    If there are any Apple Store employees out there,
    I just applied online for Specialist and Genius positions at my local Apple Store yesterday. Is there anything I can do to sweeten my chances of getting an interview? Do you think calling the store and asking if they are hiring and telling them that I submitted an application would help? How will they contact me if I get an interview?
    I think it would be really cool to have the job.
    Thanks

    Your best bet would be to call the store and ask to speak to the Store Leader/People Leader. What I would do is try to get friendly with some staff. We get $250 - $500 for each person we refer so I'm sure you're bound to get a reference somehow.

    They'll contact you for an initial interview via email.

    Good luck!

    Heh, I see you live in the UK, I live in the US so I don't think that will be a problem :D

    I called the Apple Store and they said the hiring manager wasn't there. So I guess I'm calling back again tomorrow :eek:

    Ask for the People Leader, you might have a better shot.
