    I am interested in applying to be an Apple Campus Rep, but am curious as to what that entails. Does anyone here have experience with the job?

    I know the guy at my local campus who has this job, and from what I can tell, it entails sitting around and playing with free Hardware that Apple sends you.

    /Yes, I'm bitter.

    My good friend was the Apple rep on campus and he was responsible for promoting Apple around campus through posting flyers, hanging around the campus Apple store, manning a table at different events and stuff like that. He was available to people on campus who had different kinds of technical problems with their Macs or just getting them setup on the network but I think that was by his own accord. Oh, and there was also plenty of time spent playing with the free hardware that Apple sent him.

    A month before he graduated, they posted the position to find his replacement. Of course, I applied and was assured that I was a shoe-in to get it. Oddly, Apple cut the interview process short before I (and about 30 other people) had a chance to sit down with anyone and they choose a total moron, instead. He must have known someone higher up than me. Oh,'s not fair.

    I think preference is given to business majors.

    I was slated to be an Apple Campus rep, but then Apple decided they didn't need a rep at my school.

    yeah im a little worried about that... but the Apple Campus rep flyer was at my school... not sure if that was Apple's idea or not.

    I grabbed a flyer, but never really got anywhere with it.

    Do you get to keep the free hardware they ship you?

    I'm a campus rep

    I have been a Campus Rep in San Francisco, CA for a year and a half now and I am about to quit. It is a good program, you get to sell the products you love to you, at least I did. One of my job responsibilities was to produce flyers selling the product with current promos. We were paid weekly and got free things to use (MacBook) while we were a campus rep.

    What I've gathered from other reps:

    Free Macbook to use while employed
    Not an employee of Apple but of Volt Technical Services
    About $10/hr maximum of 15hrs a week
    Business cards with your name and the Apple logo on them
    Free .Mac account
    Some people have said you get to fly to Cupertino in Aug. for training
    No posting on rumor forums (sorry macrumors)

    can anyone confirm or deny any of this?

    Doubtful my college would need an apple rep...everyone has a mac and an iPod. It's probably 50/50 at least Macs/PCs, maybe even more like 60/40 among freshmen, at least from what I've seen on my dorm hall and others I've been on.

    Hey guys so I'm interested in doing this on my campus and I'm very involved in campus organizations so I think it would be easy but I might be transferring after the summer semester and if that happens can I still keep the computer ? Also does anyone know details about how many/ what types if assignments you have to do in order to keep the computer?
