Re: Why do people admire Steve Jobs? He was a cruel, demanding control freak.
I live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and was offered a job from Apple four years ago. The nearest apple store is in Toronto which is 45 minutes away, they had plans to build one here in Hamilton. After weeks of back and forth with their HR guy they wouldn't budge on the salary offer, which was almost slave labour.

They wanted me to work 12 hour shifts Mon - Sat, 7 hours on Sunday. On call 24x7. Opening and closing the store everyday and I had to train not only new Apple employees at the location but also Best Buy employees.

They offered me $34,000.00 CAD a year with "sales compensation". I told them give me $60,000.00 a year with no sales compensation and we got a deal. They said no, so I said no. They never even ended up building the Apple store here, I'm going to assume part of the reason was no one here would be their bloody slave for such pathetic money. I never looked at Apple the same after that. I should note the HR clown kept dropping the Apple name saying things like "you'd be working for APPLE!, you'd be the APPLE guy for Hamilton, don't you want to work for APPLE?!?"

I used to work @ a company with an ex Applestore CEO as an investor...very nice person on the surface, but there was definitely something very strange and "under" about 'em.

I don't understand though why they need to have a mgr on call and working over 70 hours a week...just hire another part timer assistant mgr and don't give them benefits and adjust salaries accordingly...if that is how they want to play.

never really thought of it that way, or knew the first ones were 666 dollars...it says in an article that they sold for 500 to a shop and then marked up 1/3...but that makes no sense because 1/3 is not a typical wholesale markup....1/2 is...

yea...they had a documentary on some channel..of course they praised his creativity and innovation. most elites are involved in some type of secret society..the meaning behind the logo and price speaks volumes. In fact most all of the big companies have these strange logos that the normal person takes for granted. These logos have a deeper meaning...we are in very evil times people.

Jobs sounds like some bosses I have had in the tech world. Successful people in business tend to be like this. They are not normal, and they are less nice than most people, this is why they win over everyone else.

Anyone on this thread actually have any real personal contact with Jobs?


Or is it just more drivel and complaining by a bunch of pansy men with no balls?


Seriously, this sort of mindless crap is what I would expect in a women's gossip magazine.

Simple.. 1/3 = .333 which is 1/2 of .666

Most of history's greats were assholes. Fact. Part of being great is being a leader and not trying to be friends with your subordinates.

He was all of the things the elite love. He didn't give a shit about anyone working for him. It was all about winning, at any cost.

I find it quite telling that this maniac would be held up as a role model for kids and as an example of "success". I found him a sad, suffering and lonely fool.

I don't envy his so called "success" at all...

Steve Jobs believed he was a reincarnated second world war fighter pilot and his early success turned him into a “demon”, according to a new memoir by his former girlfriend and the mother of his eldest child.
