Gamestop has plans to sustain themselves and to be honest, it looked great at the time. I believe that they will continue to be successful.
The cons from my side was the endless micro managing from my trainer at the time. Always calling me - weekends included to see if I had done my work. The weekends are for me unless there is an emergency. I was never really applauded when I did something correct but was ALWAYS told I did something wrong when I did.
I wasn't a store manager but I did feel for them at times. As someone in a regional position, I thought it was unfair that Store Managers worked longer and sometimes harder than we did. They do not get paid enough for the work they put in and for those of you still there, I applaud you. Stay passionate, continue to work hard and good things will come to you whether that is at Gamestop or somewhere else, I promise you!
Advice to Management
My immediate manager was the best manager I EVER worked for. Whoever has that man as a director is extremely lucky. ALL management should be as transparent as possible.

I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at GameStop.
I handed in an application in person at the store, and a few days later the manager called me back to set up an interview. It was pretty casual, only took about 20 minutes, and none of the questions were hard or unexpected - mostly very basic stuff, and then some questions about your interest/knowledge in games.
