Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at GameStop (Rochester, NY).

Interview

In person interview with either the Senior Game Advisor or Assistant Store Manager followed by an interview with the Store Manager. If you make it past him or her, they will sometimes bring you in to have you meet with the District Manager. Sometimes they'll ask you to sell them on a game you don't like to test your sales ability, but only if you have a lack of experience.

Interview Questions

  • What is your least favorite game? Can you sell me a copy of it?   Answer Question

Negotiation

None. Pay is based on experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    Initially applied for position through the GameStop website. An area store manager called me the next day for an official interview. I went into the local store and the interview took place in the stock room. They asked me about my previous work experience, why this qualified me to be a leader, my education history, my gaming experience and then my favorite and least favorite game. This store manager okay-ed me and scheduled an interview with the district manager. I met with the district manager 3 days later. The interview was essentially the same except the district manager had me pick my 3 least favorite games and then sell them to him. Very easy interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe you 3 least favorite video games of all time. Now sell them to me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They offered me $11 an hour and said they couldn't go any higher.

    I was promoted internally. I did have to have a face to face interview with the district manager. After the interview, I was promoted the following week.
