    Interview

    Gamestop took forever to respond to my application. I had to go in and call every day for a month before they finally gave me an interview. They weren't very organized and it took me another time to go in to see if I actually got the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop in August 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call from a Gamestop from the store manager and he told me he was really impressed with my application. He said it was such short notice and ask if I could come in for an interview and I happily agreed. I arrived 10 minutes early and the store manager immediately knew who I was and took me to the back of the store and basically asked me standard questions and I replied honestly and openly. Basically, he was impressed with my resume, cover letter, and just how honest I was toward school and about Gamestop. Then he hired me on the spot for a GA position and told me what a GA does. Just be honest and be yourself.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop in August 2015.

    Interview

    I attended a job fair Gamestop was having at a local comic book store. The guy took me in, asked me how my day was going, I said it was going well he asked me what hours would I be willing to work, looked at my job history, and asked how often do I go to their stores. We talked and he explained that its a laid back job, until you get to the fourth quarter of the year (with black Friday and the holiday shopping season).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.
