    Pros

    GameStop has a very friendly environment. Everyone helps each other with different tasks throughout the day such as stocking video games on the shelves or completing a sale.

    Cons

    I do not feel that there are any cons at working at GameStop. Everyday seemed better than the before because everyone worked together.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management, they are doing everything fine so far. Management was very nice and helpful whenever I talked to them.


  3. The fun of working with video games, the tedium of working retail.

    Pros

    The fun of working with video games, and associating with other video game fanatics

    Cons

    The tedium of working retail can be wearying, but no more than any other job. Selling memberships and plans and the various upgrades is annoying, but every retail job is required to do it, so whatever.

    Advice to Management

    Give workers more hours, especially if they're talented at selling memberships and upgrades.

    Pros

    High paced, fun environment. Recommending games you are passionate about. Informing customers of all the cool future releases firsthand. Helping out moms who have never been inside a video game store at Christmas time.

    Cons

    Not enough hours to complete all tasks.
