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

Pros

GameStop has a very flexible schedule for students. There are health insurance benefits available at all levels. Promotion is almost entirely done from within. Assistant managers receive competitive pay and benefits.

Cons

GameStop does not guarantee a minimum amount of hours for anyone who is below the assistant manager level. Store managers are encouraged to work about 60 hours a week with no extra compensation.

    I worked at GameStop full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Video games, free video game check-outs (rentals), lots of freebies associated with Gamestop's annual conference for store managers.

    Cons

    Working 70 hours a week during the holidays, working alone, not enough hours allocated to running the store effectively, not enough time to take lunch breaks or quick rest breaks, stand on your feet all day, not getting to see your own family very often, low starting pay, high pressure to reach goal "numbers," yet no commission incentives are offered--there are not many rewards for reaching these numbers, but there are plenty of punishments. Turnover for part-timers is extremely high so look forward to constantly training new people.

    Advice to Management

    More hours allocated to running the store effectively. Hire better people and also allocate more full-time positions. There's no reason to have six employees who only work four hours a week. More formal training for all employees

    Pros

    Great way to make friends and help give 100% customer Service, and will always work round your schedual

    Cons

    Never get the hours you are told you will get. Corp give no hours to run store, RD and DM expect you to have everything done when its only you and one other person and 250 customers a day
