YES! FOR THE EMPEROR!
NO! I'd rather work in the Warp.
Maybe..... do I get free minis? (yeah right.)
Heh I dont know if this topic has been made before....
But you know the saying... something like,
"I'd rather work at a job I love<3. Than get high pay"
Well... then if thats the case....
-You do get to work with minis everyday.
-You do get a red t-shirt with GW on it~ hah
Since there are a lot of people who love this hobby, would you like to work at a GW store ever?
(Not to diss on anyone who works at one ^.^;;.... SERIOUSLY! NO BEEF!)
Personally I guess being fresh from High School, I'd only work at a GW store for a part time job.

work is a hobby I love, teach it to people and have access to minis? hell yes!
I'd love to work at a GW-- if I didn't have to do that obscenely obnoxious pep talk to get people exited. Every time I hear that speach, It makes me want to strangle the guy saying it.
Instead, I'd much rather work as the Mini specialist at a LGS. A much more relaxed/friendly environment where I don't need to be phony. Plus, I acctully have a shot at this position at my LGS. I am the most miniture savvy regular and there is no one on their staff that really knows minis too well.
But thats in a couple of years.

I will most definately agree with you there, but i would only work as a partr time for either just leaving school or after school hours.Originally Posted by Librarian Augustine

IT IS INEVETABLE
I'd want to work at GW for the same reasons as above, plus the benefit of perhaps acting as a consumer rep so I could get a couple of words in for all of us about their blasted prices. I see no reason that a mini of metal from GW should cost twice what a model of comparable value from a company whose only disadvantage to GW is that they are more obscure. It is bloody ridiculous. I guess you could see me as infiltrating it and conducting a peaceful revolution from within, if it amused you... it does for me!
If there was an actualy GW store around where I live (there isn't for some reason), I might want to, I suppose.

I would work at one so I could beat n00bs, get better at warhammer, have time to paint everything, test play new codexes, get discounts on minis and paints, and help people with rules.
it would be a good part time job
i need to find something interesting to put here
Ok Scotty, jokes over... NOW BEAM UP MY CLOTHES!
I'd defintely do it because it's most likely about as challenging as my current job, would pay about the same or better (hooray for cash!) but financial motivations aside, because I think people should have a chance to learn 40k, and to try it out. It's one thing to read an exciting battle report, and something completey different to have an intense battle. I'd also love to help with getting a tournament together. :yes:

I'm a bit overqualified to work in a GW shop but even if I weren't I'd think twice about it. The GW employees are great guys but they've been reduced to 'glorified' nannies. My ideal of a job is not to run after obnoxious children on a Sunday morning or every day during half-term or summer holidays, which is also the biggest put-off I can think of. The only benefit I'd see in working for GW is the great discounts they get on minis as they pay much lower on plastics and from what I was told they pay for pewter on a weight rather than per model basis.
