    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at GameStop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours
    Personal relationships with co-workers
    Being able to actually learn the business and getting an understanding of a corporation

    Cons

    Open 7 days a week
    The store managers are responsible for everything almost like it's a franchise

    Advice to Management

    Expect to work hard but alot harder if you aren't organized. And you have to responsibility for everything that happens in your store

    Game Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auburn Hills, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at GameStop (Auburn Hills, MI).

    Interview

    Standard questionnaire they ask at any job interview for retail. Same set of questions give examples of customer service and such. It was a sit down one on one type however now it is more of a fair set up.
