    Interview

    I was brought to the company by a friend, and the interview process is as follows. there are a total or 3 interviews one with another ASM, one with a store manager, and then a final interview with the district manager of the store. there are not alot of leaps or surprises to the interview. but do not go in just bolstering you have played games for years, even though that helps this is a company that is strictly in the buisness of making money so be sure you make them totally aware of any past sales skills yiu have

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate pay somewhat but i didnt find this out until after the fact

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop (West Chester, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the district manager and another store manager as they took turn asking me questions about different scenarios in a retail/sales business. We role played, and they gave great advice about how I could work my way up the ladder. I was actually interviewed at the same time as another applicant as they took turns asking us questions, which seemed odd at first but it was a good way to bounce ideas off of each other and get to know the roles of the job better.

    I called and asked if they were hiring, they had me come in and fill out a paper application. I called the next day, and they scheduled me for an interview with the store manager that day. Two days later, I had a phone interview with the regional manager, and that Monday, I met with him in person, where he formally offered me a pitiful amount of money and lousy hours, and I accepted.
