I understand, it depends on the team, but anyway, the whole Apple culture is quite similar.
Is there really any grow for QA contractor?
Is any sense to work there as a contractor for more, than one year, or start searching for another job?

    Apple contractor jobs are generally the worst in terms of growth, work and even most basic human treatment.

      Let's talk about Google then. How's Google contracting is different from Apple one?

      I heard Google contractors are never SWE.

    Contacting at Apple is a bad idea.

      I agree. But sometimes it's good to get them in Resume, what do you think?

    I have a friend who started at Apple as a contractor and was hired to a permanent role. So that is possible.

    Network with other teams/managers and leverage those connections for referrals and advocacy in converting to FTE roles.

      Contractors don't have access to other teams in Apple.

    I have a friend who started as a contractor at Apple and was then hired as a SWE. So it's possible.

    I was a contractor at Apple and got converted to FTE in 8 months. Was absolutely doable for me. Not much of a pain on converting interview
