Gamestop employee, during and post employment. Like watching a plane crash in slow motion.

September 4, 2007

YouTube:

These are video blog posts’ from “rammad27” from while he was working at Gamestop up until a little while after he was terminated. I believe he still doesn’t know why he was terminated. I know there are a lot of videos here, but it is very fascinating to see how a guy can go from basically liking his job to despising it over the course of a few months. You can’t help but feel bad for him, as he seems to be the kind of guy we all hope would be behind the counter when we go to Gamestop.

So if you really want a PS3 just hold off, you don’t need it right now, mkay, it’s not that important. There are other things in your life that are more important than that.

    Dear Rick,
    This is Richard aka Rammad27, I stumbled onto this page by searching my channel on yahoo; I was just looking to see what would turn up.
    I am amazed that you wrote about my video blogs and kept tabs on which ones would be the topic of Gamestop. It means a lot to me see this here. I’ve gotten a lot of comments on YouTube, both negative and positive, but this is something new all together. Thank you for making this blog/page. I really hope more people will see this and be exposed to both sides of my previous job. Thank you once again. Take Care.
    -Richard

    P.S. I noticed you put a link that mentions more about Amber Belkin, Thank you. Even though it’s almost been a year since it happened, we shouldn’t forget.
