    I worked at GameStop full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you are into video games, you will have a lot of access to discounts, games, and the newest peripherals around.

    Cons

    The pay is miserable for anyone not a Store Manager, Key holders are paid next to nothing and are actively prevented from advancement if keeping them in their current position will help the districts numbers. The company is a black hole of personal advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees, respect your customers, and make the company more than a revolving door.
