    Game Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Long Beach, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Long Beach, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    There were two in-person reviews before I finally got the position. They both went fairly well, I'd recommend dressing for business-casual. At the time, I applied in-store. But I believe it is all carried out online now.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GameStop (Santa Ana, CA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    The manager tried to see our math skills to convince customers to subscribe to the magazine and reserve games. He pretended to be a customer by purchasing used games and has us emphasize on the savings the customer will receive if they apply for the game informer and then to convince him (based on the games he was buying) to get a reservation. When I got confused he did help me out until I was convincing enough then he hired me on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • what is the gamer informer? What is a reservation? If I buy two used games (54.99 each) how much will I save if I subscribe to the game informer? How much is the game informer? How do you convince someone to subscribe to the game informer if they are buying 2 used games for 54.99? If I like shooter games, what game should I reserve?   1 Answer

    Game Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fountain Valley, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GameStop (Fountain Valley, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked to come to the store for my first interview and was asked very generic questions. When I passed the first interview they scheduled a second interview which I later found out was a group interview. There were at least 15 other people applying for a position at GameStop. We were asked one question and each person had to answer that question one right after the other. The middle of the circle seemed to be the best place to be at because you got to hear enough other answers to get a better idea of how to word what you want to say and you didn't seem to have your answer stolen from you as was evident as when the people at the end of the circle had next to nothing to say or the same answers that their peers had said before them.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop (Arcadia, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very casual, you arrive to the interview in a semi-formal fashion and they sit you down near a table to talk about the job and what it entitles. The interview isn't so difficult, but you do have to have prior knowledge about video games and its counsels.

    Interview

    It was a very comfortable interview. They asked me questions about past experience, customer service, and selling experience. I was confident without being arrogant, and I always made sure I didn't go too long with y answers. Telling stories of previous job situations ang how they were handled helped them get a better picture of you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop (Fullerton, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Group interview. Speak up and you'll probably get the job. They say you don't need to know much about games because if you get asked questions on the job, you can refer them to another employee. Don't trust that. They'll leave you gaping at a customer.
