    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GameStop (Daytona Beach, FL).

    Interview

    Submitted application, followed-up one week later in person with resume for seasonal position. Interview within a week of follow-up, very straightforward and relaxed. Called to thank the manager for his time and consideration the day after. Had an offer in seven days, which I accepted. Ended up staying on permanently after season was up -- this seems like the best bet for this position.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    I handed in an application in person at the store, and a few days later the manager called me back to set up an interview. It was pretty casual, only took about 20 minutes, and none of the questions were hard or unexpected - mostly very basic stuff, and then some questions about your interest/knowledge in games.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at GameStop (Richmond, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed at a job fair. The interview took place in a restaurant adjacent to the game stop. I waited around for a while to be called. When called, I was walked over to a table where the interview took place. My interview was conducted by the regional director and the manager of one of my local stores. The interview was short, with no unusual or even game-related questions. The interviewers seemed to make up their mind very quickly on whether they wanted to hire me or not.

    It was pretty fun. It felt more like a conversation and not an interview. The second interview felt more like I was going into a business setting and not retail.
