    Pros

    Fun environment, it's great to be able to sell video games and talk about things you are passionate about. The people you work with are great people.

    Cons

    Hours allotted to stores has always been low. This makes doing your operational tasks impossible to do within the allotted hours, forcing the store manager to work far more than the mandatory hours. Store associates are underpaid compared to the rest of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    It is insulting when we are told how profitable the company is but we are given the minimum amount of hours the are given to stores. Be more mindful of issues such as these when dealing with the blood of the company.
