      They aren’t the sexiest device to be sure, but they function well enough, are affordable, and seem reliable (can’t say that about the products I work on, can I?)

      I recently bought my first one because I’m literally out of shelf space for books and I love it.

      Well sir, 'Fucking Kindle' is not the only Amazon product. You would probably be shouting 'Alexa!!' in the empty room everyday. Let's discuss just about Apple.

    I was like you when I joined. I didn't like Apple products at all before I joined and didn't have any of them. I use to look down upon Apple users. But after joining when I got exposed to the work culture and the passion every one had, I was totally won over. I saw what goes into making that product and why it is what it is. I worked at competitors too but I could never relate to the kind of work culture they had. I feel that I understand the product much better now. I understand the philosophy and realized that it is in sync with my own.. I understand why they don't mind being late in adopting a technology and try to never compromise on perfection. I still don't like a few things about the products but I am pretty convinced the best people are doing their best work here. And I do definitely see a lot of that in the products that which I never did see in the competition (which I used to love so much).

      There are 3 ratings at Amazon: TT (top tier), HV (highly valued), and LE (least effective). They are distinct ratings.

      I second this super hard. I got my first iPhone when I was able to afford it after college. Then got an offer at Apple. After getting exposed the full ecosystem, work and passion, etc, everything else seems second or third rate.

      I would build a higher firewall for China if they offered big enough premium for my services. I feel sorry for their people, but money come first.

      I am not building that firewall, but people at FB and MSFT do their evil mon-fri, and some on weekends.

    I was in somewhat similar situation - except I work for Apple now more than 4 years and love our products. Now I wonder what a horseshit windows and android world is and how do people put up with it..

      Prior to joining Apple - Apple was the last company on my list to work with due to philosophical differences.

      Same here bro. I am a Mac user and today I work for Dell and am forced to use Windows. It is so stupid .... just so fucking stupid ....

      Agree about the horseshit part. However it's not nice to say this because most people cannot afford apple products. I certainly could not growing up and through out college. If you ever make it it takes time to reach financial stability enough to blow 1k on phone or 2k on Mac.

      Though I'd seriously question folks that live and swear by the latest galaxy phones...hardware may be nice but still android. And Bixby. Dear lord what a fail.

    I hate apple products, never bought a single apple product in my life. They are fucking expensive.

    Still I bought their stocks and would work for them. They do pay well.

    I was working in Dell. The corporate laptop given to me was so poor quality that I purchased my first Apple laptop when I was a dell employee. Fell in love with Mac and used it everywhere even did official work at Dell clients on my Mac

    It's a job, and very rarely is it a passion, especially in this day and age! Fat chefs and unhealthy doctors happen. You could be good at something you don't want or need. No hypocrisy!

    As long as you have an open mind for future you should be fine

    Apple likes candidates who are passionate about working at apple and making great products

    Yes you're a hypocrite. Don't bother applying with that kind of attitude.

    Care to elaborate why you have so much hatred for Apple products?
