No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Geek Squad part-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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