    Advice to Management

    I worked for Apple ( phone support ) in Lexington, Ky. I moved to Honolulu, Hi and applied for a position in the Apple retail store and was given an interview. I received an email saying that there were more qualified candidates being considered for the position. I was shocked. I love Apple products and would recommend them to anyone and have pushed my friends to get them. My friends often call me ( the ones who don't have apple care ) asking if I can help with there issues. I once got a call while working for Apple from a Apple retail store and ended up helping the retail worker sell 61 iMacs. That's right 61 iMacs at once. With Apple care. If you don't like the way people look, then tell them that. Oh wait, that's against the law. Wouldn't want to ruin apples image. Just lie to them. Because I know that I'm more than qualified to sell Apple products.
