Default Geek Squad Install services

My parents in STL need help hooking up and putting together a TV stand with HT audio setup. Geek Squad looks to provide these services and should have knowledge on all the products they will be installing. Does anyone have experience with these services? My parents said they were trying to charge almost $50 per device that is hooked up to the receiver.

This is your best bet to find a local AV company. It will be professionally installed and done correctly. Geek squad is a waste of your time. I speak from seeing people I know personally who have had many problems with them. Please don't put anyone you know in contact with geek squad.

I would stay away from Geek Squad to be honest. They usually send completely uneducated people to help. My only experience with them went terrible, and I wouldn't recommend their help at all. What kind of audio setup are they going to use that would require help? Most of them can be found online with a walk-through help on install and setup.

I had an interview with "GeekSquad" right after i graduated High School and one question I was asked was "Would you feel comfortable installing viruses on customers computers to help generate repeat business?"

I said no and that I was leaving and they forcibly held me in the managers office until I called the police because I REFUSED to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement that from what I understand was supposed to be signed before the interview started but they missed that step.

I would not trust Geek Squad with a rock after that.

So they held you against your will? As in kidnapping? Do you know how big this could have been if you took that public? I mean that’s bullshit they said to install viruses but to attempt to hold you would make me furious. I would call out the manager and every person in that room. I imagine this was before smartphones and cell phone video recording.

It's quite possible that they were trying to see if you'd say yes to the question to see what type of person you are.
