    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went to a job fair hiring store managers/assistant store managers/regular employees. Wasn't asked too many questions, got a call back for a group interview. I thought it went very well and I stood out from everyone, only to find out at the end they were never hiring for assistant managers. I don't understand putting that on the job fair sign, but they did. Only hiring for seasonal part time.

    The interview was fairly easy, the first interview was with the general manager and lasted about 25 minutes. Right after he invited me to a second interview with the area manager. That interview was about management questions such as scenarios and previous situations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Pensacola, FL).

    Interview

    The interview process for the Assistant Store Manager position was simple. It involved an initial interview with the Store Manager that was very by-the-book and focused specifically on previous experience with questions generally expecting to be answered in the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format. The interview lasted approximately one hour. A follow-up interview with the District Manager was conducted the next day. This interview was more casual and seemed to focus on the manner in which I responded as opposed to what I was actually saying. This interview lasted about 30-45 minutes.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Williston, ND) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They take you into a small back room where inventory is kept. It's pretty basic as far as the process goes. They have a booklet that they have to follow and fill out, and ask silly questions about scenarios that would never occur, just to get a feel for your attitude/personality. They explain the benefits for working with the company and express how much the company cares for its employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Mount Dora, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called next day, interview set up for the following week. Arrived at store, waited for previous interviewee to finish with the store manager, the entire interview process at the store took over 2 hours from arrival to departure. I was read the entire interview from a sheet of paper, very robotic, manager didn't seem to care for personality. I was asked the basic management interview questions and then graded on my replies right in front of my face on the paper.

    Pretty standard. Be up beat driven and customer focused. Don't be a hardcore fan of one system or another, its OK to prefer Xbox over PlayStation, but don't put down to other systems.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    I was approached by another Store Manager and told that he was in charge of finding a manager to take over his store because he was being moved to one being built.
    I was hired as a Manager Trainee and told it was a 6 week training process.
    The manager left the following week and suddenly the current assistant manager and I were left to run the store and he still had to train me... he realized that he was training his new boss instead of getting the promotion himself so he just stopped training me.
    By the end of the month they moved a different manager from a nearby store to take over this one, his assistant was promoted, and I was stuck as a trainee in the system for 3 months before the assistant that didn't train me was moved to a different location and I was made the assistant.
    I had to deal with constant complaints that I didn't know how to do many of the back office or inventory jobs, and though I explained that I'd never been trained or told about them I was still to blame as far as the manager cared.
    by 6 months I was told that there weren't any other store manager positions likely to come up unless someone quit or was fired... so I was stuck as an assistant making roughly 2/3rds what I was told I would get.
    I left before my 2 year anniversary for a much better job.
