Yeah, no kidding. Gotta watch out for some questions though.
Yeah tbh I'm not worried about that. I just want to know how long it takes from time to application to the first day of training. I have tons of experience and have great social skills, I'm about to be a Junior at college majoring in Finance w/ a good gpa and have had 3 internships already, (with Forbes 500 companies), started my own company and website, in a big fraternity where i actually dj, and by the time i apply would have put together a 20,000 dollar profit to a childrens charity concert for an organization im apart of.
I want to start work in December after my finals, so I'm just wondering how long the process is and what each step was tbh
Your best bet is to call an Apple store and ask them there.
Lol I looked this up before because I was considering applying.
1) If you have no prior work experience or any resume filler that looks good, don't expect anything, no interview/call. It's a highly probable outcome.
2) It's a long process. I've read and researched a lot of interviews processes when trying to work with Apple and it's a time consumer. You have to plan weeks in advance. I also have a friend who works with Apple and says while it's fun, it can be a HUGE pain in the ass and the hiring process wasn't the best thing she went through.
3) Know the products inside out. With any job interview, you're going to be asked about the products, could be a clothing store, a grocery store, whatever, know the product.
4) I'm also in college and plan on working during the summer. HOWEVER, because it is VERY late into summer break and classes will start soon, they may not like having to accommodate to your schedule (i.e. scheduling, training, etc. that fits your time availability). But I don't know if you're going for full time/part time/ or seasonal. Working and even receiving a job interview is impacted by time availability.
Now I'm not a genius nor have I worked with Apple. But I know people who do, have asked them and it's time consuming like every other job. If you haven't had prior work experience, I would pass. If you're planning on taking classes and working only one month, I would pass again. I took A LOT of these factors into consideration and didn't apply because I know it wouldn't be worth it. HOWEVER, if you know you can do this and want to, give it a try. Also if you do get an interview, look good, sound good, and know your stuff. GOOD LUCK!
