I suppose it's too much to expect that CompUseless could be any better. The storys about
Fry's certainly makes CompUseless look "average". I read or heard somewhere that a lot
of retail chains make %75 of the business during the Christmas season. I bet theses stores
are on "autopilot" the rest of the year.
The last time I was at CompUseless ( about 2 months ago ), I was talking to a very nice
sales lady who told me that the company had just laidoff half that people that morning!
Certainly sounds like a winner for customer support/satisfaction (NOT!). This was their
newest store in the area, seems that nobody was taking them up on their training seminars.
CompUseless and computer training, now there is an oxymoron if ever there was one.
The glare screen for $99 is a hoot. Their website lists a PS2 Y splitter, just fork over
$39 ( if they happen to have one ).
BTW, ever buy memory from them? You tell the drone at the counter what you want, he writes
the part numbers down, you take the paper to the checkout and pay for it, then take the
receipt back to the counter. The counter drone them calls a manager and they both unlock
"the memory room" and get your memory. Sheesh! Bet they give the counter drone a cavity
search each time that happens!
All I can say is, after dealing with CompUseless and CC for IOs over the past couple of
months, thank God I can order stuff over the Internet!
