Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor
El Centro, CA

I applied through other source - interviewed at GameStop in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was told I will get a call in around a week or two it has barely been two days. He went straight into asking the question and explain what gamestop is all about. the thing they want a an employer to do is keep advertising like their power-up card to every customer over and over so if you tell them a similar past experience where you had to do it repetitive with out getting unmotivated because the past twenty people didn't buy it, this will be a plus.

Interview Question – The questions that he asked are common for example, Why do you want to work at gamestop? Do you have any past work experience?   Answer Question

Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor
Cartersville, GA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at GameStop in February 2013.

Interview Details – Apply and when you go in to talk to the manager, don't be shy, be upfront and confident. The interviews are usually two-parters, the first to determine your character, the second to determine what you know about video games.

Interview Question – "Who is your favorite developer?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation, the company is tightly wound and falls into chaos when things don't run exactly right.

Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor
Troy, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GameStop in July 2013.

Interview Details – After applying to multiple GameStops in my area I finally received a phone call for an interview approximately 2 months after I had applied. The important thing to remember is that this is a customer service and selling job; not just for game nerds. I was asked questions about my selling technique and if I knew about the upcoming games (which I was most excited about). Afterwards, he wanted me to call back tomorrow to schedule a 2nd interview with the store manager; but he said that I also had the job essentially.

Interview Question – Tell me about a game you would immediately pull off the shelves if you could. Then sell me that game.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – As much as I would love working at GameStop, I got catcalled and called names on the way to my car after the interview (I'm a female). I decided that it just wasn't worth it.

Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop.

Interview Details – I've been to this specific GameStop a few times to ask about hiring and to drop off two applications. The first time around, I called a couple of times to follow up, and eventually the manager simply told me they weren't looking to hire anymore. A couple of months later, I left them another application and got a call a week later about an interview.

The interview was with the manager, and it was more like a casual conversation about what GameStop does and what they're about along with simple questions about past experiences and consoles I'm into. He was definitely looking for how well I converse and how friendly I was, because customer service was a big chunk of the conversation. He also talked about what responsibilities a Game Advisor would need to take on. Before I knew it, the topic was on scheduling, and I didn't realize I'd been hired until he told me to come back next week to fill out paperwork.

Interview Question – Do you know why GameStop sells pre-owned games?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation. Starting pay is minimum wage to $8.

Game Advisor Interview

Game Advisor
Charlotte, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GameStop in September 2013.

Interview Details – 1 interview. Called me for an interview. I turned an application in to the GameStop that I wanted to work for in early August then I got a call back in early September for an interview at a different GameStop store. Hired me on the spot but to be part of the payroll I had to show-up on the following Sunday for orientation. If you didn't show up you would have to wait 30 days to get hired again.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult at all just basic retail questions. One questions I remember was, " if a supervisor told you to stop what your doing and do something for him." "What would you do".   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Only for seasonal with a chance of getting added on as part-time after the holiday season. Would have to work at two different GameStop's if the need persist. Minimum wage. Crazy hours like 9pm-2am on a Monday night. Bad employee benefits like 15% off games which if you do the math, games mostly sell for 60 dollars new so 15% of that would only be 9 dollars off.
