it's not just geek squad. a friend of mine is a department supervisor, and he's getting the ax because they are merging his department with another one. He's not sure if he wants to take the severance and find something else, or try to get something else with BB. I suggested to him to go with option A.

No kidding. Best Buy in general doesn't have long to live.

Yeah, but they've got high-end IT skills -- hardware assembly, network repair, software upgrade and maintenance. Exactly the sort of expertise that's still in demand. It probably wouldn't take much more training or certification for many of them to enter the very lucrative industry of video game design, in fact, since many of them actually worked with all three major gaming systems within the Best Buy stores. A programmer who's able to seamlessly move between designing on the Wii, the PS3, *and* the XBox? Dude, can you say golden ticket? Yeah, once word gets out that there are lots of former Geek Squad employees available on the market, you'll see the big tech and gaming firms tripping over themselves to snap them up.

I can't understand why Best Buy would be in trouble. Doesn't everyone enjoy paying 3 times more than they have to for a product ?

The only allure to shopping at Best Buy (and one I've taken advantage of in the past) is ridiculously generous financing terms. If someone's going to let me hold on to my $3,000 for an extra 3 years and earn interest on it, then I'm happy to oblige them.

They are canceling and/or rescheduling far out into the future appointments for in-home installations. People pay big money to have geek squad installations to their home. I seriously doubt that a installation cost Best Buy money. I can see the logic of removing employees who don't have enough work to do but when you have to reschedule an installation months out it means Best Buy is LOSING money. This company is now being run by morons who don't want money? Or they just want a short term stock uptick so they can sell.

2012-07-06 11:58:32 AM
Well, it won't be long before all Best Buy employees get the ax. They've already closed hundreds of stores. I'll bet the employees participating in the con-call heard something along the lines of "In order to realign our business priorities, so that we may continue to add value to our customers' experience, we are making some important and exciting changes in our staff structure. Your manager will fill you in on the details sometime today."

The cowards can never be up front about laying off employees anymore and their dicks won't get hard if they don't present some absurd biz-speak flower song.

He'd be wise to take the money and run. Best Buy is well on it's way to joining Circuit City.
 
2012-07-06 12:00:12 PM
I still remember fondly when the first few Best Buys started appearing in Michigan in the early 90's. If you wanted to find a good selection of games (Amiga!), it was the place to go -- and you could get things at a really good price.

But then something happened, and the place turned into soul-sucking, greedfest of corporate incompetence that it is today. Just seeing the store logo at this point makes me cringe. I went into one for the first time in years the other day, and it was like walking into a dark, seedy, haunted village. I think I was there all but 30 seconds.

/Circuit City, at least, was always brightly lit in its evilness

There is another benefit: they're cutting costs on a lot of their DVDs occasionally just to get rid of the backstock. Outside of that, there's nothing left to them. In a year they'll be gone completely.

[ Open on interior, computer store ]

Customer: I run a small business out of my home, and I'm looking for a personal computer with a Pentium Processor.

Leon: Well, this computer over here really kicks ass. So, will that be cash or charge?

Customer: Th-this is nice, but it doesn't have a Pentium Processor.

Leon: No, but you got to ask yourself, in 1997, who really needs one of those Pa-sonium Pa-cess-isers?

Customer: Pentium Processors. And, yes, I do.

Leon: Yeah, but this computer isboss! [ mumbles ]

Customer: It may be boss, but I need a Pentium Processor. Do you even know what one is?

Leon: Well.. I-I worked in this store since it was an Orange Julius, so.. no, I don't..

Customer: Well.. can I talk to someone who does know?

Leon: Sure, I'll get someone.. [ he walks to a back room, then resurfaces a moment later ] No one knows.

Customer: No one in the store knows what a Pentium Processor is??

Leon: No, no. As a matter of fact, I asked a lot of people. In fact, Doug the manager told me that you're probably a crazy street person coming off the street, just talking gibberish words.

Customer: Pentium Processor isn't gibberish! Anyone who works in a computer store should know that!

Leon: Are you calling Doug, my manager, a liar?

Customer: This.. this is ridiculous!

Leon: I'll tell you what is ridiculous. I'll tell you - you know, in this day and age, for a crazy guy to come in this store asking for a Kryptonite Processor-izer.

Wallace: [ entering the scene ] I'm sorry.. is there a problem here?

Customer: Yes, there is. Are you Doug, the manager?

Wallace: Uh, there's no Doug working here. I'm Wallace.

Customer: [ confused ] Okay, well.. this guy told me you don't have Pentium Processors.

Wallace: [ pointing forward ] Well, here's one right here.

Customer: [ relieved ] Thank you!

Wallace: Sure. Pleasure to help. You got this one there, Leon?

Leon: No problem, Doug! [ Wallace exits to back of store ]

Customer: His name's Wallace!

