Rude Customer Service in Geek Squad

I have a 24/7 plan s and have been with Geek Squad customer since 2011 with 3 computers. I took my computers in to geek squad to have a hands on service since I was going to be in the Phoenix area. In doing so one of my computers was at the end of repair I purchased  a all in one.I had geek squad transfer and set up computer when I went to pick up 90% of the transferred files were in the file folders all pic were not transferred I might add I took in the back up drive also in case there was a issue. I was deeply disturbed that I could not obtain the information on new  computer vital information that is needed . I requested to speak to the rep who transferred the information. Who placed all the information in one folder on desk top and when you open it 90% of files are empty. I pointed this out to the Rep who name was Anthony (Tony) no last name . His response I had enough of you deal with management and walked away I told the other rep to call management. Both the management and other rep tries endlessy to loctae information that were not in the files. 


I then requestesd a refund so I could take the computers to another location .  I also went on to tell best buy management  in 2011 I had a hard drive fail and the PV. Best Buy were wonderful pulling the information and setting up another computer. I might add management tried to resolve the issue,  and we both came to agreement that I would and management would have another Geek squad rep look at my computer and pull information. 


However geek squad reps might be having a very easy job since others don't have the tech savvy to audit the geek reps and when confronted they become angry a secured person on their job would explain and why folders were empty and all files were not transferred and in general what I received was a rude rep that needs discipline and coaching in his job and maybe training of how to transfer a file information and repairs of a computer. And if this service cant be provided in October 2018 I will end all relationship with Best Buy. Not a threat I just need dependable tech reps that are happy with their jobs in turn complete a repair for a customer and informed the customer of repairs .I might add in all the time I made calls on line to the geek squad in 5 years I had 2 reps who did not compete the repair  however the reps that did make the repairs surpass these 2 and they were over looked. I will not stand for a rep on your geek squad Anthony ( Tony ) at the  TBird store in Phoenix AZ to representative Best Buy and not complete their job without alerting management.


Now the real test should I stay or should I go only management will let me know of what actions they take. for me continuing a relationship with Best Buy and of course the ratings I will Continue  to make.
