Apple has posted several job listings in recent weeks to fill retail positions at an under-construction Apple Store in São Paulo, the most populous city in Brazil. The company is seeking to hire Creatives, Specialists, Geniuses, Managers and a number of other positions for the store, which appears to be nearing completion based on new photos published by Brazilian website Blog do iPhone.

Apple Store Sao Paulo
Apple has placed its traditional large wooden tables throughout the store, while the lighting fixtures and interior panels have also been installed. This new location will be the second Apple Store in Brazil, alongside the Village Mall store in Rio de Janeiro that opened in February 2014. Apple now has over 450 retail stores in 16 countries, with aggressive plans to continue opening new stores in China and other emerging markets.

Believe it or not, Sao Paulo's murder rate has dropped by about 70 percent since 1999. Their murder rate is actually lower than Chicago.

Being robbed at gunpoint does not mean being killed.

There are plenty of Apple resellers in various shopping malls in Sao Paulo. There are also plenty of upscale shopping malls with luxury retailers. Shopping Cidade Jardim has a Leica store, Shopping Iguatemi has Gucci, Channel, Prada etc.

I don't think the fact that there will now be an official Apple store is going to raise the risk level. Besides, most shopping malls in Sao Paulo have fairly secure parking. I've not heard of anyone getting robbed in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Sao Paulo.
