The GameStop Application Process

The GameStop job application is extremely applicant-friendly. If you already have a resume prepared, it should take you less than 15 minutes to complete. If you don’t have a resume, that’s ok too — you can enter all of the information manually.

One of the great things about the GameStop application is that once you create your profile, you can apply for more jobs at their company with the click of a button. This is a very welcome feature, and it’s rare that an employer will let you do that.

To start the application, you will need to provide some basic contact information like your name, address, phone number, and email address. From there, you will need to select your scheduling preferences, education, and cover letter (don’t forget to tailor it specifically for the position to which you’re applying).

At this point, you will be presented with a brief questionnaire that asks questions about your knowledge of games, consoles, portable devices, and computer skills. Though it can be tempting to breeze through these questions, you should take some time to answer them thoughtfully and carefully. Demonstrating a passion and deep understanding of the gaming world can greatly increase your chances of getting the job.

If you chose not to upload a resume, you will have the opportunity to enter your work history. For each position you’ve held, you will need to provide your title, employer, dates of employment (make sure they’re 100% accurate), and a description of the responsibilities you held.

After you enter in your work experience, your application is complete. Go ahead and submit it, and apply for more positions if you like.

How to Get Updates on Your GameStop Application

GameStop does not provide automatic application updates at this time. If you have submitted an application and would like to find out where you stand, you will need to contact the hiring manager at the store you’ve applied to.
