Thinking about applying for a position at GameStop? Not sure what to expect? Here are some tips that will help prepare you for their hiring process:

Play the game

In order to get a job at GameStop, it's crucial that you have experience playing video games. Employers will want to see that you not only are knowledgeable about their products but that you also use the products in your personal life.

Also, customers might want to know what you think of each game and which ones you like the most. To best inform and direct customers, you must have extensive knowledge about the games, which requires having played them consistently. If you don't already actively play video games, you might want to reconsider and look for a job that is better tailored to your interests.

Know the game

A great way to start the hiring process on the right foot is to do research on the company so that you can impress the interviewers with your knowledge and ability to learn quickly. For example, it would be helpful to know that GameStop strives to stay customer centered, maintain a competitive mindset, encourage hands-on leadership, take personal responsibility seriously and embrace change as opportunity.

In addition, research the responsibilities and expectations of GameStop employees. This way, you'll be ready for any questions on the application or in the interviews that relate to your work ethic and career goals. Be sure to align your answers with what they look for in the ideal worker, like selflessness and high-potential.

Love the game

  1. Whether your favorite game is Mario Kart or Horizon Zero Dawn, it's essential that you show the interviewers how much you love video games. Also, be sure to emphasize your commitment to the company and how you would be a dedicated and hard-working employee.

If you actively play, know and love video games and are willing to learn even more, working at GameStop might just be the perfect job for you!
