AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch

AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch – Never again do I want to hear people complaining that they couldn’t find a summer job. Seems AT&T is so confident that people will show up for the iPhone in droves, it has taken the liberty of hiring an extra 2,000 employees to prepare for the madness. To make sense of how big the iPhone launch is going to be, here are some hot statistics: 1,800 AT&T retail stores exist and will all be selling the iPhone AT&T sales staff have received a total of 100,000 hours of training to sell the device, with each employee receiving about six hours of individual training AT&T stores will close locally at 4:30 p.m. on that Friday to prepare for the launch, then reopen at 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. that night. I’m going to be laughing all the way home if Apple and AT&T do all this training and preparation, only to find three dudes with fat wallets sitting outside a store on June 29. It’s almost here kids.
