About Game Stop
GameStop is committed to delivering great games to customers, regardless of how and where they play. Whether you game on the go with a mobile device or spend hours console gaming with your guild, GameStop is the number one multichannel video game choice.
Ranked 262 on the Fortune 500, GameStop is the world's largest multichannel video game retailer. GameStop's retail network and family of brands include 6,627 company-operated stores in 17 countries worldwide and online.
GameStop offers customers the most popular games, hardware and game accessories for next generation video game systems and the PC. In addition, our buy, sell, trade program creates value for customers while recycling products no longer being played.
We pride ourselves on the fact that customers are coming to us sooner and staying with us longer, and our culture, guided by a set of core company principles, ensures we always match our knowledge with enthusiasm.
Stay Customer Centered
Execution at the store level ensures success at the corporate level. That’s why we think of our organizational chart as inverted, with stores at the top. The ideas and execution that inform our strategy and drive our success come from customers, our associates and all of us who are committed to listening.
Have a Competitive Mindset
We seek competitive individuals who demand the best of themselves, who constantly strive to meet and surpass the next challenge, and who set the bar continuously higher. We are in a fast-paced business that demands much and delivers much to those who always improve.
Encourage Hands-On Leadership
GameStop management is deeply involved in both long-term strategy and day-to-day operations. We lead by doing and work diligently to engage everyone’s intelligence for effective solutions to our challenges.
Take Personal Responsibility
We are in the game business, but GameStop isn’t a game: it is a business that we take seriously and we realize that our shareholders expect the best we have to offer, just as we expect the best from ourselves.
Embrace Change as Opportunity
Video gaming is an industry of change. We are ready and willing to both initiate bold changes from within and respond aggressively and thoughtfully to external changes beyond our control.
This approach is understood and valued by each of the communities where we operate. It also embodies our commitment to shareholders, associates, vendor partners and customers—to constantly strive to increase our value at all levels, and foster growth and opportunity today and in the years to come.
