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.

    I have been working at GameStop part-time

    Pros

    Can be quick advancement
    Decent checkout policies, although controversial

    Cons

    High Pressure Sales
    Low Incentive
    Do good, nobody cares. Do bad, corporate will come down on you.
    Corporate likes to hire store managers and district managers out of the company
    Forces stores to hire minorities for equality, forcing discrimination of qualified applicants

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting so much pressure on your employees to bombard customers with Reservations, PowerUp Cards, Warranties, Surveys, Notification Lists, Add-on sales, and Net10.
