Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Big Spring, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at GameStop.

Interview Details – During certain times of the year, mainly holiday, or in the event of someone leaving the company for X,Y,Z reason are the best times to try to get hired at your local Gamestop. Interviews are usually 20-60 mins depending on the management who's doing the interviews. I was able to be referred via taking a college course with the manager of my local Gamestop and through social networking landed an interview within a week of putting in my application.

Interview Question – Be ready for anything as this depends very much so on the hiring manager.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was hired on as a Game Advisor. Negotiation phase was more of a large exhange of information as far as the typical on-boarding process. You're basically informed of your expected amount of hours to recieve, or simply shown the schedules, and your payrate. Overall standard stuff.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at GameStop in October 2009.

Interview Details – Getting an interview at the store level requires either a lot of luck, or knowing someone who works there. With 5 to 10 employees on payroll at a time, stores have little wiggle room to higher new people. That being said, on the average week 15-30 people apply for a job. Good luck!

Interview Question – The interview is being done by an overworked schlub who doesn't feel valued by their boss. Dress nice, answer honestly, and don't be an idiot. You probably won't get the job though, unless you are over-qualified. Most people have a bachelors degree and are essentially working the McDonald's of video game retail. Seriously, I once worked in a retail store with a man with his masters degree in Genetics... everyone seems to be overqualified for their jobs these days.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating.

Assistant Store Manager
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in April 2011.

Interview Details – One interview, sit down with district manager in mall location. Questions focused on former team building and program selling. Big plus if your previous company was membership based, as the Gamestop experience requires lots of club selling with power up rewards.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, but don't expect to go in talking about video games.   Answer Question

Assistant Store Manager
Lansing, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in October 2008.

Interview Details – Unfortunately any position below SM is usually done by the SM, and most of them have no idea what they are doing. By being well dressed, well spoken and knowledgeable and friendly, you already stand out among the hundreds of dumb people that apply each year.

Interview Question – If you were a kitchen appliance, what would you be and why?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None, they make an offer, take it or leave it.
