On Thursday April 7, 2016 Gear-up sponsored a tour for Information Technology students at RCHS to travel to Geek Squad City located south of Louisville. Geek Squad is the Service Division of Best Buy Stores. The City, as it is known is where broken electronics i.e. desktops, laptops, tablets, phones are sent for repairs. These devices start arriving at 5:00 A.M. via UPS and start finding their way to the many streets (aisles of work benches divided by manufacturer names) that make up the downtown part of the City. Secret Agents (dressed in the stylish outfits of G-men from the 50’s, badges included) begin the process of repairing these devices. Turnaround times on these devices are shortened due to the large quantity of parts made readily available to agents from right in the city itself. Once completed repaired devices are again shipped out via UPS till 9:30 P.M. and returned to their waiting customers. Students that attended were also allowed to dine and relax (Game room where they further developed their skills with various Xbox’s, PlayStation’s, etc.) with the Agents of Geek Squad. All this and more was just another day in the City.
