    Game Advisor Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    I initially had a phone interview that was very short and asked the standard phone interview questions one would expect. It was clear the individual was reading from a script and was not at all engaged or interested. At the conclusion of the phone interview, I was immediately invited in for a face-to-face interview.

    I arrived at the corporate headquarters a few days later and met with an individual from their marketing department. She started the interview with reviewing the basics of what the job would require and its goals and asked if I had any questions about the job duties. I said I did not and that it was all quite clear. I didn't go into the in-depth questions I had prepared as I assumed the interview was just getting started. To my surprise, she began to thank me for coming in and ending the meeting before any questions were asked regarding my experience, skill set, goals, and other standard interview questions. I then proceeded to ask my questions and relate how my experience, education, etc. had prepared me for such a position, i.e., the information someone conducting an interview should want to know.

    I was told while I was leaving that an individual from their HR department would be contacting me to follow up by the end of the week or the following Monday. I did not receive a call within that time frame but waited a little while longer before reaching out again. Once I did send an email as a follow up, I was responded to with a simple stock rejection email. All in all, this was a very disappointing process. From two uninterested interviewers to a lack of follow-through on what I was told would be done, I was very let down with my interview process with GameStop.

    Game Advisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GameStop in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about a month. I initially called and asked if they were hiring for the holiday season. The Assistant Manager told me they were and I should submit my application. So being persistent, I submitted both my resume along with my application the next day. The Store Manager said he would give me a call back in a week to set up an interview. 2 weeks later, after his week long vacation and inability to follow up, never called me back so I went up to the store to see what the deal was. I had to wait an hour just to talk to him and I found out they lost my application and I had to fill out another one (ugh). I did so and he told me to come in the next week for an interview. So the 3rd week, I came in 15 minutes earlier and the Store Manager told me he forgot about my interview. So I interviewed with the Assistant Manager and gave up on them immediately afterwards because of their incompetence and unprofessional.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    You are interviewed by the store manager first and then district manager. If you are lucky, you get an interview with the district manager depending if they are a good one. The hiring process is fairly easy and traditional sometimes, starting with a phone call to come in for the face to face. This is for management positions only, for partime game advisors theres a group interview sometimes.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GameStop in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview with store manager. Went off a small workbook with multiple follow up questions. I often answered a large portion of the follow ups with my initial answer. Mostly about management experience, but in my case, having none, used times that I took an authoritative role. Mostly a common retail interview with a lot of supervisor questions. He wrote a lot and said I gave good answers.
    Second interview was supposed to be a phone interview with another manager from the same area. Ended up as an in person interview because I worked I the same building as that Gamestop, so it was much easier to meet in person. In this interview, he ran out of questions because I answered then so fully again. Asked if I didn't get the AM if he could hire me to work 10 hours a week on my days off for my current job.

    Didn't get the job, but he said I was a top contender.
