I have worked at two different locations in two different provinces and I gotta say in general EB Games is a fun place to work if you get along with your coworkers and management. However if you are looking for a job that gives steady hours, room for advancement, and job security than this job is not for you. It is perfect for students but not people that require the job to be financially stable. The hours are very short and few. They are only required to give one three hour shift every pay period. So one three hour shift every two weeks.
They look at sales stats more than job performance when giving hours. The lower your stats the fewer hours you get. These stats are based on how many warranties and edge cards you sell per week. You don't get commission or any kind of perk for selling these. As far as staff goes. Most of them are gamers so if you are also a gamer you at least have something you like to talk about with others. Very customer service oriented and a lot of up selling is required.
