A fun experience with a door to better opportunities

Senior Game Advisor (Current Employee)

ProsYou talk about video games for a living.
Cheap video games.
Always know when games/collector's editions are in stock and what stores to find them at.
Again, you talk with customers about video games as a job. How much easier can that be?

ConsLots of in-store maintenance (alphabetizing games on the walls, price changes, organizing things, etc.)
Low pay until you enter the upper stratosphere echelons of management
Lots of out-of-work research/game experience needed to give the world-class quality customer service the company touts
Tough to find that perfect balancing point between trying to get a customer to spend more money and not seem like a douchebag trying to make them spend money, but help them save money and get the things they need (and don't need)
