It is a PT position. The way she explained it was I will have two schedules, one for FT and one for PT. She said though I would be PT CPU often does lots of FT work and after a year I can go FT or apply for a different position. Are you waiting for your offer as well?

When is your start date? How long have you been waiting. From what I'm getting if you get the background check then don't worry and be patient. As long as it comesback good you will be fine . I just gotta make it to getting that first before I simmer a little. Good luck and I hope it comes today for you.

I'm in iOS so I can't speak for CPU and after 6 months the only time we've been flexed to FT was during the 2 week holiday hell. That being said, the CPU queue is usually busy as heck and they may indeed flex people to FT on occasion. Some reps may go to 40 hours for a new product release or major software update but I don't see either of those happening in the near future. If they do produce this new smart watch that would been us and not CPU.

I've been trying to find out how to switch from iOS to CPU but nobody seems to know how to even begin that process Another 6 months in iOS and I'll be needing my health care coverage for therapists and prozac.

I was so happy when she said CPU team. Not that I wouldn't mind doing either,but I def. prefer to work in that area. Do you have a team leader you can speak to and possibly switch? What are the most common problems you are having with the customers that seem to be calling?

I've read this whole forum, I might of missed it, but does anyone know exactly what model MAC They send? I know it wouldn't be a newer one, just curious on screen size for my desk if I was offered the job.

I was just told PT but not whether it was iOS or CPU. I don't really care which. I'm fine with PT. I have 2 kids and I'm ready to be the one who takes care of them.
3rd interview is tomorrow *fingers crossed* it all goes well.
Good luck on the offer call..

employmen gap

Has anyone who got hired for this position had any employment gap in the past?
I have about 5 month gap before I got hired by my current employer.
Reason for the gap is simple as my 1yr contract ended and I wanted to take a break and ended up for like 5mo...lol
This is in my resume too but any interviewer didnt ask me anything about so I'm hoping this wont get in my way..

Conventional wisdom would say to follow-up.
It depends, when I was going through my background I hAd an issue with hireright and then I opened up a dispute. When I sent emails to the hiring mansger I was always met with prompt responses sometimes vague but hireright cleared the dispute and changed a record that showed a pending misdemeanor charge to closed and ultimately I was offered the position.

Long story short if you have something to follow up on by all means but if your just going to say hey I'm still here don't forget about me probably don't want to do that.

So Frustrated

Hi everyone,

I applied for the Apple At Home Advisor job on Jan 29th and have yet to receive an email!!!! I have been checking my email patiently and have received emails for other apple jobs but no response for the job I appled for. I have read through the forum and I see where other people receive calls within a few days and I see where other people have waited a long time. Should I be worried. I am trying to be patient but it is killing me!

Gaps are no big deal as long as you can explain. You may get a call to ask about it once they get the background check back you may not

I did ask my team leader of course but since she was hired about the same time I was she is still learning how everything works at the management level and doesn't know much about transfers.

CPU typically gets more tech support related issues and we get more of the vanilla customer service stuff like repairs and iTunes accounts. The iOS queue is customer service NOT tech support. You'd need a CPU rep to give you a better idea of what kind of problem cx's they get. The most frustrating calls I get are from people that are completely clueless about technology e.g. ppl that have never installed a program on a PC.

Standard AHA issue is a 2.5 Ghz Core i5 24" iMac.

I had a 12 year gap. It was called being self-employed without ever registering for a DBA. Since background checks only go back 7 years I technically never had a job but got hired anyway. However, I have worked in tech for over 20 years so it wasn't too hard to convince the interviewer that I knew a thing or two.
