It's not a bad place to work.
Applecare Senior Advisor (Former Employee), Work from homeAugust 4, 2015
Pros: Work from home, hour long lunches, plenty of OT.
Cons: Metrics metrics metrics
The calls are nonstop, but most of them are easy. I was on both the iOS and the CPU side. iOS is much easier and where most people start. CPU was more entertaining as it required more thinking to solve the issues, but was still pretty easy.

Mandatory OT popped up occasionally but not often enough to be a real hindrance, normal OT was available almost always.

The place is all about metrics. When you get hired they say it's not, but it is.

Enjoy working everyday
Service Specialist (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 4, 2015
Pros: Great atmosphere to work in, a lot of information to take in
Cons: Stressful if you cannot multi task
I have learnt a lot from working with this company. It is a busy environment and fast paced. Although can be stressful at times, the support you receive from managers and coworkers enhances my skills and experiences. There may be times when it is hard to solve an issue, but if you are willing to learn, your peers are able to help you through.

A place to develop professional skills
Expert (Current Employee), Salem NHAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Culture, Benefits, Teamwork
Cons: Compensation, Hours
A good job for young professionals to begin growing skills and competencies. Room for advancement could be better for most individuals. Culture is great, pay is high for retail, but low for the level of excellence demanded of many roles.

Great as a hold over, not a long term position
Maps POI Analyst, Junior (Current Employee), Austin, TXAugust 1, 2015
Pros: loose management, fun coworkers
Cons: boring, it's just boring
The people you work with are pretty cool and management is nice, its just that the job is one of the most mind-numbing experiences known to man. It's repetitive and tedious with no visible ladder to climb (and it's contract work, so expect recruiter BS too). It's great if you're looking for a position that will hold you over until you get an actual career, but it's not a position you want to be stuck with, otherwise you'd loose your mind. Though, on the plus side, job security exists!

Fun work place make lot of new geek friends that become a life long friendship
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee), Elk Grove, CAJuly 31, 2015
Pros: This is not a permanent position. But the experience looks good to be used on your resume.
Cons: Unfortunately they only hire through a temp service, on a year to year contract with a 6 to 8 month lay off then your called back.
Apple Inc, was an excellent place work for. And the challenges there were limited to how much you wanted to learn. If the supervisors and managers saw something in you. You'd would be approached and asked, how would you like a team of engineers and start on a special project. This was awesome and challenging, because you didn't get to pick who you wanted. But it made you see what the managers see in a person from the outside looking in and see the strengths and weaknesses in individuals and help them into a direction that will help them to do better at there jobs and build there confidence. it's a satisfying reward all by it's self.

Good for those who want to work from home but some draw backs
AHA Senior Advisor CPU/iOS (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJuly 31, 2015
Pros: good pay, good benefits
Cons: bad managers, not paid for downtime like policy states
They are good if you want to work from home. Watch out for the fact that they will ding your attendance if you have downtime even if its caused by their systems and this does happen a lot. Also watch out as some managers do not follow by policy and do not pay your for 1/2 of your downtime like they are supposed to. Overall pay and benefits and swag are good. You'll usually get gifts from them about every month to two months.

Pros: Great Benefits
I love my job at the Apple Store, but I think that it is time that I get a big girl job and really explore all my opportunities. Apple is one of the best companies that I have ever worked for and hopefully I can eventually go to corporate.

Can't beat working from home and awesome computers to work on
Tier 2 CPU Senior Advisor (Former Employee), N. Canton, OHJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Benefits, free Apple stuff all the time, great chance for advancement and moving up quickly.
Cons: 60 hours work weeks
Wake up, do your morning routine, and walk into your home office. Turn on your awesome two Macs and clock in and start taking calls. Usually you have around 7 different chat rooms open at once with other employees helping each other out, and also taking phone calls from live customers who call AppleCare.
