It's all about reserves, subscriptions and web hits.

ProsEngaged public that loves the product you sell. They enjoy feedback and suggestions. Happy parents really are a joy to deal with.

ConsOddly enough, they don't focus on sales or profit. You might know these things that drive your business. Not Gamestop, they want future sales so they push reserves, magazines and web hits. While these things will never show directly on anyone's P&L, they feel they are the drivers of a successful business. As explained to me, my staff should be like sharks and constantly attack for game reserves and subscriptions.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's a shame you took a culture from EB games that was about selling and providing value to the guest and drove it away. It appears you really want assistants running the store while the DM's micro manage.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
