I worked at GameStop full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun place to work. Very hip and HR does a very good job of providing events and activities througout the year (like custume contests, video game release parties, etc). Very fiscally conservative.

Cons

Leadership at the time I was there was not in touch with reality. They tried to provide a vision people could get behind but execution was not there. E-commerce, where I worked, was fun but the senior management that was in place when I was only interested in justifying their existance. A bit slow to adopting new technology and communication channels

    I have been working at GameStop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talk video games, have fun, good hours and benefits, decent pay

    Cons

    Upper management and wrong focus. Focus should be on customer service, sales, and pre-owned product, not illusionary business metrics that upper management believes matters.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the customers and they'll take care of you instead of trying to take care of some quick numbers.

    I have been working at GameStop full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GameStop customers are awesome! The customers and my employees are why I stick it out every day.

    Cons

    Too many new initiatives and not enough payroll to balance out the extra work load. Inevitably the store manager ends up working extra hours to balance out the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your store managers and let them do what they do best. Match payroll to key initiatives so that store managers do not have to sacrifice family time.
