I was so excited to work for GameStop! Who wouldn't be? Unfortunately, it wasn't that great.
I loved my co-workers, but sadly you don't get to work with others very often due to lack of hours provided to the stores. Often times you are alone, there is a large amount of work to do and no real support provided.
They expect you to be pushy. Its bad enough to demand that we push products that aren't always right for that person but there was no reward if you succeeded. No commission, no raises, no incentives of any kind, but hey you might not get fired this week!
There are constant (often last minute) conference calls that you're expected to be on no matter what... SO now you have to do inventory, re-arrange the store (probably for the 2nd or 3rd time this week), handle all in-store customers and phone calls, review security footage, and be on a conference call all while being the only one there.
Co-workers are great when you get to work with them, employee discount is helpful with lack of pay
Only managers get hours, way overworked for the pay, no raises or incentives for staff
