    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
