Pros

Free game checkouts, occasional free games given by vendors, decent work environment, good benefits, set your own schedule with some limitations.

Cons

Too much work to do and not enough help. Constantly counting inventory with category counts and counting wall facings. The counts are to be done before opening at 10:00 A.M. but it's not possible. There is a strict limit on payroll hours so you don't have time to do everything because you have no help.

Advice to Management

Increase payroll hours for the stores and it will probably help with the attrition. I saw a half-dozen managers go before I did.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very cool product, constant change in product, not a physically demanding job.

    Cons

    Extremely short staffed due to payroll, too much emphasis in reserves and subscriptions, too many midnight sales for mediocre game launches.

    Advice to Management

    Change your image from being scam artists to being a more likable, hip company like an Apple.

    Pros

    Work with fun people Freebies Game checkouts somewhat flexible schedules good discount fun work environment if you work hard you get a lot of down time when you can just organize the store and make everything look nice

    Cons

    not enough hours not enough hours not enough hours not enough hours I am a manager and some weeks i get 35 hours, others (like next week) i get 20, it is very inconstant no set scheduling (because of our store manager, even though every employee asks for it) the assistant manager and third key seem to do most of the management work

    Advice to Management

    The store manager is the ONLY one on salary so their hours dont count twards the store, some of the store managers put in way way more time than they get paid to do, a lot do the bare minimum required, and at that point, they dont work very hard either despite what they tell you. my store in particular would not survive if it was not for the assistant manager. the store manager starts projects that havent been touched at all for the last 2 weeks. i did 4 out of 7 category counts on sunday, the other 3 havent been done yet, and i have not been in the store to do them, they should have been done by the store manager on monday when they opened.
