    Pros

    great people in store to work with and great products. most customers are great.

    Cons

    upper management changes things at least once a week. pay could be better and better discounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some one to run the company with some type of business knowledge otherwise you will be out of business in 2 years. changing things will cause mess ups. respect the employees who work well and they will work for you. offer some type of bonus for employees to get. listen to team members and managers and you will learn more than the regional manager, who knows nothing about the stores besides that they are always down in sales.

    I worked at Gamers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Closed at night and Martin Luther King day

    Cons

    Will cheat you out of your money - return policy includes "return fee" - everyday that you have the game - you lose money.
    Pay cents on the dollar for trade-ins then turn around charge premium price.
    Ebay/Amazon have better deals and better personalities!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open a car wash

    I have been working at Gamers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are fun, no real restrictions on conversations, decent pay for retail. Flexible scheduling and time off as long as management is notified in advance.

    Cons

    Sleazy upper management. Be prepared to be held responsible for shitty store policies. No raises. Employees are treated more like androids than humans.

    Successful stores pay for smaller, middle of nowhere stores. Wages are frozen because of this, although it's only an annual 2% raise on around $8/hr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to store employees. A DM who is in the store once a month cannot understand why a situation has arisen. Treat your employees better so they don't feel like they are being exploited. Give commission or bonuses to employees/stores who meet sales and support goals.

    I worked at Gamers

    Pros

    Better than Gamestop and the staff and hours are more plentiful.

    Cons

    Prepare to do LOTS of cleaning and wiring as they test ALL their games and clean them ALL up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder or your staff will follow suit in terms of laziness.
