GameStop named one of 'America's worst companies to work for'

Specialty retailer receives poor marks from employee reviews; chief complaint is company favoring sales over customer service.

Working around video games all day may seem like a dream job to some, but according to new data, working at GameStop is one of the worst options among all companies across the country.

Working for GameStop is less than ideal, according to Glassdoor's data.

Financial analysis and commentary website 24/7 Wall Street recently published a list of "America's Worst Companies to Work For," with GameStop finishing in 10th place of 11. The list was based on employee reviews gathered from Glassdoor, an online job and company community.

Other retail chains on the list include OfficeMax, Radio Shack, and Sears. Satellite broadcaster Dish Network was named the absolute worst company for employees.

Specific concerns levied against GameStop included regular complaints that the company prioritizes sales above customer service. This is not the first time GameStop has been called out for its business practices. The retailer was cited in Consumer Reports' 2011 "Naughty List" for complaints over its return policies.

As of press time, GameStop had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
