    To anyone who has experience or has worked at Apple can you give me the positions of a retail store by rank? like genius, specialist, store manager being #1 obviously, etc. Also which position requires additional training such as going to Cupertino.

    Positions


    Lowest - Concierge
    2nd Lowest - hourly sales rep(paid low.. like 10 or 9 an hour)
    Middle - Product Specialist

    The highest being Genius at almost 20 dollars an hour...

    The ABSOLUTE HIGHEST - General Manager of the retail store.. and of course the top is: DISTRICT MANAGER.

    Personally, I hate RETAIL as it takes away time from family and other important tasks one needs.. Plus I prefer 9-5 with weekends off. I am an Administrator for a small, family size firm and my hours are not retail.. been there done that - retail has no future, and from what I heard how reps are treated in an apple retail store, a lot complain about the pay which is too low and with gas prices going sky high and food prices also(recession ISN'T OVER, but RE-GENERATING), its impossible to survive on the rate of pay for a retail sales rep.

    If you want to make it in the Apple Store, I'd suggest Genius or if you have managerial experience, Store Manager.

    You have to be 18 to work there.

    If you want to survive, then just don't do part-time. Full time spots at Apple retail are extremely hard to come by.

    Full time in general

    This is also hard to come by in all sectors of this bad job market.. the only sector of the job market remotely doing very well is HEALTH CARE.. you will always need nurses, doctors, etc... but no one needs industrial workers or customer service.. retail is a DEAD END as far as I am concerned..

    Even admin assistant jobs are on the decline. Contrary to what you hear on CORPORATE America's media news stations(THEY LIE AND BLIND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE), THE job market is not improving very much.
