    I see on Apple's employment website they don't specify a minimum age to work at the Apple Store, even just as a cashier. Anyone know if you can get hired at under 18, say 16?

    thanks,

    You would need a pretty impressive resume to be chosen over someone that is 18 or older with more experience working with technology I would think.

    I asked once, and they said you had to be 18.

    But maybe if you get a good word in with Steve...

    I heard that they give preference to college students when hiring.

    Apple takes whatever the minimum age is for that state. For most, it's 16.

    The preference is for those 18 yrs. + because of the 7-day/week nature of retail. Someone in high school (even some in college) can't put those hours in so easily.

    Passion and knowledge of the products (and PEOPLE skills) are what get you hired. You'll find numerous employees with strong skills in only one of those areas....geeks who should be locked in a room and vivacious techno-morons.

    The best candidates and employees bridge both. I interviewed quite a few when I worked for Apple.

    I've been thinking of maybe looking to try and get a job in the Regent Street store in London.

    I'd love to spend my day getting people to convert and showing them how Apple could simplify and enhance their life.
