    Pros

    - You have a lot of fun playing and working at the same time - quite a chill job and management actually care about you - if you enjoy this hobby it is a great job to have

    Cons

    - There is no advancement in the job unless you enjoy moving around the country or want to move to there HQ - might have longer hours due to games night lasting up to how long your particular warhammer shop says for. - might have to deal with complicated customers - no discount of incentive for relief workers to sell more

    Advice to Management

    have an incentive for relief workers to work harder with a benefit

    I worked at Games Workshop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, fantastic benefits. That's it.

    Cons

    Management is full of deceitful people who set you up to fail. They will fire employees with very little reason, and will smile at you in the face while they stab you in the back. Do NOT trust any of the employees. It is a company built on the idea that if you are not a good fit, you are not worth keeping. They are obsessed with everything but work performance. If they don't deem you worthy of the Games Workshop name...

    Pros

    Pay, constant day, great benefits

    Cons

    Started to feel like a cult, management are shady, I was let go out of nowhere, my account base that I was given was bull crap, workers are fake, felt like I was set up for failure from the jump, no real advancement....

    Advice to Management

    provide better training , don't give a new employee accounts from veteran employees, be fare across the boars, don't be shady

    Pros

    GW is a unique and quirky place to work. Managers want to support their staff and there are lots of opportunities to develop and progress. GW has a very diverse workforce allowing fora variety of experience and insight.

    Cons

    Needs to catch up with being a big business. Some senior managers are very stuck in their ways.

    I worked at Games Workshop part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly training involving customer service, sales, the companies products etc. Often conducted in the form of role playing exercises. Co-workers were nice and shared similar interests. Often spent time together after work as well.

    Cons

    Weekly training was unpaid for part timers. At peak times it could feel like the store was understaffed.

    Pros

    Passionate people throughout the company, many of whom celebrate your success as much as your own. Support is readily available for those who need it.

    Cons

    Decisions seem to work on a pendulum basis, which can lead to a lack of stability from higher management. Sadly ego often seems to be a leading problem during any interdepartment disputes.

    Advice to Management

    When decisions are being made that impact multiple departments, give staff a clear indication of what is going on and the overall goal to be achieved. The constant chop and change helps few.
