Really helps, but as long as you have strong sales skills and good customer service skills thats what matters. Being interested in games is more a plus.
The better at sales you are, the more hours you will recieve. Contracts are a minimum of 4 hours, so expect a minimum of 4 and up to around 30 a week if its a good week.
I was a Christmas sales Assistant in 2017. I liked working there but there was A LOT of favouritism happening. I was quite upset when the favourites who couldn’t work a lot a days were picked when I could work full days any day. Might just be my store but management definitely need to grow up.
Very informal and one to one in the staff room. More gaming questions asked than customer service so prepare yourself. The whole interview took about 20-30 minutes and felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. I feel you need to have good gaming knowledge from the questions asked.
It was a group interview at Christmas and it was to see what your team skills were like as well as seeing if you knew much about gaming.
