Here’s we have a former Apple employee’s nightmarish recount of his experience of working at the Tech Giant.
According to Jordon Price, “..I was so excited to work for Apple. I’m not sure if this will haunt me or not, but all I know is that I wanted to work at Apple really bad, and now not so much.”
Price laid the blame for his terrible experience at the company on his immediate boss:
[su_quote]Then my immediate boss (known at Apple as a producer), who had a habit of making personal insults shrouded as jokes to anyone below him, started making direct and indirect insults to me. He started reminding me that my contract wouldn’t be renewed if I did or didn’t do certain things. He would hover over my back (literally) like a boss out of Dilbert and press me to finish some mundane design task that he felt urgently needed to be examined. He was democratic about his patronizing and rude comments, but it didn’t make me feel any better when he directed them towards my team members. I felt more like I was a teenager working at a crappy retail job than a professional working at one of the greatest tech companies in the world.[/su_quote]
There’s always two sides to a story and unfortunately we may never get Price’s boss side. However, this is a case Apple’s HR department should be looking into.
