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

    Pros

    Met some amazing people there and have made life long friends. Occasional free shirts and promo stuff.

    Cons

    The company. It's goal is to sell, sell, sell. Lie, cheat, sell. You have to meet goal every month or you get written up. They can fire you and hire someone immediately. They don't care about your well-being. You have to bend over backwards for customers. The company will push you to your limit and it will literally eat away at your soul. Hours are cut if the store doesn't meet goal. You do way too much work for very little pay: manage cash register, alphabetize floor and back stock, trades can be extremely overwhelming, marketing, cleaning out trash, etc. Push reserves and subscriptions. Constantly ask customers to do surveys. The systems are hard to navigate sometimes and can be very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team, instead of trying to throw people under the bus or hogging all potential reserve/sub customers.

    I worked at GameStop full-time

    Pros

    GameStop truly wants to promote from within. They commit to your growth just so long as you commit to excellent standards of customer service, dependability, and honesty.

    Cons

    The pay rates are not very competitive. As a manager with several years of experience with the company my base salary was 28K. This figure does not reflect bonus, however, if you are in a low volume store or have demographics that set you back in comparison to "big spender" stores, you will suffer in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the perks that you give to your employees. Many large companies are making progressive leaps in this area; increased pay, health benefits for part-timers, stock options, etc. Bolstering your talent can only help foster a better retention rate and help to improve overall service in an industry where storefronts are struggling.
