Applying for a job at GAMESTOP tomorrow! Wish me luck?

Post by Thirty3Three on Fri May 10, 2013 12:18 am

Hey guys! Well, Long-story-short, I'm trying to move from one job (which really doesn't suit 'me') to another job, which REALLY suits me; namely, a transition to GameStop.

Let me start off by saying:
- I'm a HUGE nerd when it comes to video games, I know a LOT about them. Compared to the people in my town, I'm sure I'm one of the top 3 who are this nerdy about games, haha!
- The manager knows me, he thinks I'm awesome. Maybe this will up my chances for getting the job?
- They're currently looking for applications/interviewing people.
(Hoping those are good things for me^)

Wish me luck guys!
Any tips on getting the job would be lovely!

If all goes well, I'll grab this job, and put in my two weeks at the current hell-job, where my employees treat me like shit.

Any tips?
And wish me luck!

The best tip I can give you is that GameStop corporate is generally an asshole. They're known to give you 25 hours in one week, and then none for the next three. I wish you luck, but I've yet to see a GameStop store that hasn't followed the trend of the managers and superiors being dicks.

Don't get to cocky about your knowledge during the job interview, since that's a huge turn-off. Also don't lie, but you probably knew that Wink And most important, be yourself! :)

Good luck 333! bounce

With getting any job in particular it's all about having a proper resume for said location, with your skills and knowledge being directed towards it. Otherwise, if an interview happens just be as honest and straight to the point as possible. Knowing a lot about video games is key, that along with customer service and handling cash. I'd say if you have experience in at least two of those categories and the manager already likes you then you have a nice chance.

Kamina good luck.

Guys, thank you so much for all your help and support so far!

I've come with an update!

-Well, he saw my application (one of my friends was a manager, who did VERY well at GameStop. This manager knows her.) He asked how I knew her.

-I had more writing, neat, on the back of the application to expand on thought, in a good way, hoping that helped

-He knows I am currently employed at Starbucks, and I told him that I love my job there [I do], I'm a very hard worker, (I told him that I'm a hard worker on an indirect level, so it sort of snuck into his head), I told him that gaming had ALWAYS been a big passion of mine, and that this job is a better 'fit' for me (Don't worry. I said it in a way that didn't sound.... yeah). I told him I love my current job, but it just wasn't "me". (He knows I'm a very hard worker)

-Before I even applied here to GameStop, we were joking about coffee, and how the coffee shop near his closes before he gets there. He joked, saying I should get him some coffee. I showed up weeks later with coffee!

(Also, the list of 'game knowledge' on the application goes over the line [albeit, neat, still, don't ask me how haha!] so I continued on the back page)

I have an interview next week!
(I'm hoping I'll get the job! It would be a MUCH better fit for me, and I'll work far past my limits if hired!)

You guys think I've got a shot? c;
