When on the outside looking in, GAME looks an amazing place to work, however the management treat the staff like dirt, and are deliberately pitted against each other by management through "pot stirring" and the use of other members of staff as "spies"
Hours are meant to be giving out based of KPI's, so theoretically if you are good at sales your hours should be good.
Breaks are a joke, if you even get one, you will be called off them more often than not, or told to only take 20-30 minutes of your hour break (not getting paid for the extra half hour of work)
however favouritism is a massive thing within the store and hours are always giving to 2-3 specific staff.
you are expected to work past your Rota'd hours with no pay and can stay up to an hour after hours tidying and not paid for it.
You can be promoted from within the company towards Senior sales and above, however, this again is looked to towards favouritism and not based on knowledge within the store or KPI's
It is quite difficult to plan your social life around your rota witihin GAME, as you are lucky to get the weekly rota the day before the new week starts, sometimes giving you less than 12 hours notice before your next shift.
The only good thing about working here, is the people you work with, and the 20% discount on products
discount off of products
poor management, favourtism, poor pay
