While we are kind of upset that Steve Jobs has chosen to neglect our Jobs Board, it seems Philly’s first Apple Store is now hiring and it’s using Craigslist to find employees. It is the first official confirmation that Apple will launch a retail store in Philadelphia proper.
Posted last week, Apple is seeking Mac-head “Geniuses” for its new reported 1607 Walnut Street location. In the company’s typical we’re-super-serious-yet-friendly fashion, the ad calls for those looking to join the “retail revolution.” Rumor has it that retail workers make roughly $9 an hour while its Geniuses support team can make up to $24 an hour. [Full Disclosure: Local Apple specialist Springboard Media is one of TP’s sponsors.]
Reports of the strict corporate culture at Apple’s retail stores have been circulating on the web for some time. Last year, one employee made waves with a confessional style LiveJournal that was quickly removed. Employees of the Apple Store in Lynnwood, Washington, staged a walkout in protest of management’s “abusive” behavior in October.
Reports like these should be taken with a grain of salt. Many retail chains are criticized by staff, but don’t have the same press buzz as Apple. After the jump, a Genius hiring offer from 2008, should you decide to take the plunge:
