Interview Details – The entire process consisted of 3 phone calls and one personal interview. The first interview focused on my experience and expertise in the area. The following calls had many software related problems, apparently many candidates where unable to solve basic programming questions. The last interview was much more technical and consisted on explaining how to solve several problems that the company had at the time. Also some general computer science concepts and basic problems were thrown in between keeping me on my toes.

Interview Details – Met with manager for truly wonderful interview. Very informative. Sounds like a wonderful team who is planning big things. Great benefits and work environment. Unfortunately, not much opportunity or emphasis on work-life balance. Location too far from me for reasonable commute and no opportunity to work from home or flex schedule. Fabulous manager and team, though! Would definitely consider if closer to my home.

Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at GameStop in June 2010.
Interview Details – I was called in to interview at the Irving mall location. I live in Fort Worth and applied for Assistant Manager locally at three locations. I drive all the way to Irving from Fort Worth which is an hour, one way in traffic. Upon my arrival I had to fill out the paper application, and then I was directed toward two gentlemen in the food court. I walked up and neither of them put out their hands to introduce themselves, so I did. They were both dressed very casually and seemed as though they were preoccupied and were not paying attention to the answers to their qusetions. It felt like a waste of time during the "interview" and especially when it ended and I asked about the position I applied for and what to expect, when they told me that they put people where they see a fit (which makes sense), but that they had so many people to talk to that I may not hear anything back for two weeks, if I am considered. I haven't ever felt that uncomfortable in an interview.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in April 2009.
Interview Details – Walked in and applied in person. Store manager asked for me to call back after their inventory was completed. Called back the following Monday and we set up an in person interview for the next day. They were ready for me when I arrived which was nice, and the interview was semi-laid back. I was offered a job for part-time in the evenings. The pay's not great, but if you want to work somewhere to expand your knowledge of video games, it can be a fun place to work.
