    I applied for the specialist position at my local Apple Store. A little while after I submitted my resume, I was called in for a group interview with the Store Manager at the beginning of March. I didn't hear back until about a week ago for another interview with the Store Leader. I thought it went rather well only to get an email an hour later telling me that they're moving forward. :confused:

    I thought it was a little bit strange that it took that long to hear back after the first interview. Granted, the store has undergone a huge shift during this time so perhaps thats why. My main question is if I should apply again. For any current or former store employees, what do you recommend that I do?

    I've gone to 3 hiring seminars and never even got as far as you did. I'm always told the same thing: apply again.

    Some claim that's it's easier to get into Harvard, but judging from some of the experiences on MR, I find that VERY hard to believe.

    Yeah, I've heard that too. I think it helped that one of the Genius' there told me that I'd be a good fit there. I even went to same High School as the Store Manager (not at the same time). Sometimes, i feel that those connections helped me get as far as I did and other times, I feel that I wouldn't have gotten as far as I did if they honestly felt that I wasn't qualified.

    I am curious, what does a specialist do at the store?

    They're the one who hold the iPad's up at the front of the store and check people in for their Genius Bar Appointment among other things.

    What don't they do? They do so many things, they never stop. Oh, the things they do there, my stars!
