    Pros

    They let you rent games for evaluation so you know what your talking about when customers come in. Discount on games and movies 10% Discounts from Barnes&Nobel 10% Friendly people that are easy to get along with and easy training.

    Cons

    If you don't like to work a lot this is a great place. They pay you minimum wage starting and when you do get a raise after about 6 months it's like a quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should train their store managers better the first guy I worked with was there for like 6 months before he was tossed out. Also it would be a good idea to get input from the Game Advisors from a creative side because after all we are the people that play and inevitably get customers to make purchases from the store. It would also be awesome if they gave employees discounts on consoles even if it was only once a year at 10% since they can't seem to pay a decent wage, that might slow down employee turnover.

    Pros

    Able to check out games so can play all the new titles the day they are released or days before they are released.

    Cons

    Very bad pay. Do not get paid but minimum wage and customers are so stupid when it comes to finding out the merchandise

    Advice to Management

    Pay you are employees more and they will sell more. stop being so dam dumb and just pay them more. you make a ton of money of used games
