Apple launches rewards program to encourage retail employees to move those iPhones

In an effort to keep up iPhone sales ahead of a quarter in which Apple expects sales to drop year-over-year for the first time, Apple will encourage Apple Store employees to sell more iPhones through a new rewards program, reports 9to5 Mac. The program take place between Feb. 21 and March 26, the article adds, quoting unnamed sources.

The program promises rewards and all-expense paid vacations to Cupertino, California, to employees who sell the most iPhones in their region, those sources add. 9to5Mac says the metrics for giving out rewards and vacations are: how many iPhones are sold per week, customer satisfaction, how many iPhone accessories are sold, and how often the iPhone Reuse and Recycle upgrade program is utilized in the store.
