    You don't need anything. It's the kind of job anyone can get. Good luck though! :yesnod:

    I was in a job like that for a few years

    I used to do some hiring at my old job(not eb games however). My suggestion is to have some references ready when you go for the interview. You can possibly get teachers or neighbors to write up a nice letter of reference for ya. You'll be a shoe-in to get the job as long as you don't mess up the interview. Good luck with the job hunt.

    You don't need any qualifications, just don't be an idiot and if they're hiring you should be fine.

    Any retail store around the holidays is a madhouse, you're just confined to a smaller store than most. Good luck getting the job and good luck with it if you get it.
