My friend is starting Apple soon. Should she ask her boss or HR for starting the GC process? Should she wait for a few months or just ask in the first week?

Thanks Apple friends!

      Wow. So much rage? Did I touch your nerve? Is everything ok with you? You seem disturbed. You should seriously seek help.

    Day 1- ppl at Apple should already be aware of GC process.

      Thanks for your response! She hasn’t joined Apple yet. Could you tell us more about the process. Should she talk to her boss or HR on day 1?

      She should talk to recruiter before joining to clarify policy. If it is approved for day 1(most companies do 3-6months) then yes talk to boss

    Generally, companies start GC process after 1 year. Exceptions can be made and companies start after 6 months as well. If your friend want to start GC process immediately after joining then I will recommend negotiate the timeline when offer is being made.

    There is no policy regarding green card at apple. As long as your manager is fine applying green card they will apply for you. For me they started at day 1.

    Also depends on seniority ... I spoke to my recruiter before I started. It’s very common at Apple so best to be upfront from the off

    If your partner can’t work because of O1/O3 they are usually pretty good about starting the application on day 1... otherwise I think you have to wait 6 months

    Start with a yellow card, and then combine it with a blue one. That should do the trick.
