I received a job offer to work for Apple located at the Austin office. However, I dont want to move to Austin and would prefer Dallas or Houston. Would Apple let me work remotely from any of those locations?

    of course they would! that’s what I think.

    but maybe you should ask them, since they are the ones giving you an offer.

    I live in Dallas. If you're a socialite or just like doing things like community events, fairs, etc, stay in Austin. Austin is much "cooler" and has a younger crowd; downside is Austin is more expensive. Dallas is a great city, don't get me wrong, but if I had a choice I'd pick Austin over Dallas ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      I love Austin and I totally agree with you. However, my husband is Black and I am White. He said that the decreasing population of african americans in Austin is frightening. It is now less that 7.6%.

    • Then he should move in, not out if he cares? Or does he do only what others do?

      If racial prejudice is his concern, highly recommend sticking to Austin. Has he considered that the flight of African Americans could be due to the rising cost of living? Austin isn't exactly cheap and it's gotten much more expensive in the past 5 years especially. Doesn't seem like you and your husband fall into the category of people most impacted by CoL fluctuations, so likely you two would be fine should you choose to move there.

      Thanks for the comments...reason why I love Austin. You can't escape racial prejudices but I feel that Austinites will not make him feel like alien from outerspace....but I just wish more diverse groups would come to austin....if they can afford it...frustrating because I dont want him to feel isolated in experiencing african american culture.

      That's says alot coming from you since you are employee. Doesn't Apple have a data center in the Dallas-Forth Worth area? Also, can you tell me if working from home is common in the Austin offices?
