I worked at GameStop

Pros

Check out games
discounts
coworkers
not too stressful

Cons

hard sales goals with the only reimbursement being to keep your job. Radioshack had hard sales goals, but they rewarded you for them

little to no benefits

encourages bad employees who lie to customers to get sales by promoting them

little upward momentum or hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to treat your employees well, and if you are going to pressure them in sales, at least give them some incentive to do so.

    Cons

    -low hours when your a Game Advisor
    -Lines get long due to stores only having two registers
    -some customers are idiots

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to allow your GA's to work more than a 3 or 4 hour shift as it is hard to stick with a job that has such short shifts. Having few hours is not a problem, Just work two jobs.

    Too many Gamestops in one area make too much competition for each store.

    I have been working at GameStop

    Pros

    Discounts on games and accessories. GAs can work their way up fairly quickly if they can sell pre-orders and PUR cards. Decent hours if not a GA. Borrowing games for a few days that you'd like to try.

    Cons

    There are very limited hours for GA employees. Performance based almost solely on selling pre-orders and PUR cards. These numbers are tracked every day for every store. If someone cancels a pre-order, it counts against who ever happened to take the cancel, instead of who sold the pre-order in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some incentive for selling pre-orders and the cards. They say it's a sales job, yet offer no incentive to do well.
