Pros

If you enjoy games and the game industry, it is a great place to interact with like minded people as customers.
There is a sense of satisfaction when you help a customer out, especially with kids who really seem appreciative of help.

Cons

Corporate pretty much dictates everything that goes on in the store.
Employees tend to shoulder the blame for things they have no control over, like trade in value.
Tedious inventory checks in the morning for seemingly random items.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your store managers some more control over their stores. They see their customers daily, they know what they want. Don't be so rigid.

    I worked at GameStop part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Discount on videogames, occasional access to marketing collectables

    Cons

    Bad company culture, no support from upper management, obscenely low pay, no employee appreciation, ludicrous demands for store ops e.g. 80 work hours for a seven day period to be spread across 2 ASMs, 2 SGAs, and 3 GAs. The daily work demanded by corporate should grant at least 135 in order to perform all of it. Complete disregard of policy by upper management. AWFUL product management. This is the only company I have ever worked for that sends entire boxes or product, 60+ games, that are physically broken and will not play but will still order employees to sell them. If the games are not sold or are marked as defective, the store/company takes a loss and the employee that does the work is at risk of losing their job.
