    Pros

    A distinctly fast paced and challenging environment where it is beneficial to begin to foster and nurture business relationships with clientele on a personal level. I find it very easy to talk to people and want to get to know them as people, not just as customers. The camaraderie that people develop with their customers, both internal and external is incredible.

    Cons

    Even though the senior corporate leadership is fantastic, skilled, proven and driven to make a good product and take care of its people, the retail leadership is highly lacking. The tendency is to hire people from the outside (Target, for example) who are not familiar with the internal Apple culture and ascend them into leadership roles, rather than spend a little more time and a little more money to develop leaders from within the Apple retail family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your retail business model, especially when it comes to hiring outside people to lead your stores. You say you are passionate about your employees, retaining and developing them into being whatever they want, well, prove it. The soul of your company is your people. The face of your company is your Retail Stores. when you hire sub-par people to lead AMAZING sotres, you are going to get sub-par results.

    Pros

    The pay is AMAZING. I'm a senior in college and even without my degree, I'm making more than my friends that have graduated make with office jobs. You'll get what you put in.Everyone you work with is valuable and talented so expect to be challenged all the time.

    Cons

    It can be monotonous in between product launches. It's also REALLY hard to get promoted. Most people have to leave, work somewhere else, then come back to get a higher position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. Develop relationships. Recognize your high performing individuals more and compensate them accordingly. Not everyone wants a monetary raise. Sometimes, giving more responsibility and autonomy will go much further.

    Pros

    The job has lots of pros. Some of those include perks that are technology based. Such as discounts on cell phone plans, and discounts on Apple technology.

    Cons

    The hourly pay is good enough, however there is little room for advancement. Poor scheduling and lack of flexibility.

    Pros

    Amazing culture and the pay is great for retail. There are so many stores so it makes it easy to move around and try new things.

    Cons

    While there are lots of avenues to try at Apple, there can be so many roadblocks in getting to the next step.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nobody enjoys playing the political game. Recognize people for their contributions rather than judging on if you like them or not.

    Pros

    I have been promoted six times in two years and gotten a performance raise, also, so advancement here is amazing. The benefits are incredible and affordable, and there is a ton of vacation for the job type. They expect a lot but the give a ton in return.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart - if you are not dedicated, this job will eat you alive. The standards are high.

    Pros

    Apple is very fast-paced enjoyable place to work. Great benefits, managers who care, and team members that will go out of their way to help out. The benefits are fantastic! Lenient time-off policies to ensure you get the rest you need.

    Cons

    Working from home can be a bit challenging at first, but once you learn the ins and outs of working from home everything begins to fall into place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offering a few more opportunities for advancement would be great including offering the ability to train for higher positions before the position is available so that when it is available you are ready.
