    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Compton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GameStop (Compton, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Not really much to say we were gathered into the back room. Most people wearing shirts half undone and jeans, some people dressed up. the interview itself was simple enough, ask a question, one by one we all answered going in counter clockwise circle, people heard the first persons answer and essentially repeated or started to play a weird game of telephone where the last persons answer is now about customer service when the initial question was about your favorite video game. the thing that struck me is the interviewers, commented on what a fine answer it was although they had originally asked the question, "whats your experience with video games? and what kind of games do you play?" and the answer goes from " GEARS OF WAR 2!", first person, "Well i would recommend gears of war ", says second person. "gears of war 2 is a great game but i would talk to the customer", says person 3, "fall out three..." says me, followed by a story about why i like video games. "customers are really important" says person too my right, and the last person ends on the note that without the customers we wouldn't have been here... i wanted to say something... i really did... but i was in an interview... anyways.. bout 2 hours and 4 stuttering people repeating how important customer service is later, end of the interview, and apparently we all did great. business cards for all, now we schedule a follow up interview.
    took time to talk to the manager and district manager, seeing as i had driven over night from san fran to long beach, about 500 some miles... to be at this interview... just back from vacation, cut it a little short to be there.. and i wanted to make sure he knew. he knew. he was appreciative.
    tried too schedule the second interview several, several times over the next week. and finally get a call 3 days later saying that they will schedule the interviews in a week. 3 weeks later im sitting here with no job, and not so much as a phone call. and any attempts of communication on this basis is lost to voice mail, and leaving messages with people.

    maybe it takes longer though.

    idk.

    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.

    Zero negotiation.
