    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Rock Hill, SC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked to come back for an interview after turning my application into the manager in person. The interview itself was in a small room in the back of the store. Business Casual dress was acceptable anything more and i feel you would have been over dressed. They asked standard interview questions plus game specific questions. As long as you know that games have ratings and loosely what those ratings imply you will do fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GameStop (Fountain Valley, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked to come to the store for my first interview and was asked very generic questions. When I passed the first interview they scheduled a second interview which I later found out was a group interview. There were at least 15 other people applying for a position at GameStop. We were asked one question and each person had to answer that question one right after the other. The middle of the circle seemed to be the best place to be at because you got to hear enough other answers to get a better idea of how to word what you want to say and you didn't seem to have your answer stolen from you as was evident as when the people at the end of the circle had next to nothing to say or the same answers that their peers had said before them.

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate. I was hired as a seasonal adviser and it tends to be whatever the minimum wage is for your state at the time. Be hungry, take all the hours and shifts you can get.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GameStop in October 2014.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and asked the guy at the register (who it turns out was the manager) if they were hiring, he said they were. He asked me if I wanted to fill out the application in store and have a short interview in store since it was slow. After I filled out the application he sat down with me behind the counter and told me that it was basically gonna be a conversation like friends have more than an actual interview. He asked me a few basic questions, then he had one of the guys who worked there go outside and walk in as if he were a customer, and had me show how I would introduce myself to them and about our promotions. Hired right after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Montgomery, AL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is very long and drawn out. The DM reached out to me to ask me to come fill out an application for an ASM position. Once the app was filled out we talked for approximately 20 minutes he said that he would contact me within a day to move on to the next level in the process. Waited almost 5 weeks before hearing anything from him. Once I did hear back from him we got the next interview setup. After the second interview he contacted me about an hour after it was over and stated that he wanted to have another face to face with myself and the RM and he would contact me back in two days. Waited 2 months before hearing anything back from him and once I did hear something back he offered me the position and the new hire paperwork took a month alone.

  Former Game Advisor in Dulles, VA

Pros: “Engaging conversations with customers, staying up to date on gaming news. There is room to move up in the company and become a store or regional manager if you have it in you. Hourly pay...”“Engaging conversations with customers, staying up to date on gaming news. There is room to move up in the company and become a store or regional manager if you have it in you. Hourly pay for PT was almost minimum wage, not worth it unless you love being around games all day.” – Full Review
