General Assistant (Former Employee) – England – 31 October 2017
GAME Middlesbrough During this time I was given the job to handle incoming deliveries. I was also on the sales floor giving customers any help that they required, checking stock levels, pricing up, and general store tidy. Also during this time at GAME I made sure I was always there for a customer if they required assistance. I have learnt the ropes in retail now with this work experience.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Sheffield – 22 October 2017
Brilliant part time job to aompliment my fulltime job. management are easy to aporach and talk too. Other staff members are really easy to get one with too. just lucky to be working with a good team. 70% of job satisfaction is the staff memebers and i have been lucky to work with a good team
I worked here for work experience a decade ago, so I can't really do an accurate review for this company. My experience was pleasant enough and the management team were very helpful in teaching me the basics of working life.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – King's Lynn – 6 October 2017
A brand who are overly focused on promoter led environments who pay for store positioning to push their own products. Good rewards offered and a fun team dynamic to match the nature of the products sold.
Customer Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee) – West Thurrock and South Stifford – 30 September 2017
A day typically consists of making as much money as possible (like any business), though the general strategy to sell if make customers to feel as though they are missing out on a unique opportunity if they do not buy there and then. This may also be another sales strategy, but it is often aggressive and made customers feel uncomfortable.
GAME taught me that you can be very persuasive with your language/knowledge of products; convincing customers that what you are selling meets their needs.
Management would often lead by fear. After being at the store for no more than 3 weeks, the manager swore at me for making a mistake which cost the store money. The mistake I had made was something that was no covered as part of my initial training.
Workplace culture was often one of competition; who could sell the most. This was often good/bad, colleagues could be incredibly rude and hostile if you "helped them with a sale".
Hardest part of the job was to remain polite but aggressive in sales.
Most enjoyable part of the job was talking to customers about their favourite games and genuinely helping parents/grandparents find the right gift for their children/grandchildren.
Discount on video games
Expectation to sell certain products each and every day
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Ashford – 22 September 2017
Usually great teams to work with but severe lack of support from higher ups and constant budget changes make it an unreliable and stressful job. Constantly missing display items and receiving incomplete deliveries, store layout changes multiple times a week despite always being understaffed. We're overworked and rewarded with a terrible salary and poor benefits.
Co workers are typically great, always support one another.
I chose to do my work experience here because I like games and I am into console gaming once I got to know everyone I started to enjoy my time working I worked at game for a week and the staff were very polite and supportive
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – London, Wardour Street – 14 September 2017
While I enjoyed talking with customers the most, I struggled to come to terms with the entirety of what was expected of me on the job. Almost every shift, I would be faced with something that I did not know had a particular procedure, so I always had to have someone nearby to take me through it step by step. While normally I'm happy to learn on the job, it was disheartening that I could not handle my position alone after 4 weeks. As welcoming as the management and fellow staff were, the job simply was not right for me.
