    Corporate Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grapevine, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Grapevine, TX).

    Interview

    I had a phone screening and then was scheduled for an in person interview the next week at the corporate office. I met with one manager and was invited back for a second on site interview two weeks later. Was told I would hear back in about two weeks. I thought I had done well in both interviews and I was excited.

    I heard nothing. I followed up with the recruiter after 2 weeks and was then scheduled for what he called a final on site interview. Later that same day the recruiter let me know that the interview would have to be rescheduled.

    I didn't hear back after a week, emailed to follow up. Still nothing. Emailed the manager of the department I had interviewed with and was told they had gone with another candidate.

    This whole process spanned almost two whole months. I did not receive any emails or phone calls notifying me that they had gone with another candidate. I had to follow up and be persistent to get any answers. I missed time from my current job to attend both interviews. Gamestop obviously has no regard for their candidate's time.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Grapevine, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Called for initial phone interview and then asked to come in for in person interview. Informed within first 2 minutes of interview that position has already been filled and only interviewing me due to an issue on another candidates background check. Interview. Then asked to interview for a different role outside of core competencies only to have the position closed as non-essential. Lack of respect for a candidates time is likely not a sustainable talent acquisition model.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Dallas, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Long and tedious. Was told I was going to be interviewed by 3 persons but only got 2 people to talk to me. I knew something was off by this. I had trouble getting inside the facility because of security measures. Had to wait a while to be attended. I never heard back from them even when they told me they would let me know. I sent them an email to ask what happened, and they never replied. This seemed very unprofessional to my experience.

Next stage was a group interview with the best candidates doing a second interview.
    Second interview focused on ourselves and our personality with simple work situation questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Grapevine, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    HR phone screen followed by a hiring manager phone interview followed by an on-site with 5 different people from the company. The process took around 3 months. Disappointed in the outcome in that I felt the interviews went extremely well and had really great synergy with the members, but was given a "copy and paste" rejection without specific feedback several days after my on-site.
