    Pros

    Great company, great support from corporate, insider info about gaming industry, easy to move up through the company, great local support network, fun events to plan, the CEO of the company is great (he sends us video and phone messages to keep us motivated and is very enthusiastic and supportive of the store personnel)

    Cons

    Micro-managed, intense pressure to achieve goals, frequently hires people outside of company to fill higher positions, has a change your people or change your people mentality

    Advice to Management

    Know how to play the politics in your favor, keep your nose clean, stay on the radar and below it simultaneously

    I worked at GameStop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talking about games with the regular customers, Most of the midnight launch events were really fun to work, believe it or but actually liked shooting inventories with my fellow managers.

    Cons

    Very low starting pay for Store Managers given all the crap we had to put up with, creating schedules on bare minimum hours sometimes having to work by ourselves, too much focus on performance leading some associates to become pushy with customers, very stressful with the burden of compliance procedures and weekly price changes that would make you go mad.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the performance side of things perhaps if that happened the NPS would go up even more.
