Need a Job? Microsoft Hiring for Retail Stores

Good news for the unemployed: Microsoft has posted job listings for its retail stores. Those living near or around Scottsdale, AZ or Mission Viejo, CA can now apply to work in one of the wall sized screen equipped stores.

Looks like a total of 16 positions are open right now and positions range from store managers to retail assistants. We assume job applicants will have to demonstrate that they have the "answers" in order to be positioned at the "Answer Bar."

For now you can only apply for the announced Arizona and California locations. Microsoft says information on the future store locations is forthcoming. Send all thank you notes for U.S. job creation to Steven Ballmer [Microsoft via Ars Technica]
