    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products, strong company culture, self development and growth are strongly encouraged, awesome staff, competitive pay, excellent benefits (health care, stock purchase, 401k, etc)

    Cons

    Hard to grow with the company into a management position--they are currently hiring a lot externally for leadership positions, which was really devalue the experience one has gained after 3 or 4 years with the company

    I worked at Apple as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The environment was very laid back and I worked from home. My manager was awesome and helped me through every battle I faced as an advisor.

    Cons

    The downside was the hours. they let the full time people work 8-5 schedules whereas the college students worked anytime after 5pm. this was not ideal especially taking morning classes sitting around for 4 hours waiting to go to work. not to mention everything got busy after 5 since everyone was getting home from work and calling in for help with their devices.

    I have been working at Apple as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Perfect job for students. You are basically a Brand Ambassador for maybe the biggest brand out there now. You are given professional sales, presentation, marketing, and technical training for Apple products. You are given autonomy on your college campus and it is a job that is synonymous with being the local rockstar on your campus. It is one of the best jobs you can have if you are a business major, but will teach you people skills invaluable in any field. Only part-time hours (and pay) though, but you make your own hours. You do this job for the experience... and maybe the perks.

    Cons

    Only part-time hours and part-time pay makes it supplemental at best, if you are supporting yourself while in school. However, if you can live with the pay, then the experience is great. Initiative and the ability to complete objectives and goals is important here. No room for bare minimum attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    Getting to work with competent people. Manager's really care. Great pay that matches the city's economic status.

    Cons

    Getting the worst customers EVER. You really need to have thick skin. Also, managers will schedule you for full time even though you are part time, so students don't get to be students here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be really aggressive with hiring. Hire the best and REALLY search and recruit. Having low coverage makes me want to quit.
