    I know the payment is really low, but the hell, I'll be a great experience if I get hired. [​IMG]
    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Well, if you do get the job, don't be one of those clerks that gives Gamestop a bad reputation. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hmm, I hope you'll be able to get some inside information on possible delays or pre-releases (so we know if dumpers might get ahold of some games etc.)

    Good luck! I wanna have a part time job like this [​IMG]

    I have no personal experience myself. But the horror stories I hear are enough to keep me away from Gamestop.

    Good luck, and keep us updated.

    What are you talking about, it's all about Mario Tennis. [​IMG]

    *On topic: Hope you get the job, man. Try and be the type of guy who is helpful and knowledgeable, not the jackass who recommends GTA to 5 year olds. [​IMG]

    I heard it is in California. The numbers /b/tards seem to post the most are from Cali

    I've been working at a Gamestop since like late November. I'm only Holiday Help, but will probably be keeping my job as a part timer. I knew no one and easily got the job, most likely because I actually have a clue when it comes to this stuff, unlike most of the twits who apply. Also, aside from being a little clueless from time to time, my manager(aka my boss) is really nice and so are most of my coworkers. Discounts are great and working there is rather easy and stress free, so not a bad way to spend some time during the day.

    I heard that GameStop forces you to shove pre-orders down the customer's throat. So yeah...

    Good luck on getting the job. Let me know the discount if you would please. I am kind of interested.

    Erm... As a newbie (noobie) to the DS scene - Gamestop? I googled that and found a website - at a glance it look like a GameSpot website.

    Can anyone briefly what exactly is it? Before you yell me at look around - it's 8.31am and I haven't slept yet.

    All the best of luck on the job! [​IMG]

    good luck to you, I have much respect for people who work at the game store. just keep in mind that a lot of people do call every day of the entire year about nintendo wii and nintendo ds. just be kind to those calling in, and all will be fine. if you get the job, sooner than you know you'll be working your way up and will be handed the key to the store to close shop at night..i've seen it happen, that's a big step imo.. noble job it is.
