Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Mostly young staff, good discounts, sometimes fun customers, inside industry news and knowledge, fast-paced environment, relaxed dress code, flexible hours.

Cons

Schedule based on performance, pressure from management to make hard sales, handling dirty used games and consoles, sales model based on pure profit from customers.

Advice to Management

GameStop has virtually no competition, it makes all of it's money from used game sales. Quit pressuring customers for sales and provide a boutique-style experience in the store to make them comfortable and keep them coming back. Recognize when an employee works hard and not just employees who sell hard using dirty tactics used by management.

    Pros

    Video game lover, good management, great relationships

    Cons

    Only closed two days out of the year. Sometimes don't send enough merchandise for the employees!

    Advice to Management

    Overall great job, but a lot of times when we send back detectives, they are sent back and still not working. GameStop gives you a great and positive environment with plenty of opportunity for success. As someone who used to be at the bottom of the totem pole I would have liked to have gotten some of the rewards the key holders got when we met goals. since I was a big part of the success of the team.
