I've applied to Gamestop but never got a call back.

My other local game store just has people playing smash all the time. They must make little money and not need any workers. I need a job.

They wouldn't hire me. They always decide to hire a girl (yes always a girl) each job fair that one of the current employees always knows. During the job fairs, I have to compete with around 400+ other people to try and get a job at one of the two Gamestops.

That's not what I'm working at. But I get free bread, lots of the stuff we can't sell we can take for free for our lunch and stuff (sandwiches, pâté, etc).

Grocery store bakeries are pretty much the only bakeries here in the midwest. I don't know where you're from, but it would be hard for someone to make a living as a baker when cheap and plentiful sliced bread exists, and every house has an oven to make all the pies and cakes they want.

there was some more to it that made me laugh really hard when i first heard it, but i can't ask to hear it from my friend again cause i keked the shit out of him.

Worked in GameStop for a while. Got offered an assistant manager position. I quit soon after.

The amount of autism I dealt with on a daily basis is something no human should ever have to experience. I am surprised I even still like vidya.

Don't ever work at a game store if you legitimately enjoy vidya as a hobby.

Also for Christ sake you fucking autismos, your local GameStop employee that you're "friends with" doesn't actually value the 30 minute dissertation you give him on whatever autism you indulge in every time you see him.

you can live on $900 a month easy.

$400 rent if you don't mind living in the ghetto with roommates.

You can get about $180 in food stamps a month, so you only have to spend $120 a month on food.

That leaves $380 for miscellaneous expenses, like phone, car, internet, electricity.

Quite doable. Of course, if anything ever goes wrong you will end up in debt.

I'm surprised more people working in retail don't just drive semi-trucks for a few years, save up 50k and then just buy a cheap house.

>downright suicide since that's the kind of pay you get with full time hours

If you can't get a job that pays for basic living, then you have to resort to more than one job. That's life and plenty of people in the US unfortunately have to do so in order to live, granted many people in the US also live above their means. Min. wage is still piss low either way.

You'd be better off going to work at an assembly line factory and getting paid at least $10+ with $15+ for an over-production or overtime. And depending on the factory that could be doubled or tripled.

I used to work at Wal-Mart on IMS overnight, one of the worst jobs you can possibly imagine, especially with a pill popping boss who had been working there since he was 16 and was only just a manager in some run down hick town. You don't want to be that guy Anon, get out while you can.

Go in the kitchen and make salt-water and inhale it, it breaks away the mucus and fixes the sinuses. Also helps to git rid of toothaches from abscesses and remove stuck food particles or anything else in the mouth if you swash it around.

We don't stock those anymore where i work. But when they did the pleb workers thought of them as cheapskates and i thought of them as smart consumers waiting until the dust has settled to buy the creme of the crop for dirt cheap, i do the same.

I would imagine most places that still sell them now though charge exorbitant prices though, so maybe not so smart in this day and age.

Yeah it was bad. Some days one guy would come in. He was maybe 24-25 still living with his mom (she always drove him up) always wearing a Loki hoodie with obnoxiously large plush horns and he would just stare at the women trying to shop. Asked him to leave on several occasions.

Another guy once leaned against the counter and tried convincing me to play final fantasy because when he asked if I liked those games a I said "no they're not really my thing man, I am more of a sci-fi guy" (bad mistake). After about 30 minutes (not exaggerating) I had to ask him to let me finish putting stickers on the new shipments just to get him to fuck off.

Personal favorite was the family that looked like the people from point lookout (two 30 year old with their mom looked inbred as fuck) brought in a chewed up ps4 with controller that looked like it went through a fucking garbage disposal and wouldn't leave because we didn't cover that damage. The fucking thing was still wet ffs

I literally could write a book of the shit that happened while I worked there.

being socially awkward is absolutely no obstacle in working sales, especially retail. you quickly learn to just treat it as a job and separate the two. unless you're actually paid by commission in which case you are fucked because you need to socialize with your clients to hook them. if you're just behind a counter on hourly wage you really don't give a fuck.

I work IT now for a law firm. It's been pretty easy work, for the most part.

1) I'd rather OWN the game store, than work in it.
2) 7 to 12 dollars per hour quite frankly ain't shit, after a certain age. At least once you finally get sick of living weekend to weekend and counting pennies in your "beer run jar".

Or even needing a "beer run jar" for that matter.

Certifications. Getting a CS degree is hilariously overrated, what you really need are industry certifications.

There's not much way around starting from the bottom, either.

Desktop support and call centre bitch are the two starter positions, from there gain certs and experience for applications, sysadmin, networking (hope you like cisco). web dev, whatever.

