Tried to get a job at Apple retail

weird experience for sure. they totally brainwash you from the start. i had to go through 4 interviews too.

first three were in Atlantic City, NJ.
they said because of my hesitant answer in regards to teamwork experience, that i was going to have anxiety on the floor. (which isnt true lol ive worked at Best Buy and Circuit City selling computers, and im a working actor)

I still wanted to work for them get the 40% discount

so i compromised traveling an hour to another store for a "Career Seminar" , where 20 other people and i went through a screening process.

we first had to print out a picture of us with 3 fun facts, and sat in assigned seats lol.

there were so many overqualified older people it wasnt even funny. guess its because the economy, but they made it weird for me because they were so damn nervous that everyone got uncomfortable. there was more acting from them from me!

they put us into groups of 5 where we had 5 minutes to make a 2 minute presentation about whatever we were assigned (ipod, imac, etc.) i got "ilife" lol

they made us watch this long video that was pretty much showcasing the apple empire and it was total propaganda.

it just seemed to me that everyone had theyre heads somewhere else lol, like high on apple. i think i'll stick to enjoying theyre products

I just got hired by a big corporation to work as an engineer.  I am still waiting to start work, they are doing drug tests, background checks, police checks, references, it is taking them for fucking every.  I filled out about 20 forms already and they still haven't given me a start date.  I'm older but I don't get intimidated by procedures at job interviews, all their bullshit is bullshit, I just say fuck it if they don't want someone like me then it's their loss not mine.

Well that's a strange one to me.

Did you end up finishing everything?

at the end of the seminar they told everyone they would call within 7 to 10 days if they were interested. it was weird. the one apple guy sat on the floor right in front of me during my groups presentation like he wanted to blow me. like i said, really weird experience
