Apple hires Indian workers before opening its first physical store

Apple has started hiring employees for its upcoming physical stores in India.

The tech giant currently has a dozen live job postings for brick-and-mortar stores “in various locations” across the South Asian country. According to a Financial Times report, at least five people confirmed through LinkedIn posts that they had been hired to work at the emerging store.

The timing of Apple’s hiring efforts appears to be credible in previous reports, which indicated the company’s first physical store would open in the first quarter of 2023 after several delays. A July report from ETTelecom said Mumbai, India’s bustling financial capital, would house Apple’s flagship store, a 22,000 square foot store in an upscale shopping mall.

Apple declined to comment on a timeline for the opening of its first physical store in India.
