Opportunity at Apple - Should I take it?
Hello all, just a little background about myself. I graduated as a MechE a few years back and have been working since then. Back in 2016, I got an email from a recruiter at Apple for an Engineering position in a special projects group. I thought things went well but did not end up getting the offer. They said they’d keep me in mind but I thought that was just their generic response.
Surprisingly, I got an email from the same recruiter a few days back saying that another position has opened up in that group and the hiring manager is interested in skipping the phone interview and meeting me directly. However, this time around, according to her, this is for a technician level job and the title is also something Technician-related.
I’m in a dilemma. Apple has been my dream company to work for but I recently got promoted at my current job so I’m not sure if I should go become a Technician there. I’m worried about the impact on my career trajectory and how it would look on my resume.
Please help me! I agreed to have an interview again to learn more about the position but also suggested a phone interview so that I can see if it’s a good fit for MY needs. What should I do?
EDIT: I forgot to mention that this might be in the same neighborhood of my current salary but she said I'd be hourly, so there could be overtime pay as well. Seems like a good and a bad thing. I get more if I work more, but then I'd have to work more than 40 hours for it to be any meaningful pay increase. Also, this is for the swing shift, so not sure how I feel about that.
