    Visual Administrative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GameStop in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, I was called and interviewed over the phone about my qualifications and background. The interviewer was very nice and really liked me. The weird part is when I was asked to come in for a second interview, I asked what day she was thinking of since I was going out of town in the next 2 weeks for my honeymoon, something I had planned MONTHS ago. Immediately the tune changed and she said she would email me if they decided to move forward. I received an email a month later stating they were not going to continue with my interview process because although my skill set was strong, I "lacked a specific skill set needed for the job", aka they weren't happy I went on my honeymoon. Extremely unprofessional. I'm glad they didn't offer me anything, because if this experience is indicative of their work environment, then I'd rather work somewhere that is okay with me taking vacation time, especially when I give them advance notice. Extremely extremely unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy, I had two because management wasn't sure where they wanted to start me off at. They were impressed I dressed up. Standard interview questions were asked, as well as some basic questions about favorite games, systems, etc. They made it a point that they want employees to focus more on sales than video games.

    Relaxed. Guys were playing games on their phones when I showed up. I waited and talked until it was actually time for the interview. They were friendly enough. No difficult questions. They just want to know if you can talk to people about games.
