    I interviewed in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward. I received a call from the manager after having asked him a few days earlier. So I filled out an application and went into the back room for the interview. It lasted only a few minutes, I shook the man's hand and that was that. Apparently they weren't currently hiring, but kept my application on file.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    GameStop has a surprisingly lengthy interview process Assistant Manager, Store Manager, District Manager, and then Regional. I had my first interview with the Assistant Manager. He was polite and informative and told me about the "Cycle of Gaming" and their changing business outlook. The interview was about 20 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • I suppose the most difficult question asked was a typical interview question: To explain a time you had had difficulty or difference of opinion with a manager.   View Answer

    I interviewed through other source - interviewed at GameStop in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was told I will get a call in around a week or two it has barely been two days. He went straight into asking the question and explain what gamestop is all about. the thing they want a an employer to do is keep advertising like their power-up card to every customer over and over so if you tell them a similar past experience where you had to do it repetitive with out getting unmotivated because the past twenty people didn't buy it, this will be a plus.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions that he asked are common for example, Why do you want to work at gamestop? Do you have any past work experience?   Answer Question

    I turned in my application then after about two weeks got a call for an interview. The interview questions were pretty basic but most of them were about the company and their policies.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with the District Sales Manager. The first interview was a group interview. This was the easier interview. The second interview was a face to face interview that was more arduous. He gave every indication that he would offer the entry level Game Advisor position to me after the second interview, but he never made any offer. He gave the usual "we want to go in a different direction" email. My gripe is that why he scheduled the second interview if he had no intention of hiring me in the first place. He also went on vacation after the second interview. That was unprofessional because he could have at least given a response prior to going on vacation instead of making me wait like a child for a prolonged period of time. He misled me into thinking I had the job, but I had my hopes up for nothing. Regardless of how passionate I was about games and sales, it was unlikely he would have hired me. I asked him why he refused to hire me, but I received no response. I was also told to reapply in 90 days. Even if I reapplied in 90 days, I doubt he would have offered me the job. But I probably won't reapply in 90 days. How would waiting 90 days improve my chances of securing the job? Am I magically more qualified for the job by waiting 90 days? If anyone is interviewing at GameStop, then you have to hope you have a helpful district manager who is willing to give you the job. I read anecdotes about how easy it is to get a job at GameStop (you only need a pulse), but that is only true if you are interviewed by someone who wants to hire you. Education won't help you. I had two BA degrees, but the district manager was not interested in hiring me. Furthermore, good luck to anyone who interviews.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at GameStop in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I heard about a Job fair these guys were having, and so I made it a point to go. My friend came with me and we planned all week for it; Got our suits drycleaned, bought new clothes, the whole nine. They were having interviews on the spot, and I figured my best chance would be to stand out from the crowd. We got there about 30 minutes early, before the rush of hopefuls, and at that time, only a few people were there. Me and my friend walked to the nearest available table to the store and sat, and waited. The managers and associates who came in seemed pretty personable and charismatic. After 9, the interviews began, and I followed an associate named Chris to the table.

    He asked me a few straightforward, basic questions just to get an idea of who I was, and I enjoyed that. The interview was relatively short, as interviews go, but it felt satisfying due to the nature of the queries that were asked. They weren't hard, and there were no trick questions. I came away from the interview in a very positive mood.

    From prepping to the event itself, I'd say this was a good experience overall.
