    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    I was not expected to overdress, wearing casual clothing was fine.

    The store manager took me into the backroom of the store for the interview.

    When seated at the desk, you can show them your resume, portfolio, or any other paperwork before questioning starts.

    You will be questioned on your history and knowledge of modern video game software and hardware. (ex. Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, Wii, Wii-U, Nintendo Switch.)

    After that, you will have the chance to ask the store manager some questions.

    The interview ends with a short period of shaking hands and thanking each other for their time. The store manager may directly tell you on the spot that you will get the position or they'll give you a call in a few days to let you know the results.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    Interviews at Gamestop are practically non-existant. Hiring tends to happen when regulars want a job and the team leaders of that store enjoy them. When forced to hire outside of that realm its the basic questions of availablity and values or working.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop (San Diego, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Asked me about myself and was very laid back and totally chill. Just asked about video game knowledge and what I can bring to the team. The assistant manager interviewed me. He was in his twenties so he was really relatable and totally understood how I felt and explained the Circle of Life.

    Interview

    Standard interview process overall. In the holiday season, interviews are done in group format as a better use of time. Some questions were asked to individuals only, other questions were asked to each person in the interview.
