    I worked at GameStop part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can get pre-order incentives any time you want.
    The employee discount.
    Always informed on what's coming out
    You'll gain a lot of good customer service skills

    Cons

    Bad pay for the work they expect of you
    Always threatening to give you a write-up if you don't meet the expectations (pre-orders, warranties, membership cards)
    Can be a stressful environment during holidays

    Advice to Management

    Lay off on the employees. My manager at the store was worked to death from stress. He hated to be the bad guy when corporate demands that employees meet the expectations, which is hard when employees can only be scheduled so many hours.
