Great Environment, some hiccups with higher management

Senior Game Advisor (Former Employee) Athens, GA

ProsCompared with other retail jobs, the atmosphere and the people that you interact with are generally congenial and low-stress. Most people are happy to be shopping for video games, and most people who work in the store love games and helping customers with recommendations. The managers also recognize employees who work hard and try to improve the store beyond their normal duties, rewarding them with more hours and opportunities for advancement within the company.

ConsThe amount of hours to be divided among staff who work at a store can make it difficult to give everyone the hours that they want or need. It can also result in losing good employees because they need more hours to pay their bills. In my case, a regional manager's decision to reduce the store's employee hours resulted in my losing a promotion after I had been a keyholder for a while and quit the other part-time job I had used in combination with GameStop before the keyholder promotion. When that happened, I had to leave the company to get full-time employment.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest that Regional Managers try to be sensitive to recent promotions and store employee hour ratios in their determination of hours per store.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
