Game Advisor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at GameStop (Seattle, WA) in October 2015.

Interview

The whole process took about a week. I went into GameStop on a Tuesday when they were pretty empty to pick up a game I preordered. I asked while I was paying if they were hiring and received an application for the last position they had open for seasonal. I was asked to come in for an interview while I was getting the application on the following Saturday at 2pm. When I came back on Saturday they were pretty empty again. I talked with two of the employees working at the back of the store while the manager skimmed over my application pretty quickly. I was taken to the back room and had somewhat of an informal interview where I was sitting and the manager was standing and taking notes. The actual interview took about 10 - 15 minutes where I was offered a position by the end. They took some basic info down for the job and told me whenI would have my first shift and I was on my way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GameStop (Duluth, GA).

    Interview

    I'm going to be honest and say that one of my friends was actually the person who was able to provide me with a job here. She had worked there for a few years beforehand and they needed people for the holidays so it was basically like I was promised a job.

    I still had to fill out an application and was given a date to come in to be interviewed. That day I was hired and had to put in my personal information into their system. The next time I was called in I started training.

    Specifically, I was interviewed by an associate that I'd come to know and love as a great coworker. For the interview, it took place in the backroom since they didn't have any kind of office space and he asked me questions off of a clipboard.

    Of course I was nervous because it was my first job and I did my best to offer my most genuine but still work-worthy responses.

    They took you into the back room and asked many questions about video games and which consoles you owned, at the time the guy asked me to also sell him on a pen. It was pretty straight forward and east.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GameStop (Miami, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    They asked very light questions, mostly about my life schedule and obligations, how much experience i have with games, consoles and the like. The only question that was overly specific is if I had any preference of console. Hiring process was seamless. They call you beforehand to get all your basic information to put on your hiring forms and once you go in for your training they make you fill out the personal stuff like entitlements and dependents and such. They immediately make you go into their "LevelUp" program to start your training.

    Interview

    Happened in a group interview (large group then asked questions by a panel of interviewers). It wasn't bad but it seemed like they wanted to see who looked best out of the group. Called it a job fair despite not really being a job fair. The interviewers were very pleasant and the overall process was relatively simple
