    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Senior game advisor interviewed first. Then left and store manager did a second interview. So long as you show your love of games, good sales personality, and happy attitude, you can get it. I showed up without applying, just dropping off resume and cover letter, was called within the hour for an interview that same day, offered a job three days later. I had a great experience and the people were awesome! So excited!

    Game Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email announcing a job fair day a few weeks later. I misjudged how many people would be there and ended up waiting around for about an hour, which was fine but it was somewhat hot in the store. When it was my turn I was lead into the back where three other interviews were taking place at the same time and was asked about eight questions dealing with customer service. I was told I would be contacted by the end of the next week either way, I was never contacted.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop in April 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was scheduled a few weeks off; then they decided to move it up by a week. The day of the interview I was informed of further scheduling conflicts, which they pushed it off to the day after. When they finally decided to call me the person was in a rush and stated that they usually don't hire people at my skill level. They quickly moved on and I have my doubts my resume was read.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Hattiesburg, MS) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back and friendly atmosphere with both the district manager and two other store leaders. I felt at home and completely at ease! It felt both professional, but also as if I had known these people for years.
