    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    Great Environment with great people. Great career paths and management really cares about your well being. When you want to learn about solution sales and not just selling to sell apple is the place

    Cons

    of course working weekends, but that is retail. There was a bit of favoritism that causes tension between employees but overall great work environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to stop the favoritism, there were lots of initiatives that were not followed through, The store leader Tully was the best boss I have ever had

    Pros

    If you like to help people with passwords

    Cons

    Managers are from other retail stores, they rarely train or hire from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring former Best Buy and Circuit City managers and train your own people so the culture is maintained

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive pay, wonderful coworkers and a challenging work environment. It is a top flight company for a reason.

    Cons

    Upset customers have been conditioned by years of excellent service to expect instant gratification, which can only sometimes be achieved. Sometimes one has to be patient with impatient people.

    I enjoyed the freedom of being who I am and enjoying working with people. The culture of Apple is amazing and the best at taking customers through a journey.

    Personal development is encouraged but not as supported as expected to be. Opportunities for growth is limited due to positions available.
