Pros

GameStop has a very flexible schedule for students. There are health insurance benefits available at all levels. Promotion is almost entirely done from within. Assistant managers receive competitive pay and benefits.

Cons

GameStop does not guarantee a minimum amount of hours for anyone who is below the assistant manager level. Store managers are encouraged to work about 60 hours a week with no extra compensation.

    Pros

    Free Game Rentals, Discounts, Free games (a rarity for this position) Fun people depending on Store Manager. Learn customer service/tech skills to apply to a business career.

    Cons

    Little to No hours. High expectations with no commission or benefits. Always about numbers. Pushy managers/ District Managers. Projects must be done within a certain time frame without hours to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Give people time to complete projects if you want them done correctly. Need to have more hours available to cut down on wait time for customers.


  2. Great Business model, Poor leadership and Upper Mgmt Disconnect

    Pros

    Customer interactions, vendor gifts, company paid annual trip. If you love games and talking about games, this is for you.

    Cons

    No support from the District Manager level and up, At will employer = don't make a single mistake or you're out. It's about who you know in order for you to advance within the company. Don't be vocal, you'll be a target.

    Advice to Management

    The Executives really need to get their heads on straight and see that the issues that the stores are supposedly having are not largely started at the store level, but at the DM/RD level. When they make up their own rules to replace the companies policies and procedures you lose really good store employees. Don't think that there aren't issues that are generated by the store level either, but you need to stop hiring kids and gamers and actually hire people to manage the stores and staffs.
