    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop (North Charleston, SC).

    Interview

    I was a frequenter of GameStop and noticed they were hiring. I immediately asked about it and was told to fill out an application. After I turned that in, the manager called me about a week later and scheduled an interview. It was a pretty basic one-on-one.. Surprisingly, he didn't ask much about my knowledge of video games.

    Easy Interview

    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

    • What are some of the big titles coming out this year? Are you familiar with the ESRB rating system? If I wanted a new gen rpg what would you recommend?   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Grapevine, TX).

    Interview

    3 separate interviews. 1st was mtg with department director and senior manager. They described the position, requirements, and overall department business. They asked the basic introduction questions, but mostly questions pertaining to prior experience and how it applies to the position. 2nd interview was with the same people. Essentially the same interview but salary was discussed. 3rd interview was with department VP. Asked about my background and spoke about the position/business. Basically wanted to confirm the director's decision to offer the position.
