It functions as my lifeline to my Mac and iPhone by letting me know when I might need to pull them out based on the real-time messages I receive without having to actually pull them out to check. Im able to stay connected to my work and personal life with my watch, which also increases my efficiency and ability to effectively manage my time.

Q1: “How would you define the word ’empathy’?”
A1: “Being aware of other peoples’ feelings and responding to their opinions in a way that makes them feel heard and cared about. Empathy is central to any customer-facing position because the job is all about making the customer happy and encouraging the customer to continue use of the product or service.”
Q2: “How would you resolve the situation if a customer had their phone connected to a wireless speaker and now it will not connect?”
A2: “First, I would have them make sure Bluetooth is turned on. Then, I’d find out what pairing process the device uses and check for compatibility between the devices. I would make sure both devices are in discoverable mode, that they’re within range of each other, and that any likely interferers are turned off. If none of this was working, I’d have the power the devices off and on again, charge them, and have them delete the speaker from their phone and rediscover it.”
Q3: “What would you do if you started your workday and your computer wouldn’t turn on?”
A3: “If there isn’t a protocol for this kind of situation, I would notify my superior of the issue and troubleshoot the computer as quickly as possible. Upon discovering the issue, I would update my superior and let them know that I’m back up and running. In the event that my superior would allow me to use a personal Mac to go online, I would start making support calls with my own computer. I would work on troubleshooting the Apple-issued computer later in the day, providing an update after resolving the issue.”
