An example of what I have seen come from Geek Squad in Years Past

Before anyone posts a comment about this computer possibly NOT being from Geek Squad and that I am basing ALL my Geek Squad opinions just solely on this one single machine, just know I have been doing this kind of work for over 10 years. I have seen first hand what many Geek Squads have done to machines, either from clients who brought me machines previously serviced by the "geeks", or by experiences shared by others here on YouTube, by customers and even news outlets. Also, do understand that I did work for one of Geek Squad's competitors, Staples EasyTech, making a whopping $7.75/hr and have seen firsthand what goes on behind the counter. ALL these retail PC repair chains are more concerned about $$$ to fill their greedy corporate pockets, and could care less about the quality of service/repairs, and could care less about employees. I worked at Staples for 3 months, and it wasn't for good pay, but rather to see what goes on behind the scenes. I would have been paid better working the registers at Walmart or Target. This system came to me with an incomplete messy reinstall of Windows XP. The technician did not format the hard drive before reinstalling, resulting in a jumbled up mess of files. No updates, service packs, or drivers were installed. I'm not 100% certain this was a Geek Squad repair, but that fresh pink Best Buy sticker on the back of the machine is a clue. This is not the first time I have seen a system come to me fresh from the geeks in this state of condition. If you want to argue that this is not a Geek Squad repair, I never guaranteed that this particular job was from the Geeks, though I have seen similar work come from the Meek Squad in years past. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please respect me and other viewers by posting clean comments with no bad language or name-calling at someone.

Is I.T. Dead? Is the Computer Technician Job Not Needed?

I was asked this very question. Eli the Computer guy put a video out about the Death of I.T. and it was definitely a very interesting topic. I definitely fall in between on this specific topic and I think I had a lot of valid information to provide here. Let me know what you think. ------------ Thank you for visiting my YouTube channel.
