Very little creative control

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Bordentown, NJ

ProsIf 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.

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

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