Sam sung apple employee

Former Apple Store employee named Sam Sung, who used to work at the Pacific Centre retail location in Vancouver and quit Apple to work for a corporate recruiting firm in December last year, is now offering up a framed, autographed presentation of his Apple Store shirt, name tag, and business card on Ebay for charity, Business Insider is reporting.

“I had a great time working for Apple and would recommend it to anyone. I hope my old business card will go to another fellow Apple enthusiast with a sense of humour and the desire to help raise some money for a good cause. Although the auction is for my business card alone, I have framed it alongside my old uniform [as seen in the picture] and I will arrange to courier it [frame, t-shirt and lanyard INCLUDED] to you. Good luck.”

The bidding starts at $1 and winner will also need to pay a shipping charge of $70. All money earned from the auction will go to Children’s Wish, an area charity that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses.

    I wonder if he originally got the job solely based on his name….sort of a tongue in cheek hiring for apple? Lol

    I live in Vancouver and frequent the pacific centre location a lot(more so the Richmond center location as it is closer to me). I would’ve loved to meet Sam Sung and would still love to meet him and just ask about his experience at apple in general, especially asking him about particular instances that he has because of his name hahahaha

  • To be a fly on the wall during his Apple interview…

    I’m sure if you sent him a tweet he’d reply.

    Great guy for using is 15 minutes of fame for a good cause. I’m sure the hardcore Fanboys are salivating over this.

  • Auction Sniper locked and loaded…j/k

    One could buy this shirt, pretend to be an Apple employee. Walk into an Apple store, go behind the counter and help himself to some iPhones and iPads.. lol

  • Ryne

    I can’t understand why anyone would want any of it. Who would want someones old clothes and name tag? What a waste of money for crap.

    It is not so much about the shirt, it was a successful social media campaign that garnered media attention, which obviously gets the attention of those that are super wealthy. all the money is going to a very good cause and the people that are placing bids are well off enough to donate this kind of money. I don’t see anything wrong with it. I would agree if he was pocketing the money it would be ridiculous, but he isn’t.

    WOW, already over $80,000USD and there are still over 8 days left! :O

    Well that the irony isn’t it.

    You can do this now by printing an iron-on Apple logo on any T-Shirt.

  • Auction has reached $80,100 as of this morning…
