Awesome. They must of changed it. I read about the $500 and $250 being 90 days in but the 25% on some products is immediate. Got lots of family interested this holiday.

Not only that, you get all the latest OS's along with many other softwares for free as well...if you want them.

I have to disagree with the person who said they'd be fine not getting paid though. lol

Week one of CPU training down! It's not bad, but I sure have been tired after. Glad to have this weekend!

Is the CPU a good bit of troubleshooting related or customer service like I hear the iOS is?

It's both.

There is a lot of troubleshooting though.

Just remember that at the end of the day, make sure people know you care about their issues.

You'll actually test it in training, but if you have your own phone lying around, that'll do just for testing the line.

Welcome aboard Famous!!

They will let you unbox everything except for the small gray box.
Save that for when they ask you to show it.

Sounds like they may be backed up? My recent 3rd interview went well and the manager even stated he liked my answers. I felt like the interview couldn't have went smoother honestly.

Said however that it could take up to 2 weeks to receive a notification for whether or not I was selected for the job. OI!

So I guess I'm stuck waiting for an email either way. Starting to sweat because in a few weeks I'll no longer have any source of income. Yikes!

Anyone else who has been targeted for the 1/28 class had a similar experience?

I had my 3rd interview today. My interviewer said I did a great job answering his questions and he liked my energy. He told me that I should receive an email in 3-5 days and a phone call soon. So I'm guessing I'm in there. My buddy who has been in the position since August told me that's what they told him. So I'm just waiting till I hear back.

Just wanted to say the first day was amazing. Beyond anything any other company I've worked for has ever done. Well worth the effort to get the job! I probably won't say anything else beyond that down the road so good look to everyone else trying! This thread was a very valuable resource in the hiring process!

Thanks all!

iOS and I'm going to switch to CPU as soon as I can... assuming I can last 6 months. The job itself isn't that hard but the customer service thing just isn't my thing. The job is great if you have the personality for it but I just don't play well with the general public. I'll stick it out for a while but I'm polishing my resume none the less.

LOL!!! The bacon was a hoot. The Dragon pretty funny too. Todays class was absolutely fantastic. Great bunch of folks, learned a bunch of stuff I didn't know and it will just keep getting better.

Tomorrow we have got to find out who we all are at some point. There's a bunch of GA folks in the class.

Don't be. Your time will come and the wait just makes it that much better. That's when you find out how really cool this company is.

Grats to those of you who passed your final and those who began their training today. Hopefully the "you'll hear from us within 2 weeks to let you know if you've been selected" comment I received isn't an indication of bad news. (The manager stated it could take that long because it was the holidays)

The interview went well I thought so who knows ...
