    I was told that it was going to open in July...

    Well, that will make three Apple Stores within 50 miles of my NJ home I can visit! :D

    But I think the NYC one has to be there. I mean, how many people live in the big city? Several million. How many use Macs? About 40000 or 50000 maybe? I am just guessing. But if each of those living in the BA (and even some peecee users) pitch in and purchase some quality material from the store, that place might be making millions in no time.

    I think I am too young to apply for a job there, though. :D

    getting a job there is tougher than they make it sound.... "if your dream job is working for apple and talking about apple...." they make it sound like as long as you love apple and its products you're all set.... but no. what a lie! ha.

    i know someone who interviewed but got shot down......


    yeah, it's about time they have one in the city. though, they had a decent amount of mac authorized resellers so it wasn't that bad. but let's be honest, apple stores are just too cool to not want to have one close by

    who me? :D


    yeah....it's VERY hard to get a job there....especially the New York one. I made it to the first round of interviews, where they picked the top 150 candidates from about 1500. This is just for Part time Sales too!!! crazy...I didnt make it to the next round though :mad: ...they were picking 75 and then giving 25 of those people jobs...

    very very competitive...oh how I wanted that job!...oh well

    Do Apple Store employees get any discount on stuff in the store?

    If so, maybe that's why everyone wants to work there...;)

    yes.

    for apple products its not a set percentage. It depends how much stuff you buy, and depends on special deals, etc apple does for employees.

    They also get 10% off 3rd party products that are in the store...

    nice gig.
