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

Former Employee - Store Manager in Baltimore, MD

I worked at GameStop full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fun 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.

Cons

In 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 ManagementAdvice

Remember 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.

    The company isn't that great to work for, but the job itself gets you attatched to the workplace.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at GameStop full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are able to be around some of the best people in the culture, which you should like if you work there.

    Cons

    The hours are insane. The compensation is ridiculous. Initiatives change weekly so it is impossible to really grow and build a good team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hourly wages for all, don't grind us to the bone for ideas that aren't fully fleshed out. Don't make us push reservations when nothing is coming out.
