Not as bad as some say, but could definitely be better

Store Manager (Former Employee)

ProsVideogames, not the hardest product to sell. Sales quotas are realistic, reasonable. Potentially awesome coworkers and bosses. I rarely met anyone at the company I didn't like, but when you do encounter that person it can be a trip.

ConsLong workweeks sometimes, especially during the holidays. Increasingly corporate structure which isn't necessarily making money/increasing profits. Easy to hit a ceiling and become complacent.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your people. DMs are even better assets than store managers in some cases, but they're so overworked.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
