iOS Advisor

May 2018 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

There are a ton of great benefits and ways to better improve yourself both work related and personally. Apple gives you a lot of opportunities to climb within.

What I wish was different

More flexible hours. The hours are very strict, as it is a corporate position.

Advice

Hours can be long but keep a positive mindset going into it, and you’ll have no problem getting through the days.

What I liked

The environment is really fun, it’s laid back and relaxed. The staff is awesome, we’re like a family. Everyone helps each other succeed which makes asking questions and getting help easy.

That I was able to find a job right out of college, it took me a while to find a job, which I thought was very strange since I have a bachelors degree come from a renowned university.

Technical Specialist

April - August 2018 • Lynnfield, MA

What I liked

I liked the people I worked with. They were always kind and very encouraging!

What I wish was different

The work schedule was tiresome, and the customers helped were more often than not abrasive or angry. This made working there for an extended period of time hard, because the customers were frankly not kind.

What I liked

I liked how I get to work at home. The schedule was pretty flexible to my school schedule. The coworkers were all very nice and cooperative.

What I wish was different

Training needs to be more detailed and intense.

Advice

If you can't handle people yelling at you through the phone, this is not the job for you. You would need to be already experience with ios devices to get through the job, they don't train enough for certain situations and troubleshooting.

What I liked

Apple gives you a great opportunity to network with those in the community. It’s a great resume builder and also you work alongside people whom wanna better themselves through education.

What I wish was different

Networked more while I was in school, but it was harder being on a commuter campus such as PSU and balancing a job with school.

Advice

Be open to feedback, receiving and giving feedback in the moment may be painful but it’s a good pain that helps you grow.

Technical advisor

March - August 2018 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

It was nice working from home and they make sure to work around your school schedule.

What I wish was different

You took calls all day so it got tiring having people in your ear talking about their issues all day, maybe more time in between calls. And a lot of times issues required transferring or consulting another group but they often didn’t want to help you so it felt as if you were on your own.

Advice

It takes a lot of commitment, each semester you get your schedule and you follow the exact schedule until the next semester so make sure you’re okay with that and do the free training whenever available to build upon your knowledge.

Product Specialist

June 2017 - July 2018 • Newton, MA

What I liked

Getting to learn about how people use technology & the company's products to connect with their hobbies and their loved ones. Those I worked with were incredibly talented and open-minded individuals.

What I wish was different

The culture of retail in the U.S. is dominated by a mentality of entitlement and it made for really uncomfortable and antagonistic situations at times from customers.

Advice

Try not to take work home with you in these cases: focus on how you bring your authentic self to the table and what you can showcase about products.
