    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at GameStop in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I've been through some tough interviews with some great companies, so I do not mind a grilling, hard interview. What GameStop does is simply annoying. The interview will take place in a locked janitor's closet, and you will be interviewed by a geeky hipster elitist. This interview will include questions regarding your video game and technology interests, which I can understand. This is a gaming sales company after all. If you respond with any video games that are mainstream popular you will be snickered at and mocked with words like SUB PAR or MEDIOCRE. The interview is a rare experience to say the least

    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied 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
