Apple Inc will pay one-time bonuses of as much as US$1,000 to store employees next month, Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.
The company will give out US$1,000 to retail staff hired before Mar. 31, while those who joined later will get US$500, the report said.
New employees for the holiday shopping season will receive US$200 and bonuses will also be handed out to AppleCare and online sales staff, the report added.
Apple did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The company's retail chief told Reuters in June that Apple was expanding its retail operations, betting that a combination of strategies developed before and during COVID-19 will make its stores more popular than ever. (https://reut.rs/3EKndyI)
