    I worked at GameStop part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on games, swag from vendors, able to rent games to try out for a few days, and flexible hours

    Cons

    Lack of hours despite heavy traffic in store, incompetent and iresponsible managers and DMs, ridiculously high turn-over rate, lack of security inside and outside of store, selective policy enforcement, low pay rate from minimum wage, employees and managers have the maturity of junior high school students, having almost no standards when managers bring in new employees, "At will" employment, severe lack of shift coverages due to lack of hours, company offers little to no official training for employees, little promotional opportunities, managers prioritize overly pushing for game reservations, magazine subscription, accessories, etc over customer service....and more!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to renew their entire company operations and take the correct steps in improving both working and shopping environment at Gamestop ASAP!

    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
