ThinkSecret had a repot about it a while ago. I don't Apple appreciated it though.pdpfilms said:I don't understand.... why is the apple store so particular about the facts? I mean, salary and stuff?? It's not that secret is it?

Congrats on the new job.stevehaslip said:Hey all,
I got a grin about a mile wide on my face now, my mouth has been in permanent coathanger mode since about 5pm this evening. I applied to work in the Regent Street Apple Store just after Christmas, although they didn't have any jobs then I thought if I applied then I'd be in their books as it were. Well they just decided to recruit a few more people, went for an interview last week and several very nervous days later I get a call saying they want me to be part of team zissou, sorry the team.
I was gonna post a thread asking for advice, but searched and found a few things out. I don't think I'll be posting anymore as I'm not sure that they like the rumour sites! But I guess I should be ok to participate in community discussions etc?
I had to sign an NDA before i even interviewed! Also you know how the Regent Street Store is super-swank on thefloor? Well its super-swank behind the scenes too, its like being on the set of 24!
I have seen posts from one of the people who worked on the Mac Mini project on another forum. It wasn't a Mac specific but he didn't hide the fact of who he was. The people at the other forum saw enough details to believe the poster on his claim of working for Apple and on the Mini project.Lacero said:Geez when I read the thread title I thought it was for Apple headquarters. Then I thought, is it a good idea to post to a public forum?
apple store employees get the same discount as all other apple staff (i'm not an apple employee, but i know quite a few - both in retail and that work on campus). Also I've heard that the salary they are paid now is not nearly as generous as it used to be; they also schedule people one hour under the minimum to be full-time, but so do millions of other companies. They have also lowered the standards, if you remember when they first opened you had to have 5 years retail experience, but not anymore. Though that might be better, cause I know at a couple places they hired people that have never even used a Mac but they were professional sales people going for the higher salary.edesignuk said:Congratulations! Now...on to the important stuff...staff discount?

All these warnings are quite amusing. I know of at least 3 Apple employees that routinely view and occasionally post here, even from inside of Apple (so if they are monitoring they would know they people have accessed this site). They're not gonna fire you just for hanging out at a macrumors unless you start breaking your NDA. Helping people with things that are public knowledge is not a problem.the_mole1314 said:Don't post ever again if you like working for Apple. Trust me man, they'll know. TRUST ME.
