    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop in August 2015.

    Interview

    I attended a job fair Gamestop was having at a local comic book store. The guy took me in, asked me how my day was going, I said it was going well he asked me what hours would I be willing to work, looked at my job history, and asked how often do I go to their stores. We talked and he explained that its a laid back job, until you get to the fourth quarter of the year (with black Friday and the holiday shopping season).

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Grapevine, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    HR phone screen followed by a hiring manager phone interview followed by an on-site with 5 different people from the company. The process took around 3 months. Disappointed in the outcome in that I felt the interviews went extremely well and had really great synergy with the members, but was given a "copy and paste" rejection without specific feedback several days after my on-site.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Mount Dora, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called next day, interview set up for the following week. Arrived at store, waited for previous interviewee to finish with the store manager, the entire interview process at the store took over 2 hours from arrival to departure. I was read the entire interview from a sheet of paper, very robotic, manager didn't seem to care for personality. I was asked the basic management interview questions and then graded on my replies right in front of my face on the paper.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    The first Game Stop interview I had was in the back of the store with the store manager, the interview was pleasant and a week later I was called back for a second interview and this time the District Manager was present and the interview went well. They informed me to call back in a week for an answer, I called and the store manager told me "The DM hasn't given me an answer" and after a month he simply told me "The person that was going to quit stayed and there's no positions available". The second store I applied to was a walk-in interview with the Store Manager, the interview took place next door (Panda Express) and the SM even saved my phone number on his mobile phone to immediately give me a position, never heard back from that store. I've gone back to those two stores and they've hired if I may say, girls whom society would label as "Attractive" and who didn't have a clue about games or any gaming consoles. To be honest, I'm contemplating of giving it another shot to try to work for this company due to the fact that I love video games in general.

    Interview

    Basic interview questions. They asked when I would be available to work and why I would want to work at Gamestop. The interview process was fairly quick. If you have experience interviewing nothing should be too much of a surprise.
