Apple has launched a revamped version of its job listings site, offering a modern design more in line with the rest of Apple's site and providing additional resources for prospective job applicants to guide them in understanding the company's philosophy and preparing to apply for positions with Apple. The site offers background information and job descriptions for both corporate and retail positions.

The corporate section includes a small image gallery of Apple corporate locations, as well as information on off-campus employment opportunities. Apple's nine corporate divisions, ranging from Marketing to Human Resources to Retail Corporate, are also highlighted.

The retail section offers a video overview of Apple's retail stores and provides information on the company's nine different retail positions, including Creative, Genius, Concierge, and Specialist.

I wish I could work at Apple, but the nearest Apple Store is an hour away. Then again, I couldn't post here anymore if I did. :(

Yeah I know I'm a newbie, but still......

You could but if they found out it could be grounds for termination. :)

Apple products are among the coolest in the world.

HOWEVER,

I imagine Apple to be one of the worst companies to work for possible.

The tales just don't make it sound like a fun place to work.

Yes, you could provided you don't violate the NDA. Also, they have positions where you can work from home.

Having worked there, I'd say you are correct except I'd have to narrow it down as being one of the worst companies to work for in comparison to other tech companies in the silicon valley. In regards to all companies everywhere, it certainly isn't one of the worst.

Can you elaborate on why the experience is worse at Apple than at other tech companies?

It seems that every employee in the tech world is allowed to blog about their work, even the folks at Microsoft are very actively blogging. But how many Apple employees do you know that are even allowed to write about what they had for lunch? Right: Zero.

Their secrecy alone makes it a nightmarish place to work.

Compared to the new found "openness" of other hi-tech companies, Apple behaves like a former communist country. They're acting as if we were still in the 1980s and Open Source and the Internet have never happened (although both developments saved Apple's butt from running bankrupt).

Furthermore, at Apple there is only room for innovations and designs approved by Steve Jobs. He obviously doesn't empower people to realize their own ideas.

Nope, it doesn't look and sound like a place where it's fun to work. Yet, strangely enough, they still manage to produce some nice products.

It could be argued that this page is their idea of a corporate blog:
http://www.apple.com/hotnews/
From time to time, we've seen open letters from Steve Jobs posted there.

Seriously dude, Apple has been about the internet for a lot longer than MSFT but you seem to think that the internet is blogging and twitter full stop. iTMS is built on modified SOAP web services for crying out loud.

I'm sure there are apple employee's blogging on this site, but they will never tell. Actually before I bought my mac, I was at the apple store and I was saying how i didnt wanna buy a new mac just for a new one to be released the following month. The guys response... "yeah we only know the day of, but check macrumors.com there are always pretty right on being in the game"

Even since I'm on this site a few times a week...:D
