So, Microsoft employees who don’t already work at the Microsoft Retail stores but who live in a city where a store exists were given an opportunity to sign up and spend a day working side by side with the main store employees. I happen to live in such a city and so I signed up to spend a day as a Technical Advisor in the Scottsdale Store on Tuesday, August 30th.
I am looking forward to seeing how things work in the retail side of our business and what the average consumer is looking for and asking questions about. I will write a blog post about my experience as well so look for that a few days after.
I wonder if I will get to play the XBOX / Kinect all day? Or if I’ll get to take home one of the new Windows 7 Tablet devices? Probably not, but I can dream.
If you want to come harass me, say hello, ask me a question, chat, etc., please stop by the store anytime before 6 PM. I will be there from 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM. Hopefully I’ll get a lunch break as well.
