This was a filthy, unprofessional, agenda-driven interview by Business Insider. A sampling of the Qs posed, meant to shit on Apple and elicit negative responses. In 90% of the cases, the interviewee didn't bite. I've never, ever seen a less professional interview with so little journalistic integrity and contempt for objectivity. He actually disagrees with and argues with the interviewee whenever he says something positive about the working environment or Apple, and tries to swing things back to negativity.
BI: So why is Apple not promoting these people?
BI: I struggle to understand why Apple wouldn’t promote from within.
BI: How do the staff internally talk about that? The retail staff can’t afford the products.
BI: But it’s still the case that the majority of the people working at the store simply cannot afford the products on a regular basis.
BI: Do staff talk about how ridiculous it is to work for Apple and not be able to buy anything?
BI: Do Apple employees regard this as political in any way? Because this is how inequality works. You’re selling devices worth thousands every day and you’re not being paid enough to live in a one-room flat near the store.
BI: £8 an hour — that is sad.
BI: Is it like a cult?
BI: There’s almost a Thought Police aspect to it.
BI: At Business Insider we give feedback to people, but we don’t have a ritual where I’m forced to give positive and negative feedback to every single employee every single day. That would be insane.
BI: Wow, it’s like Maoist China where you sit in a circle and critique your comrades.
BI: So let me just show you this massive, beautiful phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, in ivory gold, with a stylus. You don’t look at this and go, “Wow, if only Apple could design a phone like that”?
BI: So you’re being paid £7 an hour, and a customer comes in looking for, say, a cable, and you’ve upsold them into a sale over £100,000. And there was no bonus or recognition for this whatsoever?
Case closed. This interview was nothing but a hit job meant to generate a few clickbait quotes.
I've been to dozens of Apple stories, in many cities and countries. If employees are truly unhappy, they do a hell of a job hiding it, since they almost always have the best attitude and the most enthusiasm and helpfulness I ever experience in ANY store.

So he wants to piss off the biggest employer in the county?
I wish Bezo's was Apple's CEO. He would have ripped this guy a new one.
yes this guy. This is the guy that Tim cook is allowing to heap crap on the Apple name.
I'm getting sick of Tim Cook being such a push over and allowing small fry to crap on Apple's brand. Weird that when Steve Jobs was CEO hardly anyone in media/politics/Wall Street crapped on Apple. Yet now Apple is more powerful and richer than ever it gets crapped on all the time.

Just passed by an Apple Store to buy my 4K Apple TV (it was completely packed) and played around with the iPhone 8 (which was sold out). Its really a gorgeous phone, the glass makes it look and feel that much better. Portrait mode is also really need, and the UI is very slick. I'd buy this phone ASAP, if I wasn't considering the X.

Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
Same with Google. Dropping Bing for Google for Siri search.