Start general, specialise as your career develops. Don't be afraid to ditch your company for another if you feel stuck or stalled; turnover in IT is usually pretty high anyway, and tech requires you to be constantly learning new skills.

I do though.
I'm an assistant manager, manager in training for a locally owned used Vidya chain, with a couple locations in the city, and that's it.
We sell shit as far back as the Magnavox Odyssey, and recent stuff too.
We get all of our consoles, accessories, and games through trading or buying off shitheads who come to us. We're basically just a video-game pawn shop.

On slow days, I'm free to grab some shit off the walls and play it until a customer needs help.

It's a really chill job, and most of my employees know their shit. And they're not autistic hamplanets or anything.

My only real complaints are the fucking shitters coming in to sell me their loose copy of Monopoly on the genesis, and bitch me out when I effectively tell them it's not worth the plastic it's fucking made of.

It's an alright job, much more hauling of boxed from A to B but unlike working in Videogames or consumer electronics retail you really do not have to lie to consumers.
Even when I sell something like Magic or Warhammer. You can really just be honest with the customer and say that you can go way overboard and spend boatloads of money if you want. Usually people are somewhat informed when they ask for Tradingcards or Tabletop and to normal parents you can just sell normal boardgames and they will be happy.

Meanwhile in my local Best Buy equivalent I would have to sell prebuilt PCs that I know have shit tier parts and are not suitable for videogames.

These are things that have happened to me in retail, and I 100% guarantee it's similar experience for any job and probably Gamestop is even worse, based on their jewy sales model and shit client base.

It's a two-sided coin of suck, too, coming from the management and the customers.
>anon you didn't meet your quota of flash drives/snickers bars/butt plugs/whatever low cost thing we've jacked the price up 10000% that no one comes here to buy, yes we know you're top in sales but we're going to have to write you up

In this 30 moments I almost said nothing and was just charging the normal customers. while he was standing in-front of me and talking.

and surprisingly its alaway the guys who act like this the females they usually just buy things or ask normal questions about products.

My boss did actually kick 1 guy out cause he started to throw a tantrum that we aren't selling untranslated Japanese, my boss explained him that it isn't profitable for us and it would cost much time to do something like that.

What are these certifications and how do I get them? I'm currently the 'IT' guy for a small business, and it worries me that beyond the few jobs I've held I have otherwise nothing else to put on a resume.

I did for a while after HS. It was a small shop.

Shit pay, but the things we got away with were Incredible. If I ever gave you a random discount it was because I was off my gourd. I distinctly remember wearing shades one day while on mescaline. I kept sliding my hand in a power glove and tried to sell our Virtual Boy in a Kentucky Derby announcer voice.

>>Anon great job! We can't promote anyone for 6 months, so here's a certificate for nothing, I'm sure you'll frame it.
>Anon good news! We can finally promote you! What's that? In those 6 months you're now qualified for manager? Well we can't promote anyone who has just been promoted for 6 months! (this one made me quit)

I'm a bit confused about this one

Did they say the certificate didn't count for a promotion so they could get away with paying you less and then they decided to retroactively make that certificate valid months as a promotion for a posistion that isn't manager, so they could get another six months or so of paying you as whatever new posistion you would have been given instead of a manager?
>>
>>315287948
Ask your manager if you can get a copy early and pay for it. If he's cool and doesn't know better he might allow it, otherwise its not worth to lose your job for it

Because when I went there for Work Experience the staff were assholes/autists/elitist pricks seemingly changing every day and the customers were either dumb as fuck adults or bratty kids or fucking betas that would constantly try to strike up a conversation about their favourite shitty anime game instead of getting to the fucking point about what they wanted...maybe it's better working there when you're not made to do all the shitty jobs by the staff because you're basically a volunteer slave for two weeks...but fuck...

Favorite thing is occasionally you get to talk to an actually pretty cool person about games. Not everyone who comes in has extreme autism, sometimes they are decent.. Once or twice I wound up playing smash or MH4 with someone I met at work earlier.

If you work in the right (disorganized/messy/bad management) store for it and are careful, it's also tremendously easy to steal shit. So free games I guess.

very much this. I couldn't tell you how many fat showerless morons would come in and attempt to "out video game trivia" my fellow employees and I for the sole sake of trying to justify why they deserved to work there and we didn't.

The worse thing it was entry level quotes from wikipedia.


I remember this one guy out and out sperged when I and my manager said we both preferred different final fantasy games to VII.
>>
>>315248085
Take if from someone who's worked in 2 bakery jobs. It's not as fun as you think and the "cute french girls" you'll be working with are more often 50+ fatass women (the type of person who actually eats the stuff she bakes) or ex degenerates who are there because they can't get a better job with no high school diploma and needle scars up and down their arms.
