Apple wants to hire "iPhone Personal Trainers" to work at a Sacramento call center doing iPhone technical support.
The company has posted two job announcements on its Web site, one for an iPhone Personal Trainer and the other for an iPhone Personal Trainer Team Manager.
The manager's job description includes this breathless description: "You'll drive customer excellence home like a World Series player."
The open house is today at Apple's campus in Elk Grove, outside of Sacramento. Apple's Web site lists the Elk Grove address as 2511 Laguna Blvd, Elk Grove.
Guessing when the iPhone will be released has become something of a spectator sport. We reported in March that AT&T was giving a release date of June 11, and one hoax put it at June 15. On Wednesday, Engadget.com reported -- and then quickly retracted -- a claim that the iPhone would be delayed until October.
We figure that anyone who applies for the job will be told when the start date is, and when the call center will begin operation, both of which are linked to the actual date of the iPhone introduction. If you've applied for the job and have any info, let us know.
