Those employees have quotas to meet just like the managers, if they under-perform too badly, the company won't hesitate to give them the ax. Gamestop is grimy like that.
Come on man. Gamestop is Grimy like that? No retail is Grimy like that. Retail is a tough field to succeed in these days especially with online shopping. These companies have to f!ght for every dollar. Actually find me a company that won't fire you if you don't perform to their set metrics.

I thought a lot of gamestops being down the street from each other was just here. That place is robbery. All the locally owned stores here downed their trade in value and upped the game prices to get as much money as them.

@ all these companies that are trying to make the unemployment rate go up on purpose.

I didn't know gamestops across the street from each other was a common occurrence elsewhere. Here there's one in the mall, one across the street from the mall, and one RIGHT DOWN THE BLOCK next to a Target.

It does suck for the normal employees (time to apply at Best Buy ) I know a ton of people personally who work there, but for real though what the hell do you expect when you're buying 360s from homies for 40 bucks and flipping it for triple the price. Does anyone know what exactly a "restocking fee" is?
We have a few malls around me where there are 2 Gamestops in them. Like the top floor has a Gamestop, then there is one by the food court.

Gamestop is trash. Sucks for the workers, always the little people getting the sh*t end of the stick.

the mall near me in dover delaware had an eb and a gamestop in it. when gamestop bought eb they just changed it to a gamestop and there was 2 gamestops in the same mall for years. they just recently closed the smaller of the 2 a few months ago i think.

i havent bought a game from gamestop in years, i buy and sell all my video games on ebay or amazon. i get more money for my game and the person buyin it from me is payin less than wut theyd pay at gamestop so its a win win.

A restocking fee is charged in some places because:

If you're returning an item, it has to be restored/refreshed so that it can be sold as an open item, at a loss...and it also costs labor...

example:

you buy a laptop at $399. you use it, dont like it and return it. it is going to be sold at no higher than $359.

it takes me two hours to fully restore the product so that's another $30. and finally. i paid about $392 for that laptop as a company so i make $7 if i sell one. minus the $70 which is a negative $63 (-$63) that i can only make up by selling something with the computer that is pure profit (warranty). if the computer is at the end of its shelf life, i also have to pay that cost ($392) every month i have it past the contract of having to sell a certain amount of units by a certain date.

Their crooks because people choose to accept their prices... Stop trading games into them and their prices will go up...
Shut up with that "the customers accept being treated like sh*t, not Gamestop's fault " bullsh*t you spout fu*kboy. Gamestop are scumbags and this makes me happy.

when I went to pick up my AC3 guy asked me if I wanted a 3$ warranty on the disk and tried to tell me I couldn't return it if it came pre-damaged.

Thank You. Although, I will say the gamestop I go to out at the mall the same guy has been working at that particular one for a few years though. In some cases, they relocate them to different stores depending on the shortage of employees at said location.

I really don't like messing with gamestop b/c of they're trade-in rip offs. If I go to gamestop and by a game it's b/c it a final option for me which is not very often.
