you are just hating
Why would any American want to get a job with Apple when it seems to have more interest in eliminating Child Labor in China than to help shore up the economy in its home country of America (whom has allowed Apple to grow and prosper). Maybe you and all businesses having divisions in China should move to China in entirety. That way you can experience real suppression of independant operations with all profits going to China. Deaf ears will fall on any attempts to improve anything to do with child human rights in China. Put your time and money where it will make the most difference...in more American jobs....if you haven\'t noticed(asmany users of manufactured iitems have) American manufacturers are still the most creative,cost effective, and quality product producers in the world. I happen to know an American Director of Engineering in manufacturing whose moto is: \"there isn\'t a manufacturing cost or quality of product (in China) that we can\'t beat.\" The same American innovative spirit still exists! There is much more to be gained in investing in American manufacturing and much more to loose staying in China ie. patents, design secrets, quality of product, expense of shipment, delays in production, delays in shippment, no quality control standards, and once China figures it out on its own and can shelp by.. they will take over your company or kick you out and continue making inferior parts we must continuely fix as consumers in America. The Clincher? We will do without any of you! Other businesses will spring up and replace the old. The enginutiy of the America that once made the economy strong will overtake China production! It\'s still here... the good \'ol American know how... I see it every day... why can\'t you?
Notice how the age and race of the Apple employees in the photo (very young and white) does not match the age and race of the customers (older and mixed)? Apple's own job application for some positions asks if you would enjoy helping older persons learn computers, as if they always need special help. How condescending to "older" people. I'm older and I know ten times more than the average young Apple Store employee. It's gotten harder and harder to find someone at an Apple Store that actually can answer any technical questions unless you go to the Genius Bar which requires an appointment, and I'm talking about the Downtown San Francisco store.
Bring some dough, brown sugar, cinnamon and lots of butter ;-)
I know how to get hired at Apple. Go back in time to 1968 and call up Paul McCartney and ask him for a job at Apple.
woooo 12 an hour
How to get fired at Apple? Simple. Sit at your desk and open up a Samsung, Dell, or any other non-Apple product.
When I was a waitress, my boss got a letter from Coke saying they were going to sue my boss if she didn't insist that the waitresses told every customer who ordered a Coke that we didn't have Coke...We were toldwe HAD to say we sold only Pepsi products. This turned me OFF from Coke products. I shall INDEED stick to the Pepsi products ONLY because of the attitude Coke had. I'm sure it goes BOTH WAYS...But, I didn't appreciate the threat!
Another quick way to get fired is to also plug your own personal iPhone or iPad into the work computer, that's a big no no. Then again ive seen apple fire people for much less.
Unfortunately, however, Jobs off-shored the manufacture of Apple products to China, and working conditions at the Chinese manufacturing facilities are horrendous.That the horror behind the brand.
As it is behind practically everything else we buy today!
