Pros

Free game rentals. If you like video games you literally get to talk about video games all day.

Cons

Big push to get performance numbers with cut in hours if you arent a high performer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find something better than a magazine subscription for employees to push to customers. The card is actually a good deal but nobody wants that magazine.

    I worked at GameStop part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were always a lot of fun to work with and easy to converse with to pass the time. Usually customers were nice and really cool all around people. Not a lot of responsibility. Lots of camaraderie among coworkers. Very little responsibility among the SA's.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't great, we constantly were being pressured to sell people on the paid subscription card. Regional Management were corporate monsters. Overall its retail, which means occasional crazy/angry customers, people trying to scam you, or if your a girl.. people hitting on you. Often we'd get hassled over corporate's decisions and we'd have to enforce them even if we thought they were dumb

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you only give a person one 4 hour day a week do not expect them to be able to keep up with everyone else on reserve/new card numbers.

    I have been working at GameStop part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Check out games. Discounts. Swag.

    Cons

    Extreme pressure to meet preorder numbers (write ups if you don't meet a certain quota which can lead to termination.)
    Placing sales over a good customer experience (approaching as soon as a customer walks in the door. Constant upselling. Insistence to make every customer preorder something.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop emphasizing Powerup cards and preorders. You think it keeps people coming back, and it does to an extent, but not for the reasons you want. It generally drives people to stores where they can walk in and walk out with the item they want.
