Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Knowledge in games is somewhat important, but the ability to upsell and deal with customers is paramount."

What don't you like about working at Game Stop?

"Unrealistic expectations as far as reserves and subscriptions. Move from physical to mostly digital on PC content. Lack of follow-through from upper management (DM etc) on many things. Quite a bit of micromanagement."

"Nothing, really. I find that the way my immediate manager does things is efficient, for the most part."

"An excellent experience in managing a team"

What do you like about working at Game Stop?

"I enjoyed the people I worked with and the ability to advance quickly that the company provided."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"When interviewing for this position the ability to follow directions and to communicate with customers are paramount. Focus should be on finding appropriate customer solutions."

What don't you like about working at Game Stop?

"The business goals involved trading and pre-ordering products but offered little to no incentive to the employees or management team. The location where I worked in particular saw much more traffic but much less sales due to the nature of the mall location compared to stand alone locations."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"There should be a greater incentive for performance and a greater amount of regular scheduling. The total store hours were often very restrictive and should be expanded for better store maintenance."

"A roller coaster but for the most part enjoyable."

What do you like about working at Game Stop?

"I liked the atmosphere and being able to help everyone that walked through the door. When people told me that they were going to start coming to my store over someone else's because of the way they felt important or listened to made the job worth going to. I got to know quite a few of the customers on a personal level which was nice."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Just be confident and don't be scared to speak your mind. More people get hired there for being out going and not shy."

What don't you like about working at Game Stop?

"I didn't like how the company trained employees half the time new employees didn't learn the bare unessential of the paper work side of the company."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would suggest that they set some time aside to explain to new employees the importance of various procedures. I would also suggest they train everyone slightly more then they have to so the people below understand what the people above them are doing."
