    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Full time and part time tuition assistance, vacation time and health care. Discounts! Pay is really good for a retailer. Apple employees are some of the best co-workers I've worked with. There are also plenty of opportunities to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Part time is great during holidays, but after the holidays, the hours can sometimes range from 12-16/wk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hours for part time employees

    Pros

    Great benefits all the way around. You won't regret working for this progressive company and if you work hard you will be rewarded for your efforts.

    Cons

    This is a no non-sense environment. Apple is one of the top brands in the world so you are expected to be excellent by everyone on the outside looking in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time.

    I worked at Apple full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Your colleagues are some of the coolest, most intelligent, and diverse people around. The people that work at Apple, actually care about it being a good work environment and also about doing well in business.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but because a lot of people want to work for Apple, Apple doesn't have to pay much to draw in good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't actually have any advice. I was rather impressed.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy going work floor, very lax with sales numbers, really about the customer experience.

    Cons

    Although you are put into different roles while being a specialist, the job can get stale after a year or so. There's only so many Apple ID password resets you can do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate team a bit more, extremely talented work force and hard to get into, utilize the potential of all employees.
