Hi.
I graduated high school 2 year ago and started working as a car/truck/tractor mechanic at a local salvage yard/tow truck company, I occasionaly do minor PC related jobs on my spare time(like recovery, virus scans and occasional part replacements) and I help my mom out at her store(pets) sometimes, I dont take payment from her though. I used to drive a taxi in the weekends, but I quit due to late work hours and there was a lot of difficultys dealing with drunk passengers(decent pay, but a lot of work and rarely time to rest). With my other jobs it just didnt work out.


I get decent pay, Im not attached, Im not realy a big spender and I have time to spare so at the moment Im happy with my economy. I have a passion for cars(specificly 60-80's american and european) and i currently have 2 projects(1962 ford taunus 12m and 1989 VW scirocco GT) that costs way more than the PC hobby.

Norway has high standards for work, health and safety so I guess I make more money than most with similar jobs in other countries.

Best Buy Computer Sales Associate
It's my first job outside the family business. It could be much worse. At least my Co-workers are hilarious, and my bosses don't hate me. Customers are the only negative of the job.

Every Best Buy is different... My first job was geek squad and got a little promotion to driving the bug out to peoples houses and fixing computers... I actually loved the job as I worked on my own schedule, no direct manager watching over me, paid gas, car, and cell phone, and the one on one with the customer gives you a more satisfactory feeling knowing you did the job right and having the customer happy...

It was a real job but then I got a clearance and now work for government contracting and decided to go back to doing Best Buy part time...
Going back to doing geek squad in-store part time gave me a negative taste of what good customer service should really be like...
Managers would throw me on the floor, and treat you as a number to whom can get the most sales with the most attachments... and would get scolded if you didn't attach a service plan to it...
Even people who are dumb as bricks can sell without knowing much about what they are selling... One sales associate would yell at their purchasing customers, "IT'S GOING TO BREAK" to force them to buy an accidental service plan...
Of all the horror stories and idiot sales of both best buy associates and Geek Squad, I can attest to them...

Having enough of wasting my time, and Best Buy limiting their discount to 50%, I then quit and have a negative feedback on the company; other than the Intel Retail Edge and crazy partying employees... I would not be surprised if Best Buy goes out of business simply because they are forcing sales and not providing the right customer service...

My motto is to provide the right product, warranty that product with good customer service(even if it jumps into the grey area), and love what you do...

Sorry for my little rant but back to the topic, I work for government contracts doing IT support(broad but confidential) and pray they do not end the contract and continue renewals or else i'll be back to working at Best Buy lol...

I am a jackass of most trades. I do auto-mechanics and in-home computer repair. I also just had to sell a cell phone store. I do all this while going to school full time. I also have several cars that is way more expensive then pc's. My one car I might have to drop 5k into the motor. Damn cars and computers are addicting. thumb.gif
