Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Montgomery, AL) in October 2014.

Interview

The interview process is very long and drawn out. The DM reached out to me to ask me to come fill out an application for an ASM position. Once the app was filled out we talked for approximately 20 minutes he said that he would contact me within a day to move on to the next level in the process. Waited almost 5 weeks before hearing anything from him. Once I did hear back from him we got the next interview setup. After the second interview he contacted me about an hour after it was over and stated that he wanted to have another face to face with myself and the RM and he would contact me back in two days. Waited 2 months before hearing anything back from him and once I did hear something back he offered me the position and the new hire paperwork took a month alone.

    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

    • there is no real structured questions sometimes. It varies from manager to manager   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GameStop (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I had already worked for the company in the same position before. My interview was mostly to see the growth I had made since I last worked for the company. Usually you interview with an area manager or a store manager and a district manager. They basically look for people who take initiative, are assertive and outgoing, and who have shown leadership in past roles.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Big Spring, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    For management, expect at least 2 interviews with local managers and 1 with district management. The interviews will focus mainly on sales and customer service. I recommend stressing the importance of customer service.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't find the interview process difficult, just long. It was pretty laid-back. The district manager interview was a little intimidating, but it was over the phone, so that helped.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Considering I had a lot of retail management experience, they negotiated a $2 higher pay rate than they normally offer (which is around $9.00 hr,), which was pleasing, but still kind of low.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    Initially applied for position through the GameStop website.
    An area store manager called me the next day for an official interview. I went into the local store and the interview took place in the stock room. They asked me about my previous work experience, why this qualified me to be a leader, my education history, my gaming experience and then my favorite and least favorite game. This store manager okay-ed me and scheduled an interview with the district manager. I met with the district manager 3 days later. The interview was essentially the same except the district manager had me pick my 3 least favorite games and then sell them to him. Very easy interview process.

    No negotiation. They offered me $11 an hour and said they couldn't go any higher.
