    Just found this on appleinsider:

    "In what is becoming an identifiable pattern, AT&T is once again on the prowl for temp workers to bolster its ranks for a 'mystery' campaign during the early summer.


    A call has been put out through the Kelly Services temp agency that will see workers join AT&T's wireless division as greeters for a project known only as "Summer Project Pro."

    While scarce on details of what the position entails, the request is a near-mirror of the cellular provider's efforts for the iPhone launch last year and hints that the company expects a repeat sales rush for a next-generation product this year.

    In June of 2007, AT&T hired short-term workers for what ultimately amounted to crowd control. The new hires steered customers quickly through retail stores to ensure that all buyers, iPhone or otherwise, were well-treated regardless of the added store traffic.

    Like the earlier plan, the latest recruiting drive also provides a familiar three-month work span for successful candidates. Work would begin on June 16th and end almost exactly three months later, on August 16th"

    Errrm. June 16th - July 16th - August 16 is two months, not three. Unless someone meant 16th September? :confused:

    As for what it means, iPhone of course lol

    If you're in college and need Summer work, seems like a great deal to me.

    Helping to sell iPhones is better than sorting files (what I had as a college Summer job...).
