Gamestop is fun, and its an easy job. It's a good for a first job, but i wouldn't recommend it to someone who is looking for a career. I have a lot of job and store manger experience. So I am comfortable with most retail jobs, this job is stupid easy but they make it stupid complicated, stressful and frustrating for no reason. If you want a job that will provide training this ain't it especially for managers, there are many things they expect you to do but never teach you operationally like how to open and close, the store and inventory type tasks which are usually done every day of every week except weekends. The pay is abysmal compared to many other companies. You CANNOT sustain an adult lifestyle with this job, you will need another even at full time. if you're a woman get ready for being treated like you're incompetent or deal with blatant harassment from co workers and customers because you don't have a sick neck beard, and the all around belief that girls aren't real "gamers" nonsense. They want to change the culture of gamestop but they are doing it all wrong.
Why do you want to work at Gamestop? What do you know about the services that we offer (Power Up Rewards, Game Play Guarantee, Product Replacement Plan, Trade Program)? Have you opened and closed a retail location and been responsible for having keys? Have you handled cash and created a daily deposit before? Have you ever had high sales goals before and what was your experience with that?
When you get hired they tell you you’ll get around 25 hours a week and then after a couple of weeks of getting 4 hours a week they tell you that there’s actually a corporate policy that limits Game Advisors to 4 hours a week.
Will previous retail gaming experience play a factor in the starting pay rate?
None of your previous experience will matter to gamestop. As long as you are able to breath and seem that you can talk to people you will start out at min wage regardless.
They hired me as assistant manager, refused to train me on how to operate their store beyond telling me which keys were for what door, scheduled as the sole person in the store 100% of the time, ridiculed for every question I had on how to do anything, then they fired me for "not learning fast enough".
I got a call 1 week after an application and voicemail said if I was still interested. I called back immediately and was just told to go in and fill paperwork. Came in wearing band tees and jacket as I was at band practice.
2nd rehire was constantly coming in and expressing that I knew the Register system and after multiple visit, I was rehired again, on the spot with no interview. And this was in 2 separate states.
GameStop never interviewed me both times. and I was with the company for 5–6 years total.
I think, in my store at least there is a general "who cares" attitude. Management needs to be more concerned about their employees I doubt this is going to happen.
