19-20: Grape harvester
22: casting assistant, working for a movie/TV production (they have been calling in casting assistance for some movies also at the age of 23 and 24, but they told me they could never hire me in the company because of the lack of funds)
23-24: working in some projects for video games
25 (now): I could graduate at University and now I am without a job (since april). I have done different experiences and also could get a title, but no one seems to care so much now. I have my own projects to work on, so I don't waste my free time..but you know, after all of the effort, +the will to be indipendent from family and things like these is starting to be pretty "heavy" for me.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that I come from Italy...so, yes, job search are pretty difficult here. Well, not only that...-_-

Nowadays you need some fancy company names on your vita, connections or luck. Which industry you want to conquer?

How was the Gamestop job? Was it a pretty cool, laid-back work environment or did the experience make you hate gaming? I'm thinking of working there but not sure if I should. I've never heard anything about how it is to actually work there.

Honestly, it's highly dependent on the location and the people working there. I mean, that goes for any place, but ten fold for a place as corporate-focused as Gamestop/EB Games is. The location I worked at was wonderful. They pushed you to sell the whole magazine thing, the members cards, and other miscellaneous items, but not enough to deter costumers away. I've heard stories of other locations pushing so much that it literally loses them business. So my advice would be to search out a location near you that is laid-back and very chill, but still pushes retail and 'upselling' items so that they actually make some good money.

It all depends on the people. Verily. My manager was very laid back and accepting, but still knew when it was time to get down to business that it was time to hit the ground running. It was a great experience for selling retail and it actually got me even more invested in gaming because of both the knowledge and the discount (which is absolutely wonderful, along with the benefits of getting memorabilia and the like). Use your discretion and chose wisely, because once you're in, you're in. If you quit prematurely that will look horrible on your record and you most likely won't be able to work at another Gamestop/EB Games ever again. They're a stickler for punctuality, trustworthiness and loyalty.

All around though, it wasn't for me. Nor is the whole retail deal in general; then again, this job wasn't the reason that I didn't like it and it was definitely a good learning experience. As I said, a great Summer job...nothing more, nothing less.
