    I have been working at GameStop part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Usually, the actual coworkers with you in the store are great. Even my district's manager is fantastic. in retail, things are very goal driven, which i approve of.

    Cons

    Gamestop cannot stay on one "new motto" we flop all over from the "circle of life" to solution selling 1.0 then 2.0 and 3.0.. then we worked on the pivot method and its just so jumbled and they just need to make a business model and stick to it.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Your company is dying to Amazon. However, we can do midnight launches.Give the extra hours for hyped games and make is so huge that people want to come and get goodies. Our collectable profits are huge at my store. Give us more $5-15 attach items for relevant launches as well... but good ones.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GameStop.

    Interview

    Very standard, entry-level interview. It was informal, done in the assistant manager's office. He was really friendly and offered me the seasonal job on the spot. You don't have to do anything to prepare, just act professional.
