    Pros

    - Able to talk to like minded individuals about video games. - Frequently the first to know release dates for new upcoming titles. - Semi-frequently given "swag" items from popular video games. - 15% discount on non-system items.

    Cons

    - Forced to sacrifice excellent customer service in exchange for "numbers" - Frequently required to make changes to marketing, store layout, store procedures by company district managers, only to be reprimanded by the regional managers for making those changes and vice versa. - Frequently feels like you are implementing procedures that were never actually tested on the store level, and were just dreamed up by people who will not need to follow the procedures and directives they made. - Lack of communication and unification among upper management (see above) - Unrealistic sales expectations for terrible titles, set by ill informed higher ups who are easily bought by video game marketing and PR teams. - Heavy reliance on used sales as profit for company, which will slowly start to fade as the industry begins to shift to online digital download sales. (this is already happening)

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to ensure that they are all on the same page. Having to follow conflicting directives from district managers, area managers, marketing directors and even loss prevention managers creates a convoluted mess and more work for the hard working grunts toiling away on the store level. Which as anyone can see is a waste of man hours and money.


  2. Fun with but not the most rewarding
