Game Advisor Interview

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

I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at GameStop in September 2012.

Interview Details

One interview and you just have to be up-standing and look them in the eye with confidence. They ask you questions on your favorite games and may ask you to sell them a paperclip.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
Know that 7.25 is base pay for a Game Adviser but in VERY particular circumstances you could get a few extra dimes. Management will be 9.00-10.00 for a keyholder but more for an Assistant manager.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at GameStop in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Seems based on familiar faces. Best chance on getting interest is by constantly being around the location. Actual interviews ask common questions like "Why do you want to work at GameStop?" The answer is NOT "Because I like games" and more customer service related issues.

    Interview Questions
    • What actions would you take if a disgruntled customer became belligerent and dangerous in your store?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    GameStop gives what they want to, no negotiations for Part-Time employees.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GameStop in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were two separate interviews. Both were the same questions. The interviews began very simply as a personality assessment. They asked strength and weaknesses. I was then asked what games I was excited that were coming out and why. The last portion of the interview I was asked to sell the interviewer their pen. I was notified within a week or so after the second interview that I got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest question I came across was selling the pen. It gets you to think on your feet and try to think outside the box.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    GameStop has a surprisingly lengthy interview process Assistant Manager, Store Manager, District Manager, and then Regional. I had my first interview with the Assistant Manager. He was polite and informative and told me about the "Cycle of Gaming" and their changing business outlook. The interview was about 20 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • I suppose the most difficult question asked was a typical interview question: To explain a time you had had difficulty or difference of opinion with a manager.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at GameStop in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I didn't really get much of an "interview". My boss is very good friends with one of my close friends and had asked him to find people for him. He asked my friend if I was an okay person and if I would screw him over. Then he proceeded to ask me what my favorite game was, and why. When I told him that I travel across the country to compete in video game tournaments he simply said "oh, so you're in the scene?" he then hired me on the spot.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate my pay. I asked for something higher than my previous job, and I received a whole dollar more. It's not A LOT, but it's something.
