Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor

I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – I seriously cannot remember the exact questions. I know he asked various questions about how I would help a customer if they asked my advice on a particular game title or console.   Answer Question

Mobile, AL

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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

Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor
El Centro, CA

I applied 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 Question – 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
