOU would like to work in. Okay maybe I'm in Canada and we're so called rumored to be overly polite... But what I mean is I'm looking into getting a job at EBGames/Gamestop myself no luck yet, but as an individual who likes to sell items I'm not giving up. If I try the job and hate it, I'll try and leave on a good note and use that experience into finding a new better job. Well that's just my nickel put in the pot for those who actually look at working at GS/EBG in a positive light, if you can get the job and love it you're lucky others just don't like it and leave on a less positive note which is bad... Keeping a good contact will always help land you another job because you'll have a source to hopefully say something positive about you.

Just like anything though, you won't know if you truly like something till you try it. And if you are lucky enough to get the job and don't like it well, don't try and make other people hate it in spite of the company that's just rude. Get chance and luck, game on folks.

If you REALLY want to get a job, dress professionally. Men, tuck in your shirts, wear slacks, dress shoes. Women, don't saturate your face with make-up, knee length skirt or slacks, small heels (NO STILETTOS).

Also, EYE CONTACT!! Be knowledgeable about games and sales. SMILE! Don't smoke before you go in for an interview (no one likes the smell of cigarettes) but also don't soak yourself with cologne or perfume.

Call a few days after you put in your application to show initiative and get to know the store manager. GameStop is all about who you know.

Wow i stumbled upon this looking up some facts about gamestop (number of stores etc) due to a serious case of no life and realized i posted on here haha.

But hey, It's been six months apparently since my last post..

So I feel as though an update is far over due haha.

3 months after I started, I was promoted to SGA. I have been SGA obviously for 3 months now. I'm being promoted to ASM as of this Sunday. Haha, it's safe to say i have learned the system through and through. I don't think I have gone a single day as SGA without getting at-least 2 PUR sign ups/renewals and let me just say for the location we are in (border of ghetto..) that is a feat!.. Lima no but seriously, I have been in the top 5 in my district every week/month consecutively since my promotion. I'm averaging 35-45% in res, 15% in PUR, 30% in GPG, and my upt is right around 1.80-1.95.

If you happen to read this maybe we can exchange strategies. I have realized that something I may think is the best approach in the world, somebody else has found a way to boost it up that much more:]

Hey, I am looking for applying for a job at the local GameStop down the road and was searching on the GameStop career webpage and was confused on how to apply to that specific store. They are currently hiring and I currently need a decent job. Any advice and how to navigate ther're website?

I am currently in the process of interviewing for the Store Manager position with Game Stop. After reading the reviews I feel like a lot of people don't understand how a business actually functions. No business owner creates a business with the sole purpose to make their employees happy. When they start a business they do it because they believe they have what it takes to make money. Every GameStop I have ever shopped with is always a tiny store. What do you expect out of Game Stop? Most companies by minimum wage or maybe a little better. From reading these posts it seems most employees are young and in school or people who had no previous experience in retail. I was told one of the best Game Stops in the company brings in about 40,000 a week. I currently work for a company that brings in 100,000 plus a week and we pay our cashiers 8 an hour. If a store brings in 40,000 a week on average that would be 160,000 a month, then you must take away the costs to run the business (rent, lights, employee wages, and cost of merchandise) If these small stores pay for more per hour for game advisors then instead of having 10 people they will have to down size to 5. Gamestop is in business to make money. If you start your own company and have the sole goal of taking care of your employees then great but your business won't last long. Thank you though for the associates that gave informative feedback on this company. If you want to complain about a company make it constructive if all you say is you get treated like crap and don't pay enough that tells me your a whiner and a quitter.

I took the initiative to call my local store during the holiday season and I scheduled an one to one interview with the manager. I was hired on as a seasonal but so far, it been a pretty good job because my coworkers are friendly and nice to work with and I even met the district mananger and regional manager that moved up from being game advisors which was a nice change from constantly meeting managers that were hired externally so they never had any experience from the company. They were also very friendly as well which is a nice change from managers that felt they were too entitled to answer your questions. I even had jobs, when I never even saw my district manager or regional manager, but your were supposed to follow their directions. Please be aware that this is a retail job and it all depends on your store, fellow employees, and management, if your work time will be an enjoyable experience. If you have a horrible manager and coworkers than your work at any position is going to be miserable. However, so far this has been the best retail job that I had. I told the manager my interest in moving up to management and instead of them ignoring my request or finding excuses to cut my hours or ignore my existence altogether like previous retail jobs; instead they actually been giving me any available shifts and helping me to learn what I need, to move up to keyholder and eventually into an assistant manager role. My advice is to take the initiative to make yourself heard and if they don't listen than don't waste your time with them. Unfortunately in this enconomy the retail jobs are more available than the office or corporate jobs so if you need to settle to make ends meet than, go for the job that you enjoy rather than just the paycheck. I also work in a state where minimal wage is going to increase too.
