Fun for what it is. But be ready for long hours.

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsFun environment, good people to work with, get to talk about gaming all day, in control of your own business, conference is amazing. Overall a fun place to work, my district was particularly great. A lot of good people in the stores and everyone works together and helps each other out when needed.

ConsIn management you work far more than most expect. You will work more than upper management seems to think. Compensation doesn't line up with the amount of work you will have to do in order to "meet the needs of the business" You're in customer service so keep in mind that you will meet a lot of great people but also have to deal with some that are just awful. Unless you want to be a DM or RM there is little advancement. Most advancement seems like a lateral move.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember what its like being an SM. Don't make things complicated. Be realistic with your estimates of times to complete tasks rather than sugar coat things.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
