    From the blogs I've read:
    Geniuses are paid VERY well, starting at $50,000, but is a very hard position to obtain. It is a very stressful and unpredictable job.
    On the other hand you do get large discounts and YOU WORK FOR APPLE! :cool:

    haha, when I read the title of this thread I thought that you meant Steve Jobs was visiting Apple stores. :p

    But on topic, from what I'v heard to just be a salesman there isnt great pay but its supposed to be a great envirenment with very friendly people.

    I was once talking to a Manager at an Apple Store and she said she loved it there and it was lots of fun. I asked about perks and she said she got a discount but couldn't tell me what it was?! Must be something good!!!

    Anyone know?

    That describes pay rates for their retail channel. Genius start about 35k and can make better money elsewhere. I have an interview on thursday for a specialist but i want to move up to Genius as quickly as possibly. My goal is to be Apple Certified by the time i exit college (1 more year). So i would have a BA in Communications and Apple, Portable/Desktop (trained as apple Genius), Server and Client certs as well.
