    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The teamwork, when it clicks (about 80% of the time), is incredible. Individuals carry tremendous responsibility, but always have the cross-functional team there to support an back them up.

    Cons

    The complexity, intensity, and time spent doing this job consumes most of one's life. There is no work vs. life balance. It is work/life synthesis. I've become comfortable with that; for some, it doesn't make sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuously re-commit to making great products that enrich people's lives.
    Continuously re-commit to attracting and cultivating great people.
    Be tough while being kind.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

    Pros

    Great Job, hard to keep a good work life balance though. Very challenging. Very rewarding.

    Cons

    If you don't like to be busy, do not work here. Hourly could be a bit better as well. Otherwise great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share career experiences with other more often. Other than that management in Apple retail is fantastic.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Apple offers competitive hourly pay, good benefits, employee stock options, training, and the opportunity to gain career experiences from within the company (corporate, etc.). Flexible with scheduling and understanding management. Not your typical number driven sales floor. They focus heavily on customer experience and team involvement.

    Cons

    Some team members are a bit out there and just plain weird. Sometimes moving up in the company is impossible due to saturated markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Management is very transparent and accessible to all team members. Great feel in the store.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The management at Apple are second to none, and they deeply care about your developent and growth of every ten member. The ecosystem is awe inspiring! There is such warmth that radiates from fellow employees as you all become one close family like brothers and sisters.

    Cons

    The Apple Store can become pretty busy. Especially on the weekends and holidays! The days can seem extremely long while helping multiple customers through rough situations with their device(s)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! My only suggestion would be to consider the schedules of people that have a full time job and work Apple as a part time job. The days start to run together when you're working 70+ hours a week and seven days a week. More flexibility would've been greatly appreciated.
