Want To Get A Job At Apple? Here's How


Do you want to wear your favorite jeans, swing from a trapeze in a giant transparent cube, and predict the future? Working at Apple may not be exactly like that, but it's probably the closest you can get.

Apple is hiring for a whole host of positions, from engineers at its corporate headquarters to customer service reps and Geniuses at its 259 retail stores across the country. And while Apple's sales folks can push hundreds of thousands of dollars of merchandise a year and take home a dust fragment of that themselves, Apple historically has paid slightly more than your average retailer ($11.82 an hour was the average, according to Glassdoor, compared to $8.87 an hour at a Walmart). But after a tough New York Times article, Apple this summer announced it was lifting wages by as much as 30 percent and giving employees discounts on iPads and Macs.

On the other end of the spectrum, Apple senior software engineers have earned a pretty $126,454 a year on average -- slightly less, however, than similar positions at Facebook ($132,503) and Google ($141,705).
