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 have been working at GameStop

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Easy Work
    You get to check out games!
    Discounts
    Yearly conference with paid travel and hotel stay
    discounts at Barne's and Noble's also
    Pretty good benefits, even for part time employees

    Cons

    Little advancement opportunity
    Poor training and little performance feedback
    Lack of communitcation between stores makes collaboration difficult
    Very competitive work with little reward for success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two words: Profit Sharing!
    Or at least a better bonus program. Perhaps one built around store volume instead of max salary.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
