With the current quarter historically being Apple’s slowest sales period, the Macintosh maker together with its retail marketing arm
MarketSource Corp., are preparing for another string of Demo Day events in March to spur consumers sales.
Although not as long as previous Demo Days events, MarketSource is looking for experienced Macintosh demonstrators for Saturday, March 10th and Sunday, March 11th. Compensation will be US$75.00 for each Demo Day worked, paid upon receipt of an electronic status report. Work hours have yet to be determined, but normally run from around 11AM to 6PM, local time.
It is not known what retail stores will be part of the events. Previously, Apple has placed reps at Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry’s, The Wiz and independent Apple Specialist dealers.
Requirements for participation include “excellent communication and demonstration skills; 18 years of age or older; eligibility to work in the United States; and knowledge of iMac & iMovie, iTools, Mac OS, AirPort, Firewire and USB.”
New participants to the Demo Days program must submit applications, while previous workers since July, 2000 do not need to. Further details can be found at the
Demo Days Web site.
