    I worked at Geek Squad full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Fast Paced
    -Repair Tech's are always experiencing new viruses and troubleshooting demands, favorite part.
    -Okay money for a Retail Position

    Cons

    -Mostly still a sales position, so don't go into this if you're serious about hardware/software repair. Chances are you'll be selling services about 95% of the time when you start out.
    -Definitely a Fraternity environment, which can be a good or bad thing.
    -You can work at Geek Squad/Best Buy for 5 years and still have the same position. It's all about who you know and I know Crackle.
    -Even if you do excel in your job, the chances of upward mobility are pretty slim and there are literally 100's of other people in the organization going for that position too.

    Advice to Management

    You can definitely tell which Best Buy's are fun to work at by the Management. It translates to happy employees and better sales in whole.
