hard to progress very abusive staff racist management if your not in the click you'll be shut out to feel like an outsider you will take the fall for others who under perform management will cheat the way to meet targets
My two years spent temping at GAME during the Christmas periods were thoroughly enjoyable. My managers were very friendly, as were my co-workers. Seeing as I had a common ground (gaming) with the customers and my co-workers I was able to make friends and enjoy communicating with everyone there.
Seasonal Temp (Former Employee) – Keighley, West Yorkshire – 8 January 2018
As I only worked as a seasonal temp it was worthwhile working here as they accepted me regardless. Day-to-day work consisted of telling people about games and why you'd recommend it. The workload was distributed fairly and it was a fun environment to work in.
Enjoyable work environment ruined by poor pay and unrealistic expectations
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) – Leigh – 8 January 2018
Pay for sales is minimum allowed and scales horribly as you work up the store team as the demands on your time increase drastically. Frequently expected to work in your own time with no compensation. New initialtives are launch with no clear direction. Policie and procedures change on a beat and with no clear indication to what is new.
Employee benefits regarding discount are neglibible as better prices can be found within seconds online. Games can be borrowed but at the threat of disciplinary upto dismissal if you are late to return them.
The working day is very varied which would be good if they gave store teams enough hours to complete task. As it is you are frequently tasked with so much work if you get a slightly busier than normal day you stand no chance to complete work to a reasonable standard and look after your customers.
The most enjoyable part of the job i the people you work with and the media you are working with.
Hardest part of the job is trying to meet unrealistic sales target with zero invecntive to do so
You are selling games and ineracting daily with gamers. Great if you like games
Low pay, frequently expected to work unpaid over hours
The managment are sadly like most retail in that they focus more on KPI's and sales then their staff. The pay is not amazing and the hours can be bad. Management are not good at ensuring proper breaks are given.
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) – Eastbourne, East Sussex – 6 December 2017
Madisons had closed now. But for the time it was open it was a great bar to run. Friendly locals and fisherman. Late nights with locals. Great place for fun and to meet new friends. Food was incredible! Hats off the chefs!
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Crawley, West Sussex – 2 December 2017
Job for the younger folk. Must love games to work here. Early starts and late finishes continually. Despite this, the stress levels don't go too high, as the main tasking is based around service and sales, as opppsed to numerous merchandising or pricing tasks
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 23 November 2017
Before I started work here I had no experience in sales and I was provided the training. I was also provided with customer care as well. I learned how to manage a till and the most enjoyable part of it was that I had a passion for games and it really boosted my sales potential as I had previous experience with gaming.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 8 November 2017
As a gamer and a tech enthusiast this job was extremely work while. being in a job where you can express you love towards gaming and help others this job can be seen as very rewarding through every aspect.
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.
