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

You can negotiate pay somewhat but i didnt find this out until after the fact

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    I was a frequent customer for months before snagging an interview. I became very familiar with the employees there who enjoyed talking with me about my purchases and my experiences with the products. The manager even enjoyed talking with me. After I graduated high school I applied for a job there and was hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions
    • It's been years since the interview so I don't remember specifics, though the common retail question "Give us an example of when you faced hardship and how you overcame it" was one of them.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GameStop in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a face-to-face interview during the seasonal hiring time. Sat down near the store entrance and the hiring manager read from a sheet of questions. I had a connection to someone who knew the manager, so I had that benefit of having a recommendation.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    I skipped the interview because I was a regular customer before an employee and eventually became the greatest asset to the Fresh Meadows location. I knew way more than enough to be kept on staff after the holiday year in which I was hired.

    The paperwork itself is like most other jobs a few years ago. A huge packet of forms and information about the company, it's rules, benefits, etc.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GameStop.

    Interview Details

    GameStop receives multiple applications daily.
    1. When picking up, or dropping off an application, dress for the job,
    2. Wait politely for a break in customers, before you ask for an application or drop one off.
    3. Do NOT, fill out the application at the store. This is just unprofessional.

    Interviews are standard and laid back.
    Be professional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GameStop in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application online February 11 2013. got a call from a regional about 3 weeks later, and interviewed with two guys in the food court of the mall I didn't feel that it went well, and i usually interview pretty well... but 2 weeks later got a call from a store manager, had an interview 2 days later with him. he said the first two guys were impressed,and he asked usual questions, and got to know me a little more.
    They are more concerned with your selling abilities. They DO NOT care if you play games or not. Let them know that at other jobs, you always reached your goals, and gave great customer service. Don't think telling them that you have 5 games on reserve, or beat a game in a day, or have a retro collection at home will get you in because it will not.
    dress nice, be personable.

    Extremely straight forward. Game Stop has a quota to make in regards to female associates. If you happen to actually play games, have a personable demeanor, and are outgoing enough to entice customers in buying add on products you're in.
