...at Gamestop? I was thinking about applying there this weekend, since one of my friends knows the manager. Would the manager consider hiring female workers to attract customers?:roll:

Yup. You will likely have an easier time convincing people to preorder games as well.

A girl works at the Gamestop at the mall. I like her alot better than the guy with the Mega Man tatoos.

From my experiences at Gamestop, video game knowledge isn't a requirement. More than 60% of the employees I've come across barely know the differences between the three major consoles.

Depends on the manager. Some will think "hey, an attractive girl who knows about video games? She could fit perfectly here!" Other managers will think "I don't think the customers will trust the word of a girl over a guy, so she's out."

Exactly. I know about a lot about video games, but it's all about selling the product. General knowledge of video game is a sufficient enough requirement in my opinion.

No one said anything about an ATTRACTIVE girl
lol
ok im not doubting miss nicole's looks but not every girl is pretty out there.

what would the manager say to an ugly girl who wants the job?

Dye your hair blue and get a lip ring. Then you'll get the job. Gamestop hires more weirdos than Hot Topic. But you'll never be a manager. You have to be a cleancut arrogant doughboy to go that far up the ladder.

only if you wear low cut tops and short skirts then youre in. there are chicks that work at gamestop just be prepared to have random customer get attached to you and then cause you to lose your job because of it.

I managed a Gamestop many years ago. Especially during holiday season....one at the counter/register and one on the floor. But they were both gamers. Know your stuff and you're fine....unless your work ethic sucks.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

When they premiered the video on AOTS, he said how cool it was to play with those guys. Nobody ripped on him so it seemed like he was really playing.

Im guessing they will hire anyone thats female since the store managers arent exactly real management material, they act like as big of a horses ass as the normal employees.

Every woman Ive run into at lamestop do not stay there long, usually dont know alot about games and arent very polite.

Wow, that was awesome. I read the title and was thinking in my head, "yea at Gamestop" then I clicked through. That's basically their #1 requirement; 1. Do you have titties? 2. Do you know nothing about games - thus not being able to formulate your own opinions so we can control what you try and sell?. If both yes, welcome aboard!

My friends gf went in to apply at Gamestop a while back and as she was handing them her application her top fell down and her boob popped out. She got the job but she didnt take it out of embarrassment. I couldn't believe it was her haha.

I love the look on the drummers face like, "Shit... Rock Band can teach you that well? Well, I'm fucked."

I don't think your gender will do you any harm OP, good luck if you decide to apply.

That's hilarious! :lol:

I worked at Gamestop for 6 months back when I was in college. It was okay, some of the customers can be a bit much. There was this short, early-thirties, bearded, white guy who wore a cape and sandals who used to come in and talk about Metroid for hours! Yes, hours!

I'm shocked and appalled that we have made it to page two, yet nobody on CAG has posted the obligatory.....

This thread is useless without pics.
