Pros
  • Great business with great people who want to do well (in 8 reviews)

  • Usually enjoyable store teams to work with, lots of camaraderie due to the shared distrust of head office and higher management (in 6 reviews)

Cons
  • Kind of feels like an US V them attitude regarding staff to head office (in 17 reviews)

  • There is no work life balance at all, staff are expected to be on-call 24/7 and can't even take any holidays (in 4 reviews)

    Great place to work if you have a passion for games you get to sell something new every week and the knowledge that the customers coming into your shop are coming in to buy something they will enjoy

    Is been through admin once and the current figures are going on the wrong direction - can you risk losing your job?

    Grab the opportunity with both hands if you get the chance... Just have a back up plan if it all goes to the wall again

    Pros

    Fun place to work, good people and job security. It is a great place to work and if you have a passion for gaming you will love the job and will like turning up for work everyday.

    Cons

    A lot of add on's and not enough training to sell them. It's only a small part of the job and the rest is good.

    Advice to Management

    Management like myself do the best we can to train people to sell add on's but some more help from high up would help.

    Cons

    No chance of progression
    Boys club
    Like to hire upper management externally who don't know the customers like the staff who want to progress do
    High sales targets with no reward. All stick, no carrot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your sales assistants say. They know the customers better than you do.
