Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Small Discount
Sometimes getting to talk to a customer about gaming
Fun staff to work with

Cons

Started during holidays, where all that mattered was getting people in and out the door. When mid-January hits, now it's all about numbers. No training on how to pitch anything then constantly berated for not getting the numbers.

Advice to Management

Take the place of a GA or even a manager for a week and see how the lack of hours starts to wear away at your soul.
