    Update: How do I become an organizer? Teamsters

    Check with your local to see if it has an organizing program and sign up to be a volunteer member organizer. This will allow you to see an organizing campaign from the inside and gain experience if you wish to work for the union as a full-time organizer. If your local doesn't have an organizing program, check with your Joint Council and volunteer to help out on one of the Teamsters national organizing campaigns. If you have organizing experience and want to work for the Teamsters Organizing Department, you can send your resume to:

    Organizing Department
    International Brotherhood of Teamsters
    25 Louisiana Ave. N.W.
    Washington, D.C. 20001

    Update: Buy the extended warranty or walk the customer. Did you ever wonder why you are pushed so hard on buying the extended warranty? The rest of the story... If an employee cannot add the extended warranty to the sales ticket, he/she gets in trouble with the sales manager. It is better to "walk" the customer and not write the ticket than to take the beating on not being able to add the extended warranty. The customer gets so upset with the employee, they walk! Is BBY running out of customers? You make the call or just look at the stock price.

    Update: do you know the name of the HR support line? Would you believe it is called "EGO". How interesting....

    It looks like you sleep like a baby. What is your compensation? Now I know why nothing keeps you awake. Sleep tight!

    Update: leadership is working resumes. The hours, the promise, the COMPANY VALUES are all in question. I was in a store on Wednesday and was able to talk to the "sales floor leader". The pressure is at the highest level, the sinking ship is taking on water and everyone is ordering scuba gear and extra tanks. The "freeze" is coming soon and most will be jumping ship. Long live the "Company Values". Embrace Challenge and Change! (if you were an employee, this was crammed down your throats)- great for the Golden parachute exec - they never worry about the next paycheck. Just look at the most recent top 4 exec. $12 million bonus to them. Don't you just love how they pay the exec extra $$ not go leave, but if you work an hour of OT, you may be fired.

    Update: Business as usual for BBY. Conference call after conference call and "no action". The customer continues to be last to be considered in any of the solutions. I wonder if BBY is blaming the customer for all the problems? You make the call.

    Update: The customer service levels have already dropped. Frustration is setting in "internally" and also with the Customer base. Long hold times, delays on service dates, etc. No plan to improve based on the layoffs. Techs are setting at home, waiting tell August (severance) day. Does anyone care? What would you do if you were a customer on your next major purchase? I would do the same.

    You are owed back pay at 1.5 x hr rate x hours worked and not paid. How many years did this go on?

    Update: Best Buy plans to hire 500 employees for its Geek Squad with the stipulation that they each new worker holds an advanced degree. The move follows a mass layoff in the division earlier this month and build on a growing focus by the company into small business services after it snapped up MindShift Technologies.

    Did the founder of Geek Squad have an advance degree? NO. Time is ticking for the dedicated employee...Representat...

    Update: The newest twist is the dedication of the techs. Many techs were working off the clock to take care of customers and meet the demand of the Corp Objective of "NO OT", did BBY turn a blind eye to this? Where was HR? Another example of needed representation. You should contact your state Labor department and file a complaint ASAP. This includes current and displaced employees. Corp cannot retaliate against you, this is also against the Law.
