Sales Assistant in North West
on 1 August 2022
Fun workplace, low salary
I've found GAME to be a pretty good company to work for. The atmosphere in store is always good and my colleagues are all lovely. My main issue with GAME is the salary.

Below Living Wage, Above Maximum Expectations.
Having worked for the company for a long time, in a few different stores I am confident in saying that the company does not treat its staff well. Since leaving for another job I have had less stress, more pay and less people shouting at me (customers and management.)As the years went by hours given to each store dropped further and further, in some stores they barely passed the contracted hours of staff. The managers that work in the store do not get full time hours averaging around 24 per week, and earn only between 20p and 60p more than sales assistants per hour.Expectations are a little insane, from receiving 3 pages of prices to change alongside a full store rejig, a visit from your cluster manager, 3 new game releases and 26 boxes of delivery with between 20 and 180 items in each, all requiring prices, security tags and seals and then somewhere to go (usually in the back as stores are vastly overstocked with items that nobody wants such as barbies, toys and old consoles), and all this must be done with only 3 members of staff in one day, a total of 20 hours of work, all while serving customers, running social media and answering calls.I had a lot of love for the job when I first joined, having moved up to management over nearly 11 years, and working in 4 or so different stores I've seen a lot there, but as time went on the business got more tight, began treating staff as disposable, and giving more thought about saving money by cutting hours than looking at fixing their poor choices in what they invest in (there are many MANY occasions of certain ranges stock being instore for over 2 years, dropping from hundreds of pounds down to 99p, then finally selling, or consoles being traded in for £45, then being sold for £50 with a free £5 game)

Very great
Paid well no complaints really. The knowledge is what gets you in at the end of the day. We'll interviewed and placed with others that know what they're talking about
Sales Assistant in York, North Yorkshire

Good job little benefits
The work and the environment were great but the benefits and job security were lacking. Not enough hours for the number of staff. Good culture and work can be fun.
Assistant Manager in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

Fun job but comes with a lot of expectation and low pay :(
Most days are very boring as there is not many customers, Upper Management expect a lot from you regarding KPI's whilst giving little pay or motivation - Do not regard mental health seriously enough, nor appreciate the staff enough. Staff members who constantly under-perform and are lazy get treated better than those who work hard. Staff discount is great though and you get to make some amazing friends.

Interview questions

Questions focused on targets and if I could work alone in the store. I was surprised to find that the store often left a single sales assistant in the store with the responsibilities of a supervisor or manager while on basic employee pay. I was not asked about product knowledge and was asked the classic "why shouldn't we hire you", which was indicative of the contents of the interview.
