Apple Requires Extra Staff, a Hint of iPhone 5 Release
Apple's job posting at the UK recruiting site gives a hint about an early release of iPhone 5.
Apple might be planning an earlier launch of their iPhone 5, as they post job vacancies at the UK recruiting site Reed. Apple needs full-time iPhone sales workers for Newcastle Upon Tyne with experience, and could provide demos at the stores or can help to build traffic.
Staffs that will be hired will start on August 16 after four full days of training in London, and work through October 29. Employees will be paid $121 per day through its contractor, the Gekko.
Apple is widely known for hiring extra staff or employees if there is an upcoming iPhone launch events, and often needs an all-hands-on-deck release that pays bonuses for those who would have the time off.
Almost all of the leaks about the iPhone 5 said that it will be released in September, and would make the start slightly early. Apple doesn’t necessarily need to start temporary hires in sync with the launch, and may want them on the floor ahead of time to give them experience. An announcement on August could also need extra staffs to prepare the store, and sell people on an upcoming iPhone so they line up or try for a pre-order.
Queuing staff at the end of October might be also be a hint of the anticipated demand for the upcoming iPhone 5. Apple usually demand for weeks or even months after an iPhone launch, and might want to guarantee quick processing during those times when lineups and heavy floor traffic are the most common.
