Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Cupertino, CA

What I liked

My team gave me flexibility in choosing my project, and was extremely helpful in supporting my progress throughout!

What I wish was different

Nothing at Apple itself, but the location of headquarters isn't ideal for me.

Advice

Don't be intimidated by not having experience with certain technologies, teams hire based on how much they think you're a good fit for the team, not whether you're skilled in certain programming languages.

Product Zone Specialist

August 2018 • Birmingham, AL

What I liked

I love my job because it is my dream company and I am getting to experience it from the ground up. I also love the culture, we all care about one another and try to ensure good work/life balance.

What I wish was different

I wish Auburn and the Apple store were closer so I didn’t have the 2 hour drive.

Advice

I would say to not underestimate the work. Just because “it’s retail” does NOT mean it’s easy or simple. It is extremely challenging and requires you to be an expert on an incredibly large range of subjects that are constantly changing and evolving. It is more of a consulting job when you get down to it.

What I wish was different

Advice

It gets tough and it's a long road to gain experience and learn, but it's worth it if you're passionate and driven!

Technical Specialist

August 2018 • Frisco, TX

What I liked

The environment of Apple is amazing. The management is superior to other places I have worked. Everyone there cares about your personal life and your personal goals. They want you to be you outside of the Apple doors. They don't care about your background or what you look like, they invest in YOU. Which to me, has pushed me in so many ways as a person and a leader.

What I wish was different

The only thing I wish would be different would be the hours. The Apple store is a retail job, so sometimes, the hours can vary quite a bit. I would love for it to be slightly more consistent, and it has been lately the more they get to know you and your routine. And unlike other retail jobs, there really is never a shortage of hours.

Advice

If you want a part-time job that provides you an amazing experience that will teach you real life skills such as leadership, positioning, patience, empathy, etc., then Apple is definitely at the top of my list. The pay is great, and the management works with you. However, this isn't an "easy" job. So you will need to put in quite a bit of work, so just be prepared.

I ran out of work every once in a while, but from what I understand, that happens everywhere.
