    Decent job to start

    Geek Squad, Agent (CIA) (Former Employee)

    ProsDiscounts, entry level, lots of support tools.

    ConsNot very technical, very sales driven, pushed to sell like like its a commission job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlign your goals with senior management's vision. Managers too often get stuck in solving small issues like a customer waiting, instead of supporting long-term goals

    Worst job I've had.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThe employee discount was really good. They also had an awesome break room that had a PS3 with Playstation Move, so all of the employees could try it out.

    ConsThis is the most disorganized company I have ever worked for. The store was thirty minutes from my house, and twice they scheduled me but sent me home as soon as I showed up. One time it was because they had too many people, and the second time was because no one had any idea there was supposed to be a training session that day. Four of us showed up for NOTHING. They also had horrible training. I shadowed two different employees for a day who would often walk off without telling me. Then the next day they expected me to sell products I knew absolutely nothing about on my own. Horrible experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees properly. There was no guidance whatsoever, and I would have enjoyed working there if I did not feel completely unprepared to be an educated, successful sales person.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Alright while attending school

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    Pros- Will work with your school schedule (usually)
    - If you want to, you can learn a good amount about electronics. (most of the times this requires initiative.)
    - Employee discount is nice.

    Cons- A lot of stores play favoritism. You may have to get in good with the right people to get promotions, raises, and such. Also, you may find certain people getting written up for minor things while others don't.
    - The raises can be decent for some, and horrible for others.
    - It can be hard to move up, theres really no structure to build employees to advance at the retail level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish a program to give floor staff members that want more responsibility, more. Something like this was tried a year or two ago I believe, but it really never caught on and had no impact on those that applied for higher positions.
