GameStop, the world’s largest multichannel retailer of video games, today announced plans to hire approximately 17,000 employees nationwide as the company prepares for the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console launches, and the busy holiday shopping season.

The positions GameStop is currently recruiting for include in-store Game Advisors, consumer electronic technicians within its refurbishment operation center (ROC), and warehouse personnel within the company’s two distribution centers. This year’s total number of seasonal hires is in line with the number of hires GameStop made during the same period in 2012.

In the weeks leading up to the holidays, GameStop experiences a substantial peak in the number of customers it services online and within its retail stores. As a result, ensuring that there is an adequate number of talented Game Advisor staff to support this increase in store traffic is a priority in order to maintain the high quality of customer service shoppers expect from GameStop.

“Providing our customers a great experience is of paramount importance when it comes to defining who GameStop is as a retailer and delivering the total value we offer our customers,” said Mike Buskey, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at GameStop. “The holiday season is our busiest time of the year, accounting for approximately 40% of our annual revenue. As we near the 2013 holiday season, and the upcoming launches of the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, it is critical that we attract and retain high quality-talent both in our stores as well as in our consumer electronics refurbishment and distribution centers.”

GameStop’s recruiting efforts for identifying and hiring talented, hardworking and passionate employees for this holiday season are already underway and will continue into December. Interested applicants should visit the career’s section on GameStop’s website, GameStopCorporate/EmploymentListings, or check out the company’s recruiting efforts on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter for a full list of available jobs, descriptions qualifications and application details.

Seasonal jobs offer employees part-time, flexible work schedules during the week, weeknights and weekends. In addition, all employees will receive a 15 percent discount off select merchandise made at GameStop stores and online-savings, which should come in handy when buying gifts for friends and family this holiday season or treating oneself to a new title like Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty: Ghost, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, or Super Mario 3D World.

The GameStop Associate Experience

Working at GameStop is so much more than a retail job, rather it is a chance to interact and engage with like-minded individuals who collectively make up the gaming culture. Whether helping a seasoned gamer make a purchasing decision between the new Xbox One or the PS 4, or assisting a parent or family member as they navigate the shelves of new titles to find the perfect entertainment for a 10 year old, employees play a critical role in the GameStop experience from the minute a customer walks in the door.
