An entry level employee at Gamestop greets customers, discusses video games/systems, organizes games, and rings up products. Elementary isnt it?
Then why is it that in about 7 months of applying for this entry level position in Hinesville GA have i not gotten an interview for a minimum wage job? I even indicated in some applications that i was willing to do part time. (At that gamestop its probably the only thing youre going to get, )
They cant possibly judge me to be incompetent without violating the law. I have extensive video game knowledge and playing experience. Ive owned almost every system since NES, and have above average computer knowledge. I have no criminal record.
My age represents the video game playing populace fairly well. They see me in the store often, they know im familiar with the surroundings of the store.
They do this to me after i heard from the manager herself (maybe that's part of the problem) that they were hiring during March/April. I go there frequently and occasionally see new people. I have also noticed an older male manager there.
The workforce seems disproportionately female. Ive noticed this in some other retail stores in Hinesville. Ive seen only three men there who were non-managers and 4 total.
Even if Gamestop wants to hire women simply to attract men to their stores, which i heard as some rumor, you cant reject me simple because im male, if thats indeed what they are doing.
Whats even more annoying is that, as I observed the women over a period time, I quickly realized that most of them hardly knew anything about video games, or current or soon to be released video games!
I frequently travelled the gamestop at Ft. Stewart from late 08 through late 09. They didnt share this mentality. In fact most of them were older, and it was about even male/female.
I bet if i just sat there for the next six months, continuing to make my interest in employment known, i would see Hinesville gamestop hire three or four more people, 3-4 of them female, and i wouldnt get an interview like im some piece of crap not good enough to work there, already predetermined.
In fact, this is what they are telling me now by what they are doing. They already screw me over on defective merchandise and now this. Gamestop continues its ripoff.
