Hey guys i have a small concern maybe some of you might be able to help. Ok so I applied for apple online in hope that I would get hired there. Concidering the fact that I mad the switch and enjoy using and talking about mac, I figured i would be a great candidate to help others out there in purchasing their apple product. So they never contacted me again. This past weekend i went to the the apple store nearby and I noticed a customer had a questions regarding a product and the sales person didn't know the answer. I told my fiancé, "you see babe?... I could of answered her question... Why doesn't apple hire me?" Well as I walked away, I saw my fiancé talk to the manager. Then I walked over and she introduced me to her. I didn't know what was going on. Then the manager asked me if i was interested in working for apple. I said, yes I am. I applied at apple a while ago and was waiting for a responce. So the got the other head manager. I was sooo happy! Then the head manager asked me acouple of questions regarding what i use the mac for. What basic things do i know, and i explained to him that i spend most of my time reading on forums and learning about mac and i feel i would be a great help to the company. Well he walked me over to one of the mac's and pulled up my application. Asked me if that was me. then while he asked me to fill in some other basic things he told me how much he was able to pay me. I said that would be great. Then he went to the back and came back. Told me they would send me a online background verification thing and i have to approve it and send it back. Then he would be contacting me soon after. If i don't hear from him by wednesday (1-2-2008) to call him. Well I was happy. My Fiancé said i already have the job, but i don't want to go to ahead. Anyway i get home and there it is. The email to verify. I electronically signed (printed my name) and sent it. Hours later i got a email confirming the receipt of the document. Well Wednesday comes and i called him at 3pm. The girl who picked up the phone said he was nowhere to be found and if i wanted to leave a message. I said yes, my name and phone number. No call back. Then i call him at 6pm and i think the same girl picked up and placed me on hold, then told me he already left. So i said ok. I emailed him letting him know i filled out the thing and sent it. Also that i called him and left my name and number in case he needed to contact me. Well today (thursday) i get an email from him telling me thanks for the update and he will be getting in contact with me when he hears from Hire Right. So what do you guys think?.. is this normal?.. I'm just scared i guess. BTW i'm not scared about my past, i don't have anything in my past that would harm me. I guess i'm wondering how it goes for the once who are working for apple retail? I really hope he calls me tomorrow or next week. I'm ready to work for apple and help them and customers! BTW, this is for a part time position, but he told me that they could bunk me to full time. I told him that would be great. Thing is i already have a full time with benefits and all at the bank. But if i like it.. hey who knows.
