Microsoft expects to hire 40 to 50 part-time and full-time workers for the Durham store. People interested in working at the Microsoft store can apply online.

Microsoft stores offer products such as PCs, tablets, Windows Phones, Xbox One and software such as Microsoft Office. The sites also provide customer service with a staff available to answer questions and make recommendations.
