    Default Apple Starting Pilot iPad Rental Program For Apple Store Employees


    CNET is reporting Apple plans to start a pilot program that would allow Apple retail store employees to “check out” iPads for up to a week.

    The program would utilize a stockpile of “loaner” iPads from which employees could borrow devices and use them freely before returning the devices for others to rent out. None of these iPads will see the hands of customers as “new” devices.

    As of now Apple’s flagship store in San Francisco is the only store planning to implement the pilot program. It remains unclear whether other Apple stores will expand the program to other stores across the country. If it does in fact become standard policy for Apple store, being an Apple retail employee just added a nice new perk.

    CNET talked to an official Apple spokesman, but they declined to “comment on or verify the existence of the program.” Still, the benefits of the program could make Apple’s retail establishments even more customer friendly. Not every Apple employee owns an iPad, and allowing them to take one home for a week from time to time will only help salespeople familiarize themselves with the device and pass that experience on to the customer.

    They'd likely have you sign something stating you will not void the warranty under risk of having to pay full retail for the device. At the VERY least, I am sure they do a factory restore when products are returned.

    Apple employee's have to rent? Why not give them each one? Its the least Apple could do for its employees because they all probably only get minium wage....

    Read some job descriptions for the apple employees... I doubt it's minimum wage, plus they're not paid commission so it's gotta be some good pay...
