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

Pros

Surrounded by games, great people, and great environment.. What's not to love.

You're never working late, and if you do your job, everyday runs smooth.

Cons

Low pay since EBGames was bought. In my district, the district manager promoted Assistant managers to stores based on how much he liked you, and not skill. Management makes this company a college job and not something past that.

Advice to Management

Look at the skills of the employees and not how much you like them.
