    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 interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at GameStop in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Turned in paper application in store and received a call a few days later to come in for an interview. I arrived at the store for the interview and there were 3 other candidates there to be interviewed as well. We were taken to the back for one on one interviews with the store manager. Was asked about general game knowledge including the type of games I'm familiar with as well as the systems I've used. Was also asked why I wanted to work there and where I saw myself in 5 years.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at GameStop in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    I've interviewed with 3 or 4 different Gamestops throughout my career with them, across multiple cities and states. The process is generally the same, and always quite painless. Very standard hiring process - submit application, callbacks, and 1-2 interviews. They try to get people who are interested in their industry if possible.

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.
