    I worked at GameStop full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    When I started for Gamestop, it was fantastic, over the years things changed as the business became bigger. Overall it was a good job, it just became my life, and I didnt want that. Its a perfect job for someone who wants to do something part time and fun.

    Cons

    As with most retail, they have goals, and the focus is on selling things like subscriptions and reservations, or used games.
