I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at GameStop in October 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.
Interview Question – very expected questions Answer Question
Negotiation Details – no negotiation. I was not given my rate until i was already signing new hire paper work
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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 Question – 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
Negotiation Details – No negotiation on pay. On-the-spot offer and acceptance.
I applied in-person and 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.
Interview Question – Since I didn't go through the interview process, I didn't have any difficult or unexpected questions. View Answer
Negotiation Details – N/A
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.
Interview Question – What experiences do you have that will be a benefit to our company? View Answer
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GameStop in February 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted an app because a new store was opening up. I had a detailed resume with it and the hiring manager was actually extremely interested in what my resume was composed of, even if it did not contribute to retail experience. I had two interviews, the first one just being the initial interview with basic questions about myself, what I know about the gaming industry, and why I want to work there. The second interview was a test over the ESRB ratings (it's really easy). Once completed, I was hired on the spot. GameStop tries to be diverse with their candidates. I was the most knowledgeable person of my gender to apply. Knowing what you are talking about really helps. My hiring manager was very relaxed and even made a lot of jokes.
Interview Question – I think the most difficult question was "What are your weaknesses?" The best advice I got about this question is take something negative and turn it into a positive. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was really nothing to negotiate. You can't negotiate wages or anything like that. But try to make sure you have open availability before applying here.
Interviewed at GameStop
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – What would you do if a customer turned down your initial sales pitch? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at GameStop in May 2012.
Interview Details – Getting into GameStop if very difficult if you dont know someone. The best time to get hired is in October for Seasonal work. Usually if you are a regular customer you have an advantage. For an interview you will be called by the store manager and scheduled an interviewing time. The interviewer will ask you questions from a form provided by GameStop, and you will probably talk for a little while and have a popularity contest and depending on how well you do with that, you will be offered a job.
Interview Question – What is your biggest strength and weakness? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – You will not be able to negotiate an hourly position too much. For a Store Manager do not accept the first offer, it is embarrassing.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GameStop in April 2012.
Interview Details – I had an initial face to face interview with the store manager, she wanted me to have two follow up phone interviews with other store managers. Her reasoning for this is great, it ensures that the candidate is truly a good fit for the position rather than hiring someone just based on need. The interviews are conducted with the stores best interest and overall a very pleasant experience.
Interview Question – "Do you understand the value to the company of the programs that are in place and opportunities offered to the customer?" Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at GameStop in November 2010.
Interview Details – Unfortunately, specialized game knowledge is second to your ability as a salesperson. All they want is someone who knows the alphabet and can count and can have a customer leave without being angry. If you're lucky, you'll interview with a store manager who actually appreciates video games, and you'll spend the interview chatting about your old Famicom. Prepare to be blindsided, however, by idiot customers who own Wiis without knowing how to pronounce "Super Mario Brothers" correctly.
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation of anything. GameStop slams you with whatever tiny, miserable, laughable wage they want.
Interviewed at GameStop
Interview Details – Being hired at a gamestop is not something that takes much skill or experience. You really just need to show that particular store manager that you know things about video games and are willing to talk to people. They will try and teach you everything else about the job as you go along.

Pros: You can wind up meeting great people who are fun to work alongside with. These connections can lead to places outside of GameStop (or further up the ladder). It's true you get to spend a lot of time talking about games, and the customers can be a… – Full Review
