I don't have a resume ready, as I'm at work, but I'll be sure to apply later. Many thanks for the info.

Just click on the link Terry provided, sign in with your Apple ID you use for iTunes. You can fill out an app and indicate what store or zipcode. A brief resume summary pertinent to the position will suffice. It seems to parse what you say and suggest positions. Then they ask you what hours you are available and what days. You must fill something in each day, although "none" is accepted for any day yoou are not available.

Recently I had two interviews at the Apple Store in Novi (12 Oaks), so I can offer a little info. Part-time positions are around 20 hours per week (up to a max of 29 hours). The hours are somewhat flexible based on your availability and their needs. During the interview process, you're asked to fill out an online application and profile. If you get further in the process, you'll be asked to provide info for them to do a background check.

During the initial group interview there were approximately 15 interviewees. There was a wide range of experience with various Apple products and software - from the Mac OS to iPods, iPhones, etc. And, there was a wide range of age groups. The second interview was with the Store Manager and one other interviewee. I suspect that each store has separate needs for various positions that may be available at the time.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any further into the process, as they decided not to offer me a position.

You can view more info and job descriptions online. http://www.apple.com/jobs/us/retail.html

Good Luck

Just my 2 cents - I wish the Apple Stores would hire more "longtimers." Besides the obvious fact that experienced folks have that much more to offer, I think some "over 50/60ish" people can be intimidated by a staff that's mostly quite young. Think about it: Apple has been producing consumer computers since the mid-80's. Lots of people still around who have been in since the beginning, and kept up. - Are STILL keeping up. Lots & lots of invaluable, broad-based background just waiting to help folks.

The other side of the coin is that I sometimes get the impression that when we older folks go into a store & talk with someone, they assume that we're "older newbies" & not very "tech."

In my opinion, it would create a more diverse, welcoming workforce and presence to ALL customers, all ages.

One thing you'd have to consider in wanting older people to work there is the pay rate? I imagine that someone in the 50/60ish range is probably going to want more per hour than the Apple store pays. Just a guess.

The other factor would be the qualifications to work there. You'd have to be able to know the systems, operating system and software. Not saying that a 50+ person couldn't know it/learn it, etc., but again someone with that much knowledge at that age is probably looking for more.

The Ann Arbor Apple store has at least two people on staff who are obviously older than the others. All the staff there are respectful of the potential knowledge of their customers, regardless of age, probably because we are a university town and you just might be talking to a computer science prof, even if older and female wearing Birks.

Well, as I am now a Part-timer at my normal IT gig, I plan to apply. Age discrimination? I'll let you all know.

Apple doesn't have Age discrimination when it comes to hiring. After seeing new staff in many Apple stores, you may be too young Big Grin

Perhaps my comments were mis-interpreted. Not meant to suggest age-discrimination by Apple. - Just the idea that computer-literate people may be perceived as today's very young, when in fact computer use has now matured to the point of being common and "every day" after 20-25 years of development of personal computers.

Have no idea what pay would be expected by individuals, regardless of age.
