Easy Interview

I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop (New York, NY).

Interview

They take your into the (often messy) back room to ask questions about your retail experience and gaming knowledge. They ask the same questions of a sheet of paper every time.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was not drawn out. It was pretty quick & to the point, which I prefer! It began as a group interview with me & 2 other guys then we each talked with the interviewer 1:1. I was offered the job on site & accepted!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty laid back interview. To me, it seemed like they just wanted to make sure that you were just trying to see if you're a normal person and possibly if you actually like video games, though the latter might just be a plus. I arrived and they just asked me a few work history related questions and before I knew it I was hired. The interview seemed like more of a formality in my case.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop (Escondido, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was fun and easy. The manager interviewing me was down to earth and made me feel comfortable right off the bat! Walked into the room and sat down. She started asking me questions and asking about me. Interview was short but fun.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Orange, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Apply in person, you get a call for a individual interview, you get interviewed by two people. I feel like they choose who ever they want not necessarily if you have experience. I might add my availability was open.

    Interview

    Average interview. I arrived at the store for a group interview that consisted of the run of the mill basic interview questions. Second round, the store manager and I went to the neighboring coffee shop. The manager first asked some questions just to gather the kind of person I was and then proceeded to ask me more specific behavioral questions.

    Game Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Portland, OR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Around 3 weeks after I applied in-store I got a call from the store manager asking if I would do an interview that was scheduled in 2-3 days later. During the interview I almost felt as though I was being treated as a 15 year old kid in my first job interview (I'm 19 and have had quite a bit of interview experience). She pretty much asked questions like what would you do if such as such happened? But overall the interview went good and the manager said she wanted to schedule a phone interview. The next day I got a call to schedule a phone interview which was around a week later. The phone interview lasted around 15 minutes and was with the district manager, she just gave me scenarios as if she was the customer and I was the employee. After the phone interview the manager said she would call at the end of the day to tell me if I got the job or not. A few hours I got a call saying I got the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on a Sunday night and got a call for an interview the next morning, which took place on Wednesday. The interview was easy and the manager seemed responsive to my answers and an overall nice person. I have about 5 years worth of work experience with jobs here and there, but was told that I might be "a little overqualified" for the position. I have no idea why - I am currently finishing up a bachelors degree, though I don't know why that would factor into this position as I have extensive gaming knowledge. The manager said that he had one more person to interview the following day, and that I should receive a phone call on Friday if I got the job or not. Overall, I think the interview was casual and went really, really well. It's been nearly 4 weeks later and I have NOT heard back from the store. The job position is still available to apply for online, so it hasn't been filled as far as I know. I'm still crossing my fingers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GameStop (Louisville, KY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Group interview, just have confidence. You can get anywhere with your head held high and your fake retail smile shining through.
    In the interview, it was me and two guys who were also in college. One of them was overdressed in a suit, don't do that, it is GameStop wear a button up and nice khakis. I assumed he wasn't called back because of he seemed to be very strict and 'I do things this one way'
    The other guy was wearing a Metallica Tshirt, repeat what I said before! But, he wasn't confident, fake it until you make it kids!
