Not bad, not great, but very stable
Geek Squad Agent, Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Altoona, PA – February 15, 2016
I've worked for this company for many years in many capacities, and I can say that it's not a bad place to work (experiences vary greatly on locations).
The company in general does indeed care about the employees and their experiences (which is enforced by reviews, boards, contact with corporate leaders etc.). Management is where the line becomes fuzzy as some managers work their way up in the company, and some are just placed there because of experiences. Much management does not know anything at all about the culture, procedures of experiences (nor respects them) when they let outsiders work in upper positions within the company.
The discount is pretty nice, and full-time employees get a nice benefits package that includes sick, PTO, TAP, dental, vision and medical.
The pay isn't bad, but you WILL have to work to achieve decent pay. The average associate makes around $10 an hour unless they're in leadership. General managers in the companies make triple digits most of the time.
Overall a decent place to work; however, do NOT seek to work here long-term unless you are DETERMINED to advance within the company. If retail is a career aspiration, the company can be very lucritive and a great place. For high school and college students, it's a great way to earn a little extra cash and get some toys for cheap.
