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.

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Interaction with customers and co-workers can be casual/friendly
    Very satisfying to help a customer find a suitable product which they will enjoy

    Cons

    You are forced to produce sales results in order to advance in the company. This includes aggressive upselling to customers whom are not interested in what you are offering (which is borderline harassment in some cases). Sometimes you make customers feel trapped and uncomfortable because of your sales pitching. Selling reservations and magazine subscriptions is truely all the company cares about... if you think the company cares about you personally, you are dead wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is fine, and does a good job of reflecting Gamestop; they only want sales numbers and don't give a damn about anything else. Management does their job fine, given the companies goals.
