    Interview Questions
    • over a year ago so don't remember much, just that it was with the director and manager of data management along with people from the group i was to work with closely. Most of the questions seemed to focus on ability to troubleshoot dynamic sql and interpersonal relationship building.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was short, just make sure you get what you want upfront. Like many other places, the raises are not great nor are they genuinely based on performance. Apparently it used to be that way but the long term people here have indicated that stopped about 2 years ago.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GameStop in August 2012.

    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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at GameStop in January 2011.

    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 Questions
    • Explain what is a web service, advantages of using ws, if I have debugged one and to explain how I could find errors in a existing one.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The salary was known before hand, so little negotiation room.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Interview process was pretty straight forward. Basic questions such as "How would you handle a customer complaint?" and "Can you tell me more about your job history with so and so?" Interview lasted roughly 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing complicated or unexpected. Questions about leadership and management behavioral experiences and examples. Most interesting question was about a favorite game and a time or example (roll-play) of how to sell it and about who to sell it to.   View Answer
