I have been working at GameStop

Pros

Offer flexible schedule. Opportunities to advance. Good benefits. Employee discount plan is really good. Interesting product to sell. Good co-workers.

Cons

Poor communication from management at times. Lack of recognition for a job well done often. Pay not on par with similar jobs at other companies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember to thank your employees when they are doing a good job. Increase pay levels for all employees. Loosen labor budget to lower stress levels of management team members.

    I worked at GameStop

    Pros

    Working at GameStop has some great pluses:
    -Obviously working with video games
    -Driving the customer towards certain purchases using advanced knowledge
    -Swag
    -Game checkout policy
    -Manager's conference

    Cons

    And...the minuses-
    -District Managers are irrational
    -Older customers become unruly
    -Emphasis on numbers--reserves and subs
    -Rule for not playing on the demo kiosks--even if it is to promote a game for a customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to treat your Game Advisors like they are slave laborers...create a fun, incentive field environment to increase productivity.

    I worked at GameStop

    Pros

    The fact you got to try out games for a few days was pretty fun. If you're alright at sales you might like it.

    Cons

    The employee discount isn't worth it, the emphasis on sales from management makes it a difficult environment to work in, it'll completely kill your love of anything gaming related.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as a resource, not as a source of cheap labor...even though i guess thats what they are.
