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 Management – Make 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
