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.

    I have been working at GameStop

    Pros

    -Check out games
    - The two I have worked at I have great management.
    - Do your job well and you will be rewarded
    - Co-Workers are great and so are customers
    - Dress is very relaxed

    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.
