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

Pros

Small Discount
Sometimes getting to talk to a customer about gaming
Fun staff to work with

Cons

Started during holidays, where all that mattered was getting people in and out the door. When mid-January hits, now it's all about numbers. No training on how to pitch anything then constantly berated for not getting the numbers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the place of a GA or even a manager for a week and see how the lack of hours starts to wear away at your soul.

    Good work environment

    Low pay (minimum wage job), not much room for growth opportunities beyond store management.
    It is a mostly male-dominated field.

    I went from getting paid to talk and interact about games, to running a register open to close.

    I worked at GameStop full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fun product to sell. Games are a luxury item, and its great to sell people things that they want.

    Cons

    Answering to Wall St means minimal payroll to offer great service. I realize it's a business decision, just like having third world countries make sneakers for pennies a day ( when the shoes are sold for hundreds of dollars for each pair).
