    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GameStop (Big Spring, TX).

    Interview

    During certain times of the year, mainly holiday, or in the event of someone leaving the company for X,Y,Z reason are the best times to try to get hired at your local Gamestop. Interviews are usually 20-60 mins depending on the management who's doing the interviews. I was able to be referred via taking a college course with the manager of my local Gamestop and through social networking landed an interview within a week of putting in my application.

    Interview Questions

    • Be ready for anything as this depends very much so on the hiring manager.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was hired on as a Game Advisor. Negotiation phase was more of a large exhange of information as far as the typical on-boarding process. You're basically informed of your expected amount of hours to recieve, or simply shown the schedules, and your payrate. Overall standard stuff.

    Interview

    You are interviewed by the store manager first and then district manager. If you are lucky, you get an interview with the district manager depending if they are a good one. The hiring process is fairly easy and traditional sometimes, starting with a phone call to come in for the face to face. This is for management positions only, for partime game advisors theres a group interview sometimes.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop in April 2011.

    Interview

    When I interviewed i did not know what to expect, so I dressed up in a nice suit and tie. When I got there I found out that the interview was pretty casual. We went to the back of the store and I finally got to see what behind one of the stores looked like and there wasn't much in there. The interview consisted of questions about previous work experience and what you would feel comfortable doing. One question was why do I want to work at Game Stop. This ended up turning the interview into a conversation about the business aspects behind the gaming industry. I was filled in with a lot of information about the gaming retail industry. At the end of the interview I was told by the assistant manager that he was really impressed with my knowledge on the gaming industry and business and retail on a whole. He said that he will pass on the information to the manager and I will hear from them soon. I got a call the next evening from the manager saying that he wanted to meet with me but he wanted me to come in the same time that the regional director would be there so they both can talk with me. We hadn't agreed on a day and time yet when I received a call from the assistant manager saying that the manager told him that they would like to bring me on but there are no positions available at the time for managers because they expected a position to have opened up but it didn't. I have not heard back from them as yet but I also did not follow up as I should have.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Lansing, MI) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Unfortunately any position below SM is usually done by the SM, and most of them have no idea what they are doing. By being well dressed, well spoken and knowledgeable and friendly, you already stand out among the hundreds of dumb people that apply each year.

    None, they make an offer, take it or leave it.

    Interview

    One interview, sit down with district manager in mall location. Questions focused on former team building and program selling. Big plus if your previous company was membership based, as the Gamestop experience requires lots of club selling with power up rewards.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at GameStop in October 2009.

    Interview

    Getting an interview at the store level requires either a lot of luck, or knowing someone who works there. With 5 to 10 employees on payroll at a time, stores have little wiggle room to higher new people. That being said, on the average week 15-30 people apply for a job. Good luck!

    Interview Questions

    • The interview is being done by an overworked schlub who doesn't feel valued by their boss. Dress nice, answer honestly, and don't be an idiot. You probably won't get the job though, unless you are over-qualified. Most people have a bachelors degree and are essentially working the McDonald's of video game retail. Seriously, I once worked in a retail store with a man with his masters degree in Genetics... everyone seems to be overqualified for their jobs these days.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating.
