Raines needs to spend more time working on promoting himself and get the company back on track.

    Pros

    I have worked at GameStop for six years. The work and the people at the store level are amazing. Most of the people I have worked with give their heart and soul to GameStop. It is very easy to get great satisfaction in making your store tidy and working with the customers. GameStop's return policy is also one of the best in retail so as an employee you RARELY have to argue with customers to make sure you follow the polices.

    Cons

    There is only negative reinforcement. Rarely do they tell you, you did a good job. You can have 6 amazing months of numbers and one bad week... They only care about the bad week. Their lack of hours given to the stores mean that Store Managers must work between 50-70 hours a week to be successful. I was a Store Manager for 2 years and asked to be demoted because the 10-30 extra hours per week were not equal to the $100 difference per pay check every 2 weeks. Finally as a Store Manager you are given very little control over your store. You are allowed to hire (if other managers also interviewed the candidate) allowed to fire (only with the District Managers approval) you really have no say on what goes where in the store in which you are responsible.

    Advice to Management

    Help develop your employees to be better leaders and treat them as adults. Holding hands is not required. In the current economy we have lots of people with degrees and advanced degrees running the stores and they should be treated as such.

    Working the Holidays, underpaid, no commission, PreOrder and Subscription demands with no incentive, zero compensation for hard work and efforts, not enough hours are distributed each week from corporate

    Advice to Management

    Our District Manager is a huge problem. Many gamestop employees in my district are unhappy and slowly quitting. Corporate needs to distribute more hours to each store
