Advice to Management

Figure out a way to allow your GA's to work more than a 3 or 4 hour shift as it is hard to stick with a job that has such short shifts. Having few hours is not a problem, Just work two jobs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Check out pre-owned games to play.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Lack of advancement once you reach SM. Promoted based on #s/friendship with DM and not work ethic. SM made to work a lot more hours than required to save company money.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay your employees more money or not force management to work crazy hours. SM pay pretty much breaks down to around 11 per hour based of # of hours you work a week. Stop being so cheap! Profits are so high but money only goes back to top management.

    Pros

    access to a very large knowledge base of games and systems.

    Decent discount.

    Cons

    a proverbial TON of bull and hoop jumping Store Managers have to jump through to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Store managers are awesome. the ones who call the shots with sales and hours to store should be shot. have their pay decreased so the stores can gain more hours to actually function properly.
