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

    Pros

    Great products. Great brand. Great people. Would recommend to people who like to be challenged and like a good mix of b2c and b2b.

    Cons

    Politics, cliques within members of leadership. You will succeed if you know how to build the right alliances. If you fly under the radar, you wont last.

    Pros

    Phenomenal benefits
    Leadership really cares about your well-being.
    You have the authority to make decisions that are best for the customer.

    Cons

    You will always work weekends.
    Sometimes promotions internally are more difficult than being hired externally for the same role.

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

    Pros

    great team with many awesome products which makes it exciting typical day at work consists of managing the flow of repairs. Communicating with customers about their repair status.
    Thus far I have learned the paradigm of Apples' customer service while obtaining a deeper understanding of the management style.
    The hardest part of the job is delivering difficult news to customers about repairs or the status of their device.
    I most enjoy interacting with customers. Teaching someone something new about their personal equipment is quite rewarding

    Cons

    lack of promotion, senior management can vary

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the greatest people who all are there for one purpose: to have a good time. It is an upbeat environment and innovative. If you play your cards right it is easy for you to move up in the company as well. The pay is pretty good, but the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Hours are long and there is not a set schedule. Many locations are based in malls so they are open during almost all holidays.

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

    Pros

    The company is great. Great benefits, pay, the facilities are nice and the people are amazing. The equipment you work on is also a perk as it is the latest Apple machinery.

    Cons

    The managers can be overbearing and fake. The metrics are crammed down your throat and there is always the possibility of getting fired when you are on contract. It is like you are a class lower than the "Apple standard" employees. Not allowed full perk access or benefits- it's horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new agency to get your contract work through and stop treating people like servants who are unworthy until they are given a badge.

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

    Pros

    Pay, the people, the learning experience, the tools you gain, the doors it opens

    Cons

    Horrible management, scheduling issues, lots of drama, no ability to move onto corporate, room for advancement but you can only move up so far, retail sucks, the customers can be very difficult and entitled

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees equal and do not use favoritism, which I saw happening all of the time. Use proper feedback, don't hold employees back from progressing based on rumors, and be more hands on and truly observe your employees. Act like you care about your employees and not just on sales.
