    If you want to work at an Apple Store do you have to go through some sort of test or quiz to see if you are knowledgeable about Apple before they hire you?

    Oddly, knowledge of Apple products is not as important as one would think for Apple hiring. They really care more about personality it seems, as: you can learn about products, you cannot teach personality.

    O it's not called an interview. There is me thinking it was called 'can you act like a di** on launch days.

    There is not a written test where you have to describe the physical differences between a Mac Pro and a Power Mac if that is what you are asking?

    Kind of OT, but is the Genius test hard?
