Apple makes their employees work on fake projects until they can be trusted!

Apple takes serious pride in its work, and in its privacy. A book written by Adam Lashinsky examined the intensity of Apple’s work environment. Apple sometimes makes fake projects for their employees to work on. If the project leaks, then they know who did it and they are fired immediately.

Once they are proven trustworthy, they’re brought in to work on real projects. The interviewing process alone can take nine months, and then each engineer is still given fake projects to work on for an indefinite period of time. These aren’t just new engineers, though. It has been said that senior engineers are also given fake projects. Simply put, Apple doesn’t trust people.

You could have a baby before even getting a job at Apple. Lashinsky says that if you want to work for Apple, it’s best to check your own ego at the door, because you’ll have to embrace Apple’s egomania times 1,000,000.
