I work at GameStop. Can't speak for all stores, but we aren't having a midnight release at my store because they want to save the extra hours for Black Friday, which will be opening at midnight.
Now, this makes sense.
But yeah I go to full time school, and my work shifts go from 5-2 in the morning several nights a week. I have see no problem having the store open late almost every Monday night, til 1am.
Well again, I can't speak for all stores, but every store in my area always gets very low hours to give out, and a lot of the time, never have enough hours to get through a week. This is usually why most people you see working at GameStop never really work more than twice a week, unless they are an assistant manager or something. I imagine if we stayed open till 1 30AM every Monday, we would have an even bigger shortage of hours.
Blame the upper management
Lol i know its upper management, always is. But no joke I've only ever seen 3 people working at my local gamestop. Usually then its still just the same two guys. Bro'ING out with the games behind the counter. Id be envious if I didn't make more cash. --- Psn: Wakaflockamane