Leon: No, I forget sometimes.. you see, my old manager at the Orange Julius is named Doug, and, uh.. anyway, I think I should tell you, the.. uh.. computer you're looking at is for gays.

Customer: What?!

Leon: Gays, gays, gays, gays.. [ looking around the store ] You know what you want? You want one of these computers over here where the food comes out of, you know? It's right here.. [ points to a vending machine ] This is a "Star Trek" computer..

Customer: That's.. that's a vending machine..

Leon: No, no, no.. it's a very tricky computer. If you push A-1, these chips come out like that. But you have to be very smart to operate it, because.. uh.. you have to be kind of like Captain Clark.

Customer: You mean, Captain Kirk.

Leon: [ thinking about it ] Clark. Captain Clark. [ pause ] Do you want an Orange Julius?

Customer: [ upset, looking around frantically ] Can we get Wallace back in here?!

Wallace: [ walking back in ] There you are! Is everything alright?

Leon: [ smiling, pointing to vending machine ] He wants to buy this computer.

Wallace: I'm sorry, Sir. That's not a computer, that's a vending machine.

Customer: I don't want to buy the vending machine.

Leon: Aw, but, come on, can't we make him a special deal, or something? This is a good one..

Wallace: Well.. I guess we can call the manufacturer..

Customer: [ furious ] No! I don't want to buy that!

Wallace: I'm terribly sorry, Sir. Was there a problem with this computer here? [ acknowledges the one he pointed out earlier ]

Customer: He said it was for gays!

Wallace: [ thinking how to remedy the situation ] You're doing a great job, Leon! [ pulls customer aside, as Leon exits to back room ] Can I talk to you over here for a second, Sir?

Customer: What is this guy's problem?

Wallace: Look.. uh.. that's Leon. He's a good guy. He used to work at the Orange Julius that was here before..

Customer: Yeah.. he told me..

Wallace: Well, when they closed the Orange Julius, he wouldn't leave. So, the day we moved in, we found him sleeping in the back on the floor. He stood up with a cup of nails and said, "Uh, do you want to buy a cup of Orange Julius?"

Customer: [ shocked ] Oh, my God..

Wallace: Yeah.. so, just do the guy a favor - buy the vending machine.

Customer: What?! No! I'm not..

Wallace: Look, it's not that much money. It's, like, $3,900.

Leon: [ walking back in ] Doug? Doug? I just got the paperwork started for this Star Trek Potato Chip machine computer..

Wallace: [ encouraging ] Alright! Good job, Leon! Will that be cash or charge, sir?

Customer: [ angry ] I'm not buying the vending machine!

Leon: Look, Mister, you seem nice, but.. the truth is, I don't, I don't got much, you know? [ piano music over background ] A couple years ago.. I was working.. at Julius, and I was a bigshot! I really was. But then they shut us down.. and I tried to open my own Orange Julius, but everyone got sick, really sick, and some died and everything. But.. I don't know.. maybe I'm just not a lucky guy.. and, and, and, and.. maybe, a guy like me doesn't deserve anything like that..

Customer: No, Leon. You're a wonderful man. With a big heart. And I think today's your lucky day. Because, I'm Samuel K. Julius, grandson of the founder of Orange Julius.

Leon: [ excited ] YOU ARE?!!

Customer: Yes, I am. And I think you're just the man to head up our brand new European division. How does that sound, Leon? Would you like to sell Orange Juliuses in Germany?

Leon: WOULD I EVER!! [ hugs customer ]

[ cut to Leon working counter of Orange Julius in Germany ]

Leon: [ Says "Welcome to Orange Julius" in German ] It's a dream come true!!

I am in a substantially worse situation. My television malfunctioned and, to allow easier access to the repair technician, I disconnected all devices from it. If I am unable to arrange a timely appointment with a Geek Squad representative I do not know how my Nintendo Wii, my Sets Saturn, my Sets Dreamcast, my Microsoft XBOX, my Microsoft XBOX 360, my Sony Playstation 3, my computer, my audio receiver or my antenna will be reconnected once the television is repaired.

Before Best Buy came along, prices were much higher for electronics because of the smaller businesses. Everyone hated Best Buy and Walmart for hurting the high-priced, but smaller, competition. Yet we all flocked to those stores to save big bucks.

Then the internet came into its own and we saw prices drop even lower. Best Buy made some bad strategic moves by building too many stores and jacking up prices.
However, it is in the works that they are going to be shuttering a lot of stores, and having their bigger ones act as satellite warehouses.
There will be smaller stores around town, which may not have that TV in stock. But they can deliver it to your house in a couple hours.

Hopefully they get their shiat together.

We could be in the middle of a boom bigger than Reagan's and Clinton's combined and Best Buy would still be falling apart. Their business model is already dead, it just hasn't stopped moving yet.

The only difference is, thanks to the House Republicans' Double Dip, the employees don't have many options to land somewhere else.
