How can I make sure that the job offer I have recieved from Apple Inc is a real job? I reieved an email from someone from HR Apple Inc stating that they have reviewed my application and I fit what they are looking for. I have completed all necessary steps for "work at home advisor" and I was emailed this past monday stating that I will be starting on the 28th and I will be recieving my contract and other documents and my "Imac". I havent recieved anything as of yet and I have called and emailed the person several times with no response.  Im getting concerned. Can anyone please shed some light on this for me? Thank you

    Did you actually apply for this job?

    to be honest I cant remember, I have applied for so many jobs.. I know the email I recieved said they reviewed my resume on career builder.  I went to the link they sent me to apply on the website and It seems to be an official website for the job. I have researched the job listing on apples website and found it and it takes me to the same link that the email I recieved took me to.

    Did your email received bear any resemblance to those described in this thread?

    One of the key considerations at this stage is what these people have asked you for.

     

    What personal details.   Birth date, Maiden name, if appropriate, Christian names other than first name.

     

    What financial details.   Like bank details, through which you 'may' be 'paid'.

     

    None of these necessarily says these people are rogues, but the information could be mis-used.

     

    I would be wary.   Ask for a direct landline telephone number and have it checked out.

    well crap. One of the names listed is the gentleman that emailed me. I contacted apple and the receptionist sent me to a gentleman who is "investigating it" he said that the gentlemans name I mentioned does work there. Im so confused. Im going to physically apply on the apple website for the position. I found it on the apple website.

    What number did you call? Was it this one:

    Well, you had the right number; what is puzzling me is that I cannot imagine a multibillion dollar company hiring someone in that manner and via email telling you you'd be getting a contract and an iMac - without an interview, phone conversation, or anything else. But, who knows, maybe they do.

     

    For now, I'd be very careful: do not give out personal details, especially nothing to do with bank accounts, etc.

    It is definitely a "real" job at Apple. Click on "My Profile" & sign in with your Apple ID. You can then click "My Activity" in the left-hand panel & see the jobs you have applied for.

    Wow, very hard to believe Apple is doing this. Sounds like we're already doing that job and should be paid the going rate. The links at the bottom don't go anywhere for me. Not quite ready to sign up, but curious to know what the benefits and perks are.

    I was thinking the same thing...... although the major benefit of the current situation is that you can choose when, pick a subject you're familiar with and the time period, if at all on certain days..... for instance, yesterday was my volunteer at the theatre afternoon/evening: for what amounts to very little "work" you get to see the play (and it was terrific), so I would not have been available to "work" all afternoon and evening.

    This means I might now be getting a first level working from home? From my experience with Apple's first level, I'd much rather take my chances with our people, at least some of them. I'll bet it's mostly reading from a script, involving having just enough skills to know which script to read from and just when to let it go and pass it on higher up.

    Probably - from my experience, I try to get past the first level asap. I usually just say I've done this, this, and this, so what's next. At that point, I've already taken care of the scripts, so I get to level two......
