    I have been working at Games Workshop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for Games Workshop is fantastic, Benefits are amazing, Blueshield Bluecross PPO, Delta Dental, EyeMed Vision, 401k, Profit sharing and more.
    Your hours are stable Wednesday through Thursday, as well as a fantastic 50% Discount, amazing business support team to help drive business goals, and regional managers to help drive sales, independent work environment, 91 hours of PTO per year, 34 hours of Sick Time per year.

    Cons

    Mondays and Tuesdays are your only days off, taking time off will cut into your PTO and you must be sure to have someone come out to watch your shop while you are gone, so taking just two days off means you probably won't get someone to be there for the shop.

    The known existence of your shop will be your responsibility because Games Workshop does not advertise your store's locations or it's type of business, which means you will have to rely on word of mouth and walk in customers to help keep your shop going, if walk by traffic is slow then every conversation you have is critical to your success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training we receive is amazing and it costs us a small fortune to put together the Hobby Skills Camp once every three months, invest further into the success of games workshop by advertising our existence in ways more than just word of mouth. Even if it's a simple as online or social advertising.

    One Man Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Games Workshop in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Pretty basic for retail. They check your knowledge of Games Workshop current products. They are only interested in the current products and not what you know about things they aren't currently selling. That can actually be a negative. They are also seeing how enthusiastic you are about working for them.
