Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomington, IL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomington, IL
Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GameStop in September 2014.

Interview Details

First interview with store manager. Went off a small workbook with multiple follow up questions. I often answered a large portion of the follow ups with my initial answer. Mostly about management experience, but in my case, having none, used times that I took an authoritative role. Mostly a common retail interview with a lot of supervisor questions. He wrote a lot and said I gave good answers.
Second interview was supposed to be a phone interview with another manager from the same area. Ended up as an in person interview because I worked I the same building as that Gamestop, so it was much easier to meet in person. In this interview, he ran out of questions because I answered then so fully again. Asked if I didn't get the AM if he could hire me to work 10 hours a week on my days off for my current job.

Didn't get the job, but he said I was a top contender.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at GameStop in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a different position than the one I was highered for in early July, received initial call back 2 weeks later for over the phone interview and face to face scheduling aprox a week later. Brought paper copy of Resume on interview day, dressed in shirt, tie and slacks. Interviewer was upfront and said I was over qualified for the position, but wanted to place me into a a different position. Questions were straightforward for a retail position: customer service, employee relations, theft etc. At the end of the interview I was told I was being considered for a different position and I would receive a call back. 1 hr later I received a call back and did the second interview the same afternoon. I walked in and was told that I had the job if I wanted it. Very straightforward and honest very good interview process.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    I had walked in and simply asked if they were hiring. I was just lucky enough to be taken in because I had helped a customer pick out a game as well as make sure it could run on their pc. After turning in my application, I was called in a few days later and then became an associate.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They told me how much they would bring me on for and I accepted. There was no negotiations because they have set wages for all the employees unless they're salaried managers.

    Typical one on one interview process. I interviewed with the district manager, and the process lasted for about an hour. I don't think it was challenging.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at GameStop in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Went to the store and was told to wait a couple minutes before being brought into the back room to be interviewed by two men. One was manager and they went back and forth asking me general interview questions as well as specific video game questions. Pretty easy interview, straight forward. Took about 20-25 minutes however they never called me after the interview.
