A frustrating example of doing things hard, not smart.

Senior Game Advisor (Former Employee)
Glendale, CA

I worked at GameStop full-time for less than a year

ProsGenerally good customers. You can try before you buy. It's easy to build relationships with customers because many of them are regulars.

ConsA lot of tasks that could be simplified using easily available technology (such as scanners for inventory). Tasks make time management nearly impossible for higher traffic stores. Low traffic stores are not as difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on time management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
