The soonest that they will be able to turn it on will be the 7th which is just 3 days before my training begins.

Also for those in the Dallas Area I had to go to 2 stores for the I-9 Verification First I went to the store in Northpark Mall but the Manager their said that he couldn't because I needed my Social Security card that my permanent resident card wasn't enough. Then I went to the store on Knox and spoke to G one of the managers and he said that it shouldn't be a problem and went ahead and verified and called them and everything went well. Apple sent me the email with the shipping label and sent it to them on Thursday, just waiting now for them to contact me with more information.
I sent my paper work in on the exact same day. Who did you end up using ofr telephone?

For an easier way to locate previous postings with interview questions, you may want to use the "search forums" feature and search with keywords, i.e., "interview questions," "interview," or "questions." Just some examples. That should get you what you need a little faster. I did! Good luck!

Well after reading this thread I went and applied for about 10 positions and a week went by with no bites from Apple so I made another Apple ID last night and tried again. I hope I haven't missed the boat. I see a few members from Dallas have had some luck so far.

I wish I knew. I haven't heard anything and yeah, there's pretty much 3 1/2 business days left. If no word by Thurs. AM I'll probably contact my training manager.

Which ones did you apply for? I only applied for the ones in Dallas, Frisco, and somehow I accidently applied for one in Hoover, Alabama.

I've visited a few times and read everything over but excited? Not really but I've been there and done that with everyone from Compuserve to Oracle. It's just another tech support job, albeit one I can do from home.

I would have answers prepared for the questions that appear in this thread. During the interview you'll be better able to focus on being personable, energetic, and sounding natural. Instead of stumbling over answers because your mind went blank from nerves and anxiety.

Edit: Your goal is for the interviewer to tell you that they're recommending you continue to the next stage. Don't give them any reason not to feel good about you in this position.

The one Kelly provides is 21.5 inches. I assume it's the same with Apple. You'll receive a phone and headset.

You'll need proof of identification and proof of right to work in the US. Expired stuff probably won't suffice. Do you have a passport? That covers both things.

Edit: This tells you what documents meet the requirements for the I-9: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/usc...00082ca60aRCRD

i think i read you can still use your license if it's suspended as long as the expiration date hasn't set in yet

and i don't have a passport lol


*EDIT* just tried to renew my regular ID card online and it allows me to, i wonder if they'll let me use the temporary printable ID card while I await the ID card in the mail

Has anyone been working a while?
What do you think of the job? Stressful? Or do you love it?

There are a few posts on glassdooor.com from AHA reps but I haven't seen any posts on this forum from people that are actively working at home advisers. And there is no exact answer to your question anyway. Each person has their own personality, job likes and dislikes and job perspective. I've had tech support jobs that I've loved and some that I really disliked. The ones that I liked always provided unique challenges and the ones that I disliked were the ones that turned into production line work. I certainly hope the iOS support job does not turn into the latter but I'm already resigned to the fact that there are going to be a slew of internet connection issues. If you want to get taste for what people are going to ask, just go through some of the iPhone and iPad troubleshooting threads on this forum and other mac forums, especially at apple.com
