You don't need to know how to code to work at Apple, but you should be able to make a decent cup of coffee.
Apple recently posted an ad
asking for an "iCup Technician," or someone to provide freshly brewed coffee to Apple employees and to be "on call during business of operation," according to the Apple job posting. Essentially the position requires a lot of experience with coffee machines and their maintenance, including "excellent customer service" and "some computer skills," as well as being able to "maintain the highest standards of conduct and confidentiality."
The ad doesn't give a pay range, but even food-service workers at tech companies are usually paid and treated well provided they are company employees rather than contract workers.
So if you lack any programming skills but can craft a mean cafe mocha, you may be eligible to work at Apple.
