    Once a visionary giant has lost its way and turned an economic downturn into the end of days.

    I worked at GameStop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Health / Dental benefits
    401k
    Discount on new and used software

    Cons

    No work / life balance and upper management no longer trusts store managers to run their locations. Expect heavy micro-management and inconsistent / unrealistic expectations.

    I have been working at GameStop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to spend a time discussing your favorite games, and interacting with customers who share similar (at times) passions.

    Cons

    Forced to sell subscriptions, but are not rewarded with bonuses or commission. In fact, your only reward for meeting your goal is to not get fired...but that will come as quickly as a dry spell.

    There is absolutely no job security. If you don't meet standards, irrespective of your position, you will be canned. For instance, if you work in a low-sales area which has seen high turnover due to past poor performance of management (which wasn't their fault, but rather the local economy, or customer base), you will be treated as though the low sales are indicative of your efforts.

    I topped the local sales figures for nearly 3 months straight, had one bad week and got a nasty email from our regional manager. Your past success will never be measured against your current success or failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company does not care about its people, what-so-ever. You should bring the pay scale up considerably - even McDonalds pays their managers better.
