Has anybody ever worked for GameStop or EB Games?

I am in search of a temp job, and recently got an application for GameStop. I was just wanting some feedback about the criteria for the knowledge of video games you need, and if it was a nice place to work at. Thanks!

I had a few friends work there, and even one (girl) that became a pornstar :shock:

Anyway they all agreed, it was a terrible place to work. I guess they treat you like shit, and you always required to convince people to try and reserve/trade in games, etc, and if you dont meet a quota you get fired. All the people i knew worked at gamestop, although they are basically the same now since gamestop bought out ebgames.

I worked there for about 2 months... it was allright . You dont really need any game knowledge you just need to have customer service sort of skills.
