Just had a look see at their site. Does anyone here work for them? Really? Do they actually make them dress like that and look artificially 'geeky'?
Oh, and their net ranking is 586,168 compared to EduGeeks 80,989!
And they're a multi million dollar company!!

Aren't these the US equivalent of the clueless weasels that work in PC World-type repair centres? Best Buy iirc.
$diety forbid the recession ever forced me to stoop to that level.

How many 'women in IT' has Gibbo actually met?
And why can't you be pretty to work in IT? I know some very pretty IT techs - some of whom are on this site
Is he saying that everyone has to be ugly?

As an ex-employee of the devil incarnate (DSGi) have to take some offense at that statement. I have known and am friends with a number of technicians at PC-World. I'm aware of their qualifications and skill sets and can assure you they are anything but clueless or weasels.

In fact as a customer you'll very rarely ever meet the actual technician(s) working in the repair center. In stead you'll be constantly infuriated by the 16yo college drop out customer service rep they have working on the 'help desk'.
