Granted, most people at Geek Squad aren't trained, but who needs to be to to use this software? I have to say I can't believe it. At this point the guy shows up and is wanting his stuff since we said it would be done in 2 days. Using said proprietary digital property without expressed consent of the owner is an actionable legal offense can lead to harsh civil or criminal penalties. So you get assholes everywhere, but most decent people don't try to rip you off and most people I worked with were decent people, but as with anywhere you get some assholes and the assholes tend to get remembered. Now that I'm writing this after so many years, I wonder if that was a set up to entice me to hook up with him.
You can try to give it back, but it would be a giant waste of your time and theirs. I used to work in the cell phone industry years ago, and would see it happen all the time. It wasn't usually one you would want to see. There is a pretty decent pay gap though. The people in the front made 11-13 from what I knew, and the guys in the back made 15-18. We are supposed to use that for 100% of transfers but its not practical and most of the time we didn't use it unless it was a small back up. A big shout out to popeye74uk and BinaryOutlook for the help!!

Then there are the ones who do the repairs. As long as you learn quickly that's the biggest thing, but getting hired just involves knowing some basic troubleshooting. My father purchased an from Best Buy. Yeah huge company with a ton of people working for it. Completely opposite from a counter rep face to face. He was cool with it and we finished in time.
Ok, well, after a series of events I happened to come into contact with the Geek Squad's ultimate boot disk the idiots left it in a laptop of my friend's that he wanted repaired. Now you might ask this is good, and saves time; well it's not and here's why. The more you know, the better a position and better pay you can get. Well, there was a photo attachment on the email that I wish I hadn't opened. They just tend to have a few important files that they need as well as Quickbooks installed. When you bring your machine into GeekSquad they will go through all your data I promise you and upload them to their flash drives if they find things they like. Not sure who's running these GeekSquads everyone's talking about but I worked there since before it became GeekSquad and we certainly do hardware repairs in-store as well as software repairs.
It's not difficult and it doesn't take very long. This is a bit old but still relevant it seems. Also, the Geek Squad doesn't even have the most recent version of it :lol:! Please read this sidebar before posting. I hope that these utilities may be of use to all you wonderful tek people. .
Just delete it and post it in the right place. If you share the proprietary information, monitoring the hash values can lead to evidence against you in a software piracy case. Now product wise BestBuy is great, they have a good selection and reasonable prices outside of sales. Oddly enough the hard drive still read correctly. I had a buddy run another test with location 473 loaded a virus on his machine to see how effective and knowledgeable they really are. I open the email and he pretty much says he's a married guy with two kids but is bi-curious and is looking to have a secret fling with a gay man. I ended up just finding a torrent.
Please reply and tell me if this was useful to you. There return policy is pretty good as well. In any case, that's fine with us, as long as you make sure you understand the difference before posting. They obviously have zero hardware training at all. It was the client, buck naked, holding a beer in one hand and his wang on the other.
When I first started working at BestBuy I was in Geek-Squad, the real geek-squad where you actually needed certifications to work. I ended up kind of fudging that to get it to work, but I told him what I could do and asked if he wanted a cracked version first since at the time it was the only option. If you feel that you posted your story in the wrong place, don't worry. As I said before, he spent a lot of money and at this point I am 100% sure I know exactly the steps to do to fix this and I just need time. You can find it on Piratebay usually or if you know someone at geeksquad just ask them for a copy. You call a tech in for service you pay the fee period.
Which then was supported by us when you had an issue. Best Buy Inc and its subsidiaries have the resources to drag out a long and costly legal battle, which might put unbearable and unrecoverable financial strain on some individuals. The dude had a photo of his family right next to the computer. Particularly if after plugging in the mouse no further diagnostic was covered, because that diagnostic is supposed to cover actual tests. If you use a computer every day and know your way around windows or mac, you know more then the basic customers who come in. Hardware stuff is a big one. However, I do wish they were trained for other purposes and issues that their boot disk can't solve.
