Eb games est mon expérience de travail la plus amusante que j'ai vécu. Les collègues sont sympa et il y a une grande flexibilité d'horaire. La raison pourquoi j'ai quitté est que les employés en ont beaucoup sur les épaules pour le salaires et les avantages qu'ils ont. Un employé doit gérer la caisse, l'inventaire, les livraisons, les appels, les gens sur le plancher, le facing, les évènement, etc. On devait parfois resté 2 ou 3 heures après la fermetures car nous n'avions pas le temps de finir les boîtes de la journée. De plus, nous sommes très poussé à faire des vente mais nous ne recevons aucun pourboires ou commissions, mais nos ventes sont évaluées. Le rabais employé est de 15% et ne s'applique pas sur tout et il n'y a pas d'assurance sauf pour les assistants et les gérants. J'ai adoré travailler pour cette compagnies mais après 2 ans j'ai quitté pour un travail avec plus d'avantages. Je recommande cet emploi a tout les étudiants. Prendre en note qu'il faut 18 ans pour y travailler.
Ambiance de travail, horaires flexibles
Pas d'assurance, pas assez payé, beaucoup de charge de travail, temps des fête invivable
the best part about working at ebgames is the people i work with. the employees are great and store managers are amazing and understanding but head office is horrible. this company does not care about it’s employees at all. and there is no reward for doing well, just the fact that you won’t get yelled at.
great employees and coworkers
lots of standing, minimum wage, only 30 minute lunch break, horrible upper management, does not care about employees
Since I was a part-time temp, I worked regulating the amount of people in the store most of the time. It was a tough job, since I would stand for hours at a time, but I honestly enjoyed it in a way. My coworkers were the best part of the job, I loved talking and working with them. It would be about 3-4 hours of doing whatever job, and then a half an hour to an hour of cleanup if you were on closing.
Worked there a few years ago when I decided to go back to school. Left a job in cell phone sales because I needed to cut down on hours and just got burned out being a salesmen. Turns out, this job pushed sales as much if not more than an actual sales job but gave you no commision for it. Basically, your reward for hitting your sales targets is not getting reprimanded. People I worked with were great, but higher level management were a total joke. The fact that I was working with video games didn't take the sting out, in fact it made me hate thinking about video games outside of work. Discounts were god awful too. If you have any self respect, don't work here and just let them go out of business.
Literally everything else
I only worked seasonal but it was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. The management is very supportive and encuraging. The team was welcoming and very helpful during the training process. Definatly a laid back stress free work enviroment evwn during the holidays.

This company goes above and beyond to make you not feel wanted. They do not appreciate their staff, and provide no opportunity for development. Lots of empty promises to ensure people continue to give their lives for the company. The only thing that makes this a fun job is the staff, the pay is basically non existant.
bad pay, overworked, no development
The warehouse was not a comfortable place to work, with the temperature outside always leaking in, which was especially bad in the summer. But the work is straight forward and the people there are friendly enough. It's tedious, repetitive, and briskly paced but it was by no means complicated work. Management very rarely helped their departments besides maybe telling them how much longer they had to work on a particular task.
2 paid 15 minute breaks
terrible insulation for the warehouse, incredibly high turn over rate
Ok job for a young person who only wants part time hours at minimum wage with no responsibilities. No full time position except management level. Managers are ask to do way to much for what they get paid and how they are treated by corporate. Company’s policies are flawed and they do not protect their store managers.
Fun place to work. Perks can be great! Senior management is poor at communicating, avoided conflict questions and deflected operational enquiries when challenged to provide answers or direction.
Discounts on games, swag and fun merchandise
Employee retention and development is not a part of the culture, very litte support from senior management, Pay below scale.
The very first person I was interviewed by was amazing. The staff were great They what kept me there but they all began to leave one by one because of the toxic culture. The manager was horrible and basically had everyone run the store so she could vacation. The store manager also took all of our incentives and gave them back as gifts. I don't recommend working here.
You learn about sweet new gaming stuff
The company is run terribly
You do, note-worthy good deeds and get fired. Then they talk dirt about you after your gone. Childish district management, minimal reward for maximum effort and efficiency. The in house insurance is a total cash grab.
Not taking the job, would have been a pro
Taking the job!
I didn't mind my time at EB Games, but my major problem was that I wasn't given enough time on the cash registrar. Their main reason for letting me go at the end of probation was that "my numbers were not where they should be". I think it is silly that we are expected to make a certain amount of numbers, but don't even get commission for it.
I worked as management for a year. Constant toxic environments, competitive managers ,constant gossip. Excessive work loads. They expect you to constantly do well with numbers while informing you there is no benefit for doing so, other then working more for them. Recently they laid me off without a blink of an eye, after 2 years in the company they decided I wasn't useful anymore.
Some health benefits
Everything mentioned above
I worked there for two and a half years, sometimes the customers are rude and you don’t have a say and sometimes you deal with stealing in the end it’s a low end retail job. If it wasn’t for the coworkers I had I probably would’ve found a better job sooner, the management at a store level was fine but at higher levels it gets a little off putting I got payed minimum wage the first year I worked there and after two pay raises due to the minimum getting bumped up I was still minimum wage.
EB Games has become a sisterhood of women trying very hard to avoid becoming a 'boys club'. I'm telling you right now, if you're a male, you are going to be passed over for every single female who come through. I worked there for eight years. Fully trained as management but refused promotions again and again while they hired females off the street with no experience and paid them higher wages than I had instantly. This place does not care about you, the product the sell or the customer they sell to. Avoid at all costs.
Games are now taking a back seat to collectible junk and toys
Like video games? So did I. Then I worked here. Now...not so much. Never met so many entitled customers than in this industry. Management is poor as well. An analog company struggling to stay afloat in a virtual world. They have resorted to selling toys and knick-knacks as their main revenue. I don't see this company lasting more than 5 years, hope I'm wrong.
At EB Games you have an easy time getting in as a part time employee. Its easy to work there if you are a proactive worker who is self starting. There is always something to do. Being able to talk to customers about games, their experiences and getting to know them is one of the highlights of the job. The pace can be slow but the environment is friendly. Its a great job as a student. The job is not hard and there are no challenges.
I had a lot of fun working at EB games, staff have a good gaming culture. I got along very well with my work colleges as we shared very similar interests in the same games. Work goes quickly when having fun.
