    I have been working at GameStop (More than a year)

    Pros

    Between the discounts, check out privileges, and insider information about games it's a great place to work if you love gaming and want to know how good things are gonna be.

    Cons

    Heavy reliance on upper management on Assistants and SGAs with little to no benefit. With the companies constant internal push on stores and employees with challenges and competitions and rewards only to store managers it's hard to get fired up about things.

    This is also true with conference each year, store managers go away for an easy and expenses paid trip, returning with hundreds of dollars in free merchandise while other full timers get to try and figure out how to maintain proper coverage without over time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about your other managers, without the help from the whole team no one man can do anything. It also wouldn't hurt to free up a few more hours over the summer when kids are out and stores business is spread throughout the day instead of tightening the belt and cutting them while still expecting a great attention to each customer.
