I'm starting in a couple of weeks at one; just wondering if there's any more of you guys out there.
well, i know of some (i'm not one), but from what i remember them saying at one point is that the "contract" you sign with apple forbids you from these types of sites. i may be wrong here, but i remember hearing that from a friend- meaning that they might not respond.
You are correct.. being an Apple Employee means you're not supposed to frequent forums and the like.
I used to work for a Apple Store. and yes, you can read macrumors on off time but you are not suppose to post.
and i'm sure that really stopped you
Actually, it did. I only worked there for the summer (3 months) so i only had to go without posting on MR for 3 months. If i was still working their i don't know how long i could of held out. I would of probably got a new username that was not linked to me in anyway.
See this Apple
Well if there are any reps from Apple watching, I would like to say that I was unaware of this legality and I will cease and desist; not looking to get fired from my awesome new job before I even start!
frankly i think apple could really careless
It's a thing about employees revealing apple stuff before apple reveals it.
For example, an employee could vent that they've been putting in a lot more hours per week, sorting out a new shipment. This would tell the public that they're coming out with a new computer.
Apple is famously paranoid about stuff like that.
Apple also likes the secretive atmosphere...even if security isn't too tight in reality, the simple idea that security is top-notch drives people wild and creates huge buzz for their products.
I would love to work at an Apple Store, but that contract would bug me, as I know someone who worked at a store and left a bunch of forums. Kinda sucked.
If you post from home and never mention you're an Apple employee on the forums or tell your co-workers that you post, I don't see how Apple could find out.
Yeah, but do you really want to risk a paying job, just to post on an internet forum?
i know people that have been fired for posting on MR while working for apple, yet i also know some that post under an alias and get away with it, just dont be silly about it.
There are some restrictions on Apple Store people that don't necessarily apply to everyone else. Here we can see an example of a long time employee giving up the goods on one of the deepest, darkest Apple secrets of them all.
Wow, that's insane... but awesome at the same time. If I worked for Apple, I would definitely obey their rules.
I think you mean they COULDN'T care less?
They monitor your IP to make suer you don't frequent these sites and divolge TS information.
I think the point is, you sign your name stating you won't do X, and then you do X...
Can someone give me some advice on how to get a job at a apple store, I don't know what to put in my CV. Im currently studying computer science at uni surely this should help.
When I apply for jobs at the apple store I never get a reply
Typically you need retail experience..
I have friends who work at Apple Stores, they say it's cool at first, but not all it's cracked up to be.
