Now, to give you a more detailed glimpse and to entice you even further, here are a few more things you need to know about the job:
What does an Apple At Home Advisor do?

How much does an Apple At Home Advisor make?
Unfortunately, Apple did not disclose the salary of an At Home Advisor on its official website. Information about salary is provided during the recruiting process.
However, some employees have reported how much they make to Glassdoor. Based on the reports, Apple At Home Advisors earn an average of $13 per hour. Some make as little as $10 per hour, while others get $18 per hour.
We thought, your qualifications might have something to do with it similar to any other jobs out there. The more experienced you are, the higher you get paid.
Who qualifies to be an Apple At Home Advisor?
In this section, we are going to provide you with some of the requirements for the job.
Well, obviously, as an At Home Advisor, you are required to interact with Apple customers and help them resolve technical problems, so it’s just right that the company requires excellent communication skills.
Although the company provides you all the necessary information as well as training, it would be an advantage if you already know how to use an iMac as well as other Apple products. Your knowledge about their products would be a great plus. Needless to say, it will make work easier for you.
Since most of the work is customer service, it would be great if you have a passion for helping people, at the same time, does have the ability to stay cool under pressure (especially since you are dealing with different personalities).
Another qualification is that you need to be able to work independently without in-person supervision, which is pretty much obvious given that you will be working remotely.
Lastly, to be considered for the job, you must be able to multi-task, and someone who is able to manage multiple systems and applications all at the same time.
What are the benefits of becoming an Apple At Home Advisor?
This one’s probably the most exciting part!
As an Apple At Home Advisor, you have the option to either work as a full-timer or a part-timer.
Regardless of your choice, though, you get to receive lots of perks from Apple!
First, you will receive a benefits package, which includes paid time off, as well as product discounts.
Second, you will be one of the first few people to hear news about Apple’s new and upcoming products.
Third, Apple pays for your internet service, which means you do not have to worry about paying your internet bill! Please take note though that as per Apple, they will only “provide reimbursements up to an amount we’ll discuss during the recruiting process”.
Lastly, Apple is not Apple if they are not going to provide you an iMac and a headset that you will have to exclusively use for your At Home Advisor work.
Now, that’s a pretty amazing deal, right?
But, wait! There’s more!
Of course, we will not forget the fact that as mentioned earlier, Apple will also provide training for all new At Home Advisors. The training lasts about nine weeks.
Don’t worry as it’s all virtual with a live instructor.
In this training, you will learn about job-specific tools and processes, Apple products, as well as advanced troubleshooting
How many hours does an Apple At Home Advisor work?

Shifts vary depending on customer support needs. However, as per Apple, they experience a high volume of customer demand for help during major holidays. Thus, the need for their staff to work on those days.
We highly recommend taking this up during the recruitment process to know what the best possible shift is or work schedule is for you.
