    A Fortune 500 company that cares about its employees by listening to them, and not dictating to them

    I have been working at GameStop full-time

    Pros

    Organization is quick to change/react to the business and associates needs. They listen to all ideas and value every single one of its employees. I have worked for other Fortune 500 companies during my retail career, but GameStop is one who cares even about the seasonal part time associate, regardless of your age, gender, or ethnicity. The company provides resources and tools to its associates and managers in order to succeed. Thus, it is up to each individual to chart their progress and career.

    Cons

    I have not seen anything detrimental.....it has its usual hiccups and headaches other companies go through, but this company is resilient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and being accessible as well as approachable. You are always willing to listen, and don't believe in titles.

    I worked at GameStop part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on games, swag from vendors, able to rent games to try out for a few days, and flexible hours

    Cons

    Lack of hours despite heavy traffic in store, incompetent and iresponsible managers and DMs, ridiculously high turn-over rate, lack of security inside and outside of store, selective policy enforcement, low pay rate from minimum wage, employees and managers have the maturity of junior high school students, having almost no standards when managers bring in new employees, "At will" employment, severe lack of shift coverages due to lack of hours, company offers little to no official training for employees, little promotional opportunities, managers prioritize overly pushing for game reservations, magazine subscription, accessories, etc over customer service....and more!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to renew their entire company operations and take the correct steps in improving both working and shopping environment at Gamestop ASAP!
