Jim Dalrymple: Microsoft Poaching Apple Store Managers and Sales Staff

Jim Dalrymple reports:

People that have spoken to The Loop on condition of anonymity confirm that Microsoft has contacted a number of Apple’s retail store managers to work in their stores. In addition to “significant raises,” the managers have also been offered moving expenses in some cases.

Makes sense, given how blatantly they’ve copied Apple’s stores so far. Where else would they go to hire Apple Store-like employees?
