Pros

Flexible hours if you are a current student, or looking to go back to school.

Cons

You will work every weekend, and every major holiday without exception.
Management assumes you are incapable of completing any task or finding any other job, and so they treat you as such.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go to college and get a degree before trying to manage other people.

    Pros

    Nice working environment, easy, and fun!

    Cons

    Nothing really, its a great first job if you're up for the challenge. But it is somewhat stressful working under a quick passed computer repair center.

    Former Employee - Double Agent in Stroudsburg, PA

    I worked at Geek Squad full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great People, great learning experience for sales and different type of hardware and software trouble shooting. Benefits: personal days, sick days, vacation, 401k and other little perks.

    Cons

    Managed by kids working for Best Buy. Since it is retail hours will vary and always working holidays. Pay is quite poor compared to what they used to pay. Will interact with poorly mannered humans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the chain of command for Geek Squad. The DCI or Senior should report to no one less than the DFM or equivalent, not the store ASMs or Leads.
