I'd say, be prepared for what you think is going to happen. Men are going to hit on you because you're a chick in games, they're going to expect you to know nothing. But it's okay, because your coworkers know you're more than capable, and they wouldn't have hired you if you weren't.

GameStop is very flexible in that the market is all about change, especially when something doesn't benefit the company as a whole.
Maybe. It all depends on your interest. My only other female coworker was my manager, and she and I both played a lot of video games before working there, and we had a lot of interested women but the job is a lot harder than they'd think, because we often get hit on by some very terrible humans.

90% of the employees at my store were women, and they were extremely friendly. They were understanding with my class schedule and lack of experience. It was the most liberal group of people I had every met in a mid-sized city.

You're on your feet your entire shift, with exception of your breaks. Customers can be very rude and sometimes disrespectful.

Maybe. Only if they've had experience working in the retail environment.

Great place to work at, but the compensation is very low, is the minimum wage, for all the things or tasks you are responsible for.

The managers are very kind, as are the older workers. They want women to be visible (for better sales) and they mercificully discourage the bro atmosphere that is often so common in the outdoors world. The atmosphere is lovely. There is not much flexibility from the top, however, if you might want to work part-time to take on a second job or raise a kid.

Work with HireMInds as a short-term contract only. If you need anything longer than 3 months, go with a different agency.

Any flexibility you get is through your own negotiations.
Maybe. HireMinds is a contracting agency. Frankly, all they do is place you - there's no follow-up and basically no advantage to working with them. No benefits to speak of. They'd be ok for a short-term contract only.

the Kohl's workplace culture encourages and promotes job flexibility. at the store level, part-time employees have some really great optional benefits, such as vision and dental benefits, and flex accounts for child care and medical needs.

This Company is not family friendly, you must be 24/7 available. No work- life balance.
