    I worked at GameStop

    Pros

    - You can check out video games.
    - Employee discount.
    - You get to learn about new games while being paid.
    - The regular customers are really great.
    - Most of my co-workers were awesome.

    Cons

    - Pays minimum wage.
    - NO HOURS! I was getting 40 hours a week when I first started, but it eventually got to the point that I wouldn't be put on the schedule unless I called the district manager and complained.
    - You have to try and convince every single customer to subscribe to Game Informer and/or reserve a game. Even if it's a 70 year old grandmother buying a $10 gift certificate for her grandchild. You still have to ask, even if you know for a fact that they're not interested or you get fussed at.
    - They do pocket and purse checks every time you walk out of the store. It sucks feeling like your employer never trusts you, even if you've worked there for years.
    - They never promote people within a store. If you get a new manager, he usually comes from somewhere else.
    - When I left, the manager at my store had only been with the company for 6 months before he became a manager and got his very own store. I worked there for years and never got any promotions. Never got any raises either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire a bunch of employees and give everyone like 3 hours a week! Give those extra hours to the employees that you already have! A three or four hour shift is a waste of your employees' time.
