    Pros

    If your a gamer the discount is ok. Good for high School kids part time work. hard to said to many nice things sorry

    Cons

    Atlanta East never promotes from within. To much high presure for Subs and Reserves DM's should not talk about other Managers on the sales floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Atlanta East needs a new leader.

    Pros

    Few. If you are a gamer, then the checkout policy and the employee discount policy are nice. Access to industry news and information is also good.

    Cons

    Gamestop fundamentally fails to understand either work/life balance or the concept of employee safety. In most stores, employees spend large amounts of time working alone in a business that consistently runs a high risk of robbery and burglary. The staffing model is such that Store Managers must constantly be at work, since corporate does not allocate enough payroll to the stores to provide proper staffing. I don't know how Gamestop avoids running afoul of federal overtime guidelines, since they have salaried managers working more than half of their time in non-management tasks.
