    Great for a retail veteran.

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Pros-Get to work in the gaming industry.
    -Selling games to people is as fun as you make it.
    -Fortunately I had a very supportive leadership team which respected employees needs and growth.
    -Medical benefits are very competitive for retail.
    -Yearly management meeting in Vegas, lots of contests as incentive and yearly bonus.
    -Performance Indicators are easily manageable and easy to translate to creating a guest experience rather than just driving a number.

    Cons-A lot of change happens in a short amount of time.
    -Leadership dictates the success of your business, if you are not confident in your supervisor you need to be or consider something else.
    -This company is driven by it's people at the DM level in too many ways, I was fortunate to have great DMs but a mediocre or bad DM would make this a difficult place to work as a manager.
    -Labor hours for non management are too few to operate during busy times, Game Stop is doing a great job of transitioning to customer a 1st model, but it is hard to do at the store level with out hours to support the number of employees needed to appease the demand.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the directives and intent of corporate policies are executed at the field level. Integrity, communication and commitment are lacking in the field when compared to corporate direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
