Ever wondered what it is like to work at an Apple Store? Popular Mechanics has published a report with some insights from an unnamed Apple Store employee. The report shows that Apple Store employees are in the dark about new products as we consumers until a keynote or press announcement.

There are evil Apple customers, chinese resellers and drug dealers store employees have to deal with. Apple Store employees are also held to sell AppleCare and MobileMe subscriptions to customers (oh, big surprise).

There is a competitive culture in a store that keeps employees motivated to sell more. There is the notion of a cult as trainings sessions go beyond products and also aim to set the right mindset.

To get fired you just need to talk to the press or speculate about future Apple products to customers. You can be late to work though like 15 times - no problem.
