    Anywhere here an employee?
    i need a job, there is one locally at an upscale mall...i already own/or have owned: 1st gen nano,1st gen shuffle, 2nd gen shuffle, 3g Ipod, 5.5g iPod, MBP, powerbook 12", and iphone. Pretty much the only thing im not comfortable with is the Apple TV, but im sure it cant be hard to figure out.

    Any opinions?

    don't apply at the Newport beach island center. The people there tend to be needy rich douches that treat you like scum till they fuck up thier system, then expect you to save their work/job from the fuck up they did.

    I know cause I went there to get my ipod classic replaced, long story.

    heres the story

    3 - ends up on digg "OMG APPLE EMPLOYEE CONFIRMS _____"

    Before I went back to school, I worked in an Apple call center as a 3rd tier tech and I can tell you that we knew (and got to play with) what was coming out well before it happened. I guess security could have increased since then. :dunno:

    this is vastly different from the retail stores. literally the public hears when all the peon employees hear. Maybe the store manager hears before we do, but that would def be it.

    i've been told to apply, but with school, i can't dedicate fulltime hours for them. they told me that if you're an apple employee, you pretty much have to be available for 40 hours a week, even if you don't necessarily work that much. the genius i was talking to told me to start off as a floor salesman, then try to become a genius. he was telling me about how the genius fronts all the money for the trip to CA for training and everything, but that Apple reimburses the money. i want to be a genius, then move up to being a developer for then

    Not expecting a call back, I didn't do too well.

    one of the employees mentioned i should apply. i thought about it, but i'm doing rather well at best buy and don't want to fuck up a good thing. i would be more interested, but apparently every apple employee has a top secret security clearance and can't talk about anything or they are killed.

    It took them a whole two weeks to call me.

    I just wasn't prepared. Don't remember any of the questions, but just learn their products in an out cause you'll have to be able to convince them that you can definitely sell. Learning advantages over PCs help too, just saying that Apples are kick ass doesn't help ;)

    Well I guess it's a good thing that I keep up with every new product they come out with.
