Pros

You can look at video games all day.

Cons

Customer service is a trial, the company only really operates during the holiday season, otherwise it remains comatose.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, chance to make some good friends on staff.

    Cons

    Bad corporate decisions; invasive customer approach; barely any discount sales anymore, just trade deals.

    Advice to Management

    Customers do not appreciate receiving a phone call from staff members talking up trade promotions every time the game they reserved is ready for release. Many customers have blocked my old location's number. The desired approach for giving customers promotional flyers is invasive. Trade ins also create situations that anger many customers because of the low credit and even lower cash value of the games and systems, which can make for a scary situation for the employee. A lot of work is required for minimum wage and overall feeling like a servant rather than an employee.


  2. overworked, undercompensated, poor support for managers, very disappointing

    Pros

    if you are a gamer, it may or may not be a pro.

    Cons

    low payroll hours, so very little payroll to schedule anyone, A good portion of a manage'rs day may be by themselves, no incentives for employees to strive to be better, managers carry all the responsibility and receive little to no leadership or support. The company has oversaturated the market with too many storesm too close together and store managers are expected to maintain sales numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Look elsewhere
