Yeah, I was thinking about, what I'd do if I worked to fix PC's etc.
I'd obviously charge if it took a while to get there, for petrol etc, if it was a visit, BUT, if it was something as simple as that, I wouldn't charge any more than that

No, no one at Best Buy receives commission for anything..

We are not interested in overcharging people or making them feel like their 'screwed' out of their money. When you rub a customer the wrong way, they won't feel comfortable and simply won't return to Best Buy for anything.

We strive to form some type of relationship with them, and that makes it a better situation all around. I constantly have people call in, or come in, who would prefer to speak to me or be helped by me, because they are familiar with me.

Some other employees have that same thing as well.

That is disgusting. The first thing they should do is check that all the cables and connections are in the right spots and securely connected. Although, I guess it depends on the problem that the customer is complaining about.

Part of that video though is the fact that she was a woman and acted like she didn't know anything about computers. We all know how they like to take advantage of someone whom they think doesn't know anything about what they are fixing (auto mechanics especially)
