Apple Store Worker Says Customers Are Awful

Low pay, long hours and routine death threats? It's just another day working at an Apple store. I've heard from various former employees how bad it is to work at an Apple store but this seems a bit extreme. Death threats over iProducts? Damn.

Q: So you’re being paid آ£7 an hour, and a customer comes in looking for, say, a cable, and you’ve upsold them into a sale over آ£100,000. And there was no bonus or recognition for this whatsoever?

A: We got recognition آ— it’s a story that’s told throughout quite a few retail stores. [The salesperson] got a handshake for it [laughs].
