    Pros

    Fast paced environment, always something new going on, Great for those looking for experience in retail. Lots of upward mobility to a point.

    Cons

    The culture of the company became increasingly more hostile over time. The focus on sales figures at this point is to an extreme supplanting all other factors. They also don't seem to understand the individual needs of their stores very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot create generic comparisons of stores in entirely different markets, and expect them to perform the same.

    I have been working at GameStop part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to talk about something you love - games! It's fun to help people find something that they will also enjoy. There is a certain sense of satisfaction when you help a parent to understand the pros and cons to letting their kids play certain games. You can borrow games to try them out before you buy them.

    Cons

    Pay is very low - minimum wage. The company changes the amount of hours each store has, sometimes midweek, meaning that you can lose shifts with little notice. They force you to push their programs, such as their rewards card and pre-orders, and you will lose hours, or even your job, if you don't aggressively push it on customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you don't really pay your employees anything, and you should be able to let two people work at the same time. When you give the store less hours than the number of hours the store is open, you are doing a disservice to your customers. Also, when your employees have to push the cards and preorders so hard, it makes customers feel pressured and more likely to purchase games for the same price or less at competitors, such as Best Buy or Amazon.
