Or even just bestbuy.com; have it shipped right to your house. Or cut out the middle-man and buy directly from the manufacturer.

At least a fast food employee cooks or hands you food. All ive ever got from a best buy employee is fake information on the product i am looking at and attitude when i tell them they are full of shit.

What they're actually there for:

  • Stocking shelves: I'm sure there's an automated solution

  • Deterring thieves: CCTV and a couple more guards

  • Telling you which aisle x is in: Use a mobile app connected to the stocking database

  • Putting a human face on the store: If everyone hates them, why bother?

  • Cleaning up: Roomba

If that were my job, I'd be hella careful about asking for mandatory raises.

Their Geek Squad, on the other hand, knows everything about you after you bring your PC in for repair.

Most specialized electronics places usually pay a lot more. The problem lies in best buys business model of dumbed down retail sales. No special orders or inventory of anything beyond the basics will do that. I'd rather support some place that has inventory and has employees who will source shit for you.

They also provide zero incentives for their employees to become better employees - No commission or performance based pay, so no reason to keep up to date on new products and technology, nor to put any effort into assisting a customer.

For those who dont realize it, thats a real thing, they are common in airports. Limited selection and high prices, because thats what you offer when the customers are captive, and the landlords know it too.

Also, it costs much much more to staff a location in an airport vs. vending machines because of security clearance and the extra cost of living for employees (area is usually upmarket, so higher rent, and the cost of travel is higher). Still, it's an indicator of the future if employees become more expensive across the board.

The last time I went near a Best Buy I was gang jumped by 3 people (one right after another) shilling for ComcastCrap. They all got really salty when I told them "No, I'm not telling you how much I pay for my internet. Fuck off".

I'd rather pay somebody $3 an hour to do bugger all than $8 an hour to do a job that isn't needed. And if you're lucky, they may even get tired of living on $500 a month, get a job doing something else, and then they'll cost you $0 an hour.

I think you're missing the point. It's not "wow, this is awesome, we're firing people and replacing them with machines" it's "Wow, minimum wage laws suck for everyone."

What's the point of having a job if you can't live off of it?
