Senior Game Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at GameStop in August 2013.
Interview Details – Hiring and interview was great. I really liked the manger. We just sat and talked. It didn't really feel like an interview which is what I liked. Hiring took a little while because of back ground check. After that it went fairly smoothly.
Game Advisor Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in May 2012.
Interview Details – It took several days to be contacted by phone. however after the second interview, i wasn't called in and it seemed like a waste of time when I could have hunted elsewhere
Interview Question – Where do you believe you'll fit in here? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at GameStop in May 2012.
Interview Details – I applied directly through the store before the summer. It's best to apply before the summer starts because it's a popular job with students. I'm a regular customer, so I was able to get an interview easily. I came in for an interview and was taken to the storage area/break room. The manager asked me about my school background and what video games I liked to play. Other than saying that I need to be more energetic, he seemed happy with me as a new employee.
Interview Question – It was pretty straightforward. Nothing unexpected. Where are you from? What games do you play? Where do you go to school? When are you available to work? Answer Question
Sales Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at GameStop in February 2014.
Interview Details – I've been through some tough interviews with some great companies, so I do not mind a grilling, hard interview. What GameStop does is simply annoying. The interview will take place in a locked janitor's closet, and you will be interviewed by a geeky hipster elitist. This interview will include questions regarding your video game and technology interests, which I can understand. This is a gaming sales company after all. If you respond with any video games that are mainstream popular you will be snickered at and mocked with words like SUB PAR or MEDIOCRE. The interview is a rare experience to say the least
Interview Question – Name your top 5 favorite tv shows and why? Answer Question
Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at GameStop in July 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online for a different position than the one I was highered for in early July, received initial call back 2 weeks later for over the phone interview and face to face scheduling aprox a week later. Brought paper copy of Resume on interview day, dressed in shirt, tie and slacks. Interviewer was upfront and said I was over qualified for the position, but wanted to place me into a a different position. Questions were straightforward for a retail position: customer service, employee relations, theft etc. At the end of the interview I was told I was being considered for a different position and I would receive a call back. 1 hr later I received a call back and did the second interview the same afternoon. I walked in and was told that I had the job if I wanted it. Very straightforward and honest very good interview process.
Interview Question – What was your favorite subject in school. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Were up front about minimum they could offer me, but indicated potential higher wage. Actual Negotiation occurs between Division Manager and HR. The more qualified you are the higher wage you will get.
Game Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at GameStop.
Interview Details – Was pretty simple. Questions like "When are people more likely to make decisions?" or "What's your reason to want to work here?" They're all straight forward. If you don't know the answer, it's fine. Chances are, not knowing the answer and admitting you don't is fine since you'll learn granted you're hired. Other questions were things like what do you do in spare time, where do you go to school, are you planning to go to college if you aren't already in college, etc. It's a simple interview. Nothing to really be afraid of. The hiring manager at the GameStop I work at was pretty chill. Only downfall was that HR was pretty bad to work with since I was still a minor when I was hired so they took forever to add me into GameStop's employee list. As someone whose never had a job before, I'm actually glad this is my first job. It's a lot of fun and quite a good start.
Negotiation Details – Just have good social skills. It really isn't that difficult to get hired at GS. Be yourself, don't be afraid to admit if you don't know something, but be willing to learn more if you're interested.
Game Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at GameStop in May 2014.
Interview Details – If you want this job, SHOW IT! Call and ask for a manager and then come in person with a resume. Showing persistence is Key! Be sure to emphasize your sales background, it's all about getting the numbers and selling memberships. Knowing about video games is a plus but not required

Senior Game Advisor Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at GameStop
Interview Details – I was brought to the company by a friend, and the interview process is as follows. there are a total or 3 interviews one with another ASM, one with a store manager, and then a final interview with the district manager of the store. there are not alot of leaps or surprises to the interview. but do not go in just bolstering you have played games for years, even though that helps this is a company that is strictly in the buisness of making money so be sure you make them totally aware of any past sales skills yiu have
Negotiation Details – You can negotiate pay somewhat but i didnt find this out until after the fact

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at GameStop.
Interview Details – Very straight forward. I received a call from the manager after having asked him a few days earlier. So I filled out an application and went into the back room for the interview. It lasted only a few minutes, I shook the man's hand and that was that. Apparently they weren't currently hiring, but kept my application on file.
