Average Interview

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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at GameStop (Arcadia, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very casual, you arrive to the interview in a semi-formal fashion and they sit you down near a table to talk about the job and what it entitles. The interview isn't so difficult, but you do have to have prior knowledge about video games and its counsels.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GameStop (West Freehold, NJ) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Laid-back. Interviewer seemed pretty lazy. Interviewer asked questions repeatedly and liked to repeat themselves. Did not seem all that into the interview process and just wanted to get it over with. Eventually told me they just wanted to go home and that i had the job. Usually loses your first job application, so usually resubmit your job application every 2-4 weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at GameStop (Lancaster, PA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at GameStop in October 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was very laid back and chill. It didn't seem that much like an interview, but more so two people having a conversation. It was professional, no doubt, but it wasn't as uptight as other interviews. The process didn't take too long, the interview was a little longer than most, but that's mainly because we were enjoying the conversation and we'd trail off topic sometimes by talking about other things.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't think there was any question that caught me off guard. Most of the questions were the usual questions that would be asked.
      BUT
      There was one question that was awesome. I don't remember what it was, but it was a fun question and there was no right or wrong answer. It was something like "what would you want with you if you were on an island?"
