I am applying for a job at the apple store as a mac specialist. Is there any age required? I'm 17 and I've applied once last year as a cashier but never got a call. This year I updated with a resume.

I think you have to be at least 18.
I think he's right, you probably need to be 18 to work at the Apple store.

EDIT: I hear the jobs are hard to get, for obvious reasons. If you somehow do get a job I wish you good luck. The Apple stores make you work on comission and I would NEVER want to do that.

According to US working laws companies aren't allowed to discriminate under any basis including age. Of course companies have preferences and the representatives will tell you sorry you have to be 18, but on their application it says in bold they don't discriminate as long as you are of working age. There are of course criteria for certain laborious jobs which don't allow under 18s to work at certain places. Currently I'm employed by a place that has told numerous friends of mine they have to be 18 to work there and I just recently turned 17.

The workers who got free iPhones on launch for being there for 6 months, got the $100 gift card illegally. So they fired over 800 employees for being theifs.
What I really want to know is why Apple even allowed this to happen. Surely the computer records would have indicated that the particular phone was not purchased at all, and was requisitioned. Granted stealing $100 gift cards isn't right, but Apple should have been more than capable tracking which phones were eligible and which ones weren't.

So in its attempt to prevent unlockers from getting the $100 giftcard (which they should qualify for in my opinion, as they still bought the phone itself), Apple gave up some necessary checks? Not that I condone the actions of the former employees, but I certainly do not feel very much sympathy for Apple in this case. Better steps should/could have been taken in order to prevent this.
