In the original Apple At-Home Advisor thread, I've noticed that many good questions get skipped and lost in the excited postings of those who are fortunately moving along in the AHA hiring process. I'm starting this thread for anything related to the position that you would like to know or that needs elaboration, especially for those in the initial stages of the application process. I would like to know: 1. Has anyone gotten their INITIAL contact from Apple after weeks (or months), rather than just a few days, after submitting the initial application(s). That is my situation, having applied for every At-Home position during the past month, or more, with no response. I intend to keep applying, but just curious if it is a lost cause after a week or so. 2. After your original failed application, did you change something in your application (or your method of application) that got the hiring department's attention and resulted in an interview? 3. Is anyone who has been hired for the AHA "older" like me, 50+...? 4. I'm considering applying with Kelly Services for their (low paying) Apple tech support position in order to make myself more attractive to Apple. From the other thread, I understand that perhaps some have made this switch from Kelly to Apple, but the details are sketchy. Is their any prohibition against Apple hiring employees away from its subcontractor Kelly? Thanks in advance!
