    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GameStop (Troy, AL).

    Interview

    Interview was relaxed and informal. It was more conversational than Q/A. The manager that was interviewing was very nice and put the applicant at ease. I participated in a one-on-one interview where only a few questions were asked. My interviewer appreciated tenacity and an almost aggressive method of job hunting. This company seems to value a go-getter.

    Store Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    You will go into the back room of the store and sit with the district manager. Right off the bat, the district manager already knows going into the interview if they want you or not. (at least mine did.) During an interview from before, did not ask a question and just told me why I would or would not get the job. My particular district manager was unprofessional and often rude. Glad to say that he does not work for the company anymore.

    It was pretty fun. It felt more like a conversation and not an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GameStop (Pensacola, FL).

    Interview

    The interview process for the Assistant Store Manager position was simple. It involved an initial interview with the Store Manager that was very by-the-book and focused specifically on previous experience with questions generally expecting to be answered in the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format. The interview lasted approximately one hour. A follow-up interview with the District Manager was conducted the next day. This interview was more casual and seemed to focus on the manner in which I responded as opposed to what I was actually saying. This interview lasted about 30-45 minutes.
