Fun Company but Overworked and Under-appreciated

Genius (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat opportunities and fantastic resume builder. Apple has a lot of opportunity for education which will allow future job opportunities. Good benefits.

ConsGenerally Apple does not compensate employees outside of certain fields very highly. Also in retail the job is typical retail with long hours, holiday work, and a general lack of appreciation.

Corporate Account Executive in a consumer facing company

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Apple

Pros"Very Cool Products" you will be the coolest guy in town as the "Apple Rep/Neighbor/Relative/Friend" Hard working colleagues. Good health and life benefits

ConsNo balance with life and work. California requires you to work on their hours even if you are located in the East Coast. Low pay since you have the privilege to work at Apple.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your lower employees as if they work for Apple and are not the enemy.

Apple is Great Company, Steer free of Retail Though

Mac Genius (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Apple

ProsApple is an incredible company. They offer amazing benefits, including Health, dental, 401k (matching), vision, gym memberships, ESPP, and education reimbursement. The people that Apple as a company attracts as employees are also amazing. For the most part you'll enjoy the staff you work with at the store and even management on a personal level. Apple has a great training program that involves sending all new hires to California or Texas for training for two weeks. During this time all expenses are paid, including food, hotel, and travel expenses. Apple will later pay for your re-certifications every year. The training is top-notch.

ConsRetail does not allow for promotion and management will work you to death to make their bonuses. Frequently due to the explosion of Apple's popularity stores are overworked. Apple has increased the sales staff in many stores but the tech support staff is often overwhelmed. Stores are doing double the business they did last year with no additional support. Pay increases are minimal considering the increased amount of work. Management however in order to meet their bonuses often push retail employees to work even harder. Stores often will fine that they are physically too small as well. You'll be forced to work mere inches away from your co-workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport the staff in favor of more staff and larger stores.
