    Probably varies by location in the country
    Why not go in, ask for an application and let them tell you the pay
    That would be more accurate than any guess here

    It does vary, but it's probably a shade above minimum wage. Pretty sure you wouldn't get commission.

    You want to be a specialist but you don't know anything about Macs as evidenced from your other thread. If you truly want to be a specialist, then you need to get your hands on a Mac and start learning.

    I agree with this... Plus it always varies by skill and location.

    I'll disagree with this, based on some of my experiences in Apple Stores :-\

    I was a Apple Specialist in Canada.. Starting was 15.00/hr
    then I was promoted to a FT Family room specialist which
    got me up to 18.00/hr

    You do not work on commision, but you are expected
    to sell solutions and not just products ( ie; mobile me, app, one2one)

    Apple Interview Seminar

    I have a date scheduled for a seminar at the Apple Campus and I was wondering what they would be doing there? They said to plan to be there for about 2 hours.

    Retail in general is not worth it.. esp since because of the dying economy here in the US and prices going up.. the cost of living barely makes it at 10.00 an hour.. so retail really doesn't pay anywhere near being above the cost of living.. personally, I hate retail and the long hours take away a lot of time to be spent with family..

    Work smarter, not harder.

    I started at $11/hour as a specialist back in 2007. Not sure what they're paying nowadays but I'd imagine it's similar.
