We don't have Gamestop in the UK, but we have a similar shop called Game. Random story time. A few years back I went in to buy a game:

"Do you have Pokemon Leaf Green/Fire Red in, please?"
"Is that for the Xbox?"
"Wat."

I still do wonder how on earth that person got a job in a computer games store...

Well, I've been on since mid '07 and haven't gotten much more than one raise. I don't know which region I'm in but my store number is 5049.

Oh, and secret shoppers can be terrible. One of my co-workers (We called him beard-face) got one. She looked like she was 30 but really was 16. I think it was a make-up job because she looked lika Angela from the Office. Anyway, she wanted CSI for the Wii which Beard-face sold her without checking ID. Now, the odd thing about that game is that the Wii version is M, but the DS version is T. I don't know if he got confused or they were just busy or what. At any rate he got fired over it. After that, for 4 months I'd ask ID of EVERYONE. If an old man with a white beard and a cane came up and tried to but Halo I'd check ID. I've kinda relaxed since then. Razz

Hah, ahhhhhhhh......ESBR compliance. Yeah we used to card grandmothers with walkers cause that's how hardcore they are with the system, but if the wrong person comes in, is underage, & gets away with breaking ESRB, that associate is 'Das Boot!' & the manager gets a 'first & final'. Rarely rarely happens unless LP has nothing better to do, but, that still blows :/ T
hat whomps dude, you should be getting a raise by mid-April, make sure your 'Jefe' submitted your review-evaluation, & if not, bust some heads! You earned that money dude, take it, its yours! (Troy Lawl.)
@Raya: If it makes you feel better, one day Derek was talking to a guy who comes up & asks: 'You got the Sims 3?' Derek responds 'Nah, its just on PC right now.' Guy goes: 'Is that that new handheld?' >.> I still stand by making people take competency tests before buying technology :X (Or selling, for that matter Razz )

Wow, having to card people that look 30 and over for a game... that blows.

I sometimes don't even card people that want to buy cigarettes or alcohol, provided they look to be close to 30. Luckily my family ain't a bunch of dicks that hires secret shoppers. If anything, I'm the secret shopper and watch out for shoplifters. That reminds me of this one time my buddy Keith 3 teens about 16-17 came in, and couldn't be more suspicious. Huddled around each other, whispering, looking around. Noobs. I told them, "If you plan to shoplift, let us know." Took that from Clerks. Razz

I might make a couple bucks for moving some heavy equipment for a friend :D I'm pretty stoked.

On topic, I've never had a job, though I've only every applied to a gamestop (never got the call back ;-;). Figure it's about time for me to start looking, as now that I have my lisence I can't really use my inability to get myself anywhere as an excuse.

@Smash: Ahhhh, Clerks, I never saw the 2nd one, but the first one is classic ;P That & Super Troopers, probably best 'work training' videos to get inspired to go do a good job over.

@Surge & Falco: Remember to lift from the knees Surge ;P From experience though, if you're looking to get into the business, its all about being a regular customer. Get friendly with some of the staff members & if they warm up to you guys, that's like the best way in.

I need a new job.
I graduated from 2 different colleges; one in 2003, and the second in 2006; it's been about 4 years now, and I'm still working in a supermarket deli.
I'm trying to break into 3d animation, or any sort of art job really, with very little luck.
It takes a hell of a lot of work, but I'm not about to give up yet.
