Corrupt Apple Store Employees Come Forward Across America


by Sam Biddle
We thought the crookedest little Apple Store in Texas was an isolated case. We were wrong: confessions from Apple's retail squads around the country (and world) poured in. Apple has a serious naughty behavior problem on its hands, and the Evil Geniuses are speaking out.

The sources we talked to this summer described an Apple Store that wasn't just poorly managed—it was a personal playground. Computers were traded for plastic surgery, iPhones were smashed like party favors, and employees outright stole from the back room for their own pleasure. It was a den of misuse and abuse, all under the gleaming white aegis of Apple Retail. The perfection is a myth.

And now we know the store-gone-crazy is systemic, reaching from Tennessee to Vancouver, and across oceans. Here's what's happening in the stores you trust. The following sources contacted us via email and Skype, ranging from the Southeast, Tennessee, across California, Massachusetts, Canada, Maryland, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, and Texas. There were even more—"I worked in the most corrupt in the UK"—who couldn't be included in time.

1. A handful of hearsay from a handful of mostly former workers out of 75,000 employees.

And from a website that traffics in stolen property, who has been banned from attending Apple events in exchange for not going to jail.

Stop the presses.

5. Is there a better source? And assuming there IS,

I'm fine with people here discussing anything they want - navel lint, astrology, bacteriological genotypes, knitting, who cares.

I just don't really think everything is worthy of GD.
