Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

Asked a few basic questions. Fave game, what consoles you know, etc. Some questions were hard for others. They divided it up into a weird way, some had group interviews, others had one on one. My friend got asked a bunch of hard questions about the software. Meanwhile, I only got asked my favorite game.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GameStop (Denton, TX).

    Interview

    Very casual. Questions focused on product and store services knowledge along with personal availability. It was in two stages where the store manager, assistant manager, and senior game advisor interviewed each applicant one by one. 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    The process was fairly simple and standard. My only gripe is the amount of time it took between interviews. From the first time I was called back, to the time I was hired took about a month and a week. All the while I was calling at least once a week, to ask how the process was going etc... it felt a bit unnecessary to wait that long. First meet and interview with one manager, then several weeks later, meet the other. Both asked pretty standard and similar questions, with the addition of a few video game specific questions about the gaming industry. If i knew what was coming out soon, whats a popular rpg right now etc... I really enjoyed chatting with the managers in my responses and, if you are a video game nerd, you will probably do fine.

    Interview Questions

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GameStop (Lumberton, NC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Asked base questions about games, customer satisfaction, etc. Was really hands on and very person to person driven. Felt like I was being interviewed and selected not just based off skill, but what my passions were and how I acted. Was definitely a unique and individual experience that I haven't had working at any other establishment.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    I was 20 minutes early to a group interview, so I walked around and looked at games. I was the only one who showed up. The store manager took me into the front of the mall, the interview was about 10 minutes long. After the interview she told me she would have another store manager call me to follow up. I never got a call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GameStop in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was an open interview at the local community college. All the local managers were there (5-7 of them) When I walked in they all seemed to be having a good time, asked me which place I was applying for, then sat down with the manager of that store. I had seen him a few days earlier when I cam in with a friend and bought the Fallout Anthropology edition. We talked to him and another female worker for a bit about our excitement about Fallout 4 and during the interview I asked if he recognized me and he did.
    The interview took place in a small-ish classroom, and we sat across from one another and asked me questions as he looked at my resume/application and handed me a short 4-page employee expectation guide. Yes, all the other managers were there, and maybe one or two other interviews were happening but the interview wasn't interrupted at all.

    They said they'd do call backs Mon/Tue for second interviews (I'll update then).
