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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees get to check out games, it's actually a really fun environment, we have a solid and active customer base, get to meet a ton of new people and I have amazing coworkers

    Cons

    District managers have somewhat unrealistic sales goals, and it's definitely a major target for thieves. There are also really limited hours unless you're a key holder. Expect 4-10 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Lower stress on iDevice sales and number consistency, we honestly do our best all the time.
