The expansion of Xiaomi is becoming aggressive: the company is going to open the first Mi Store in my country: Italy, and the company has started hiring people to work inside it. The store will be opened in Milan, North Italy. The company has officially confirmed its arrival in Italy through a post on its official Facebook page with an image attached. In the image, we can read “Ciao Italia” that means “Hi Italy”. The Chinese giant is currently searching a Store Manager and four sales clerks.
The company wants a Store Manager with at least five years of experience in structured tech companies and sales clerks with at least two years of experience. An in-depth knowledge of Xiaomi’s ecosystem is needed too, as well as a knowledge of the main technology trends. The candidates must be able to entertain interpersonal relationships with international customers. So, just knowing the Italian language will not be enough: English is required too. Problem-solving and dedication to work are among the other qualities required by Xiaomi. Unfortunately, the date in which the Mi Store will be opened in Milan is still unknown.
We do not even know which products will be sold in this physical store, even though there is a high chance that we will see Mi and Redmi phones. We may learn more about it at MWC 2018, seeing that the company will attend the Mobile World Congress this year. Italy is not the first European country in which Xiaomi has arrived: the Chinese giant has already opened stores in Greece and Spain. Further, it is actually possible to purchase some Xiaomi phones in Italy through Amazon (Mi A1 and Mi Max 2 are among these devices), even though prices are way higher than the ones in China.
