Should You (or I) Work at Apple?

In a word, Yes. If I had the opportunity, even at a base level, I would like to work for Apple, and you might too. Employees have flexible benefits because everyone is different and doesn’t want the same thing. They let you choose the program that best fits your life. They use a unique program that allows you to have what is called “FlexDollars” that allow you to purchase certain benefits like additional life insurance or help you save money on day care. Apple, like many others, offer a 401(k) savings and investment plan which if you don’t know already is a program designed to save money that you earn and invest it so that it grows over time, so that when you need it, you can retrieve it.

Apple has recently introduced a health and finess program for its employees, which is becoming more and more popular these days. It basically helps encourage a postitive and healthy lifestyle by providing incentives for its employees if they want to stay healthy like fitness plans, health education, and preventive care. Their website also boasts a generous holiday vacation time, but I doubt that’s really the case if you are working one of the lower level jobs. Aside from all those benefits, they offer discounts on Apple products, financial education, and stock purchase plans. Doesn’t sound too bad if you can get in at a position you like.
