    Pros

    Great Job, hard to keep a good work life balance though. Very challenging. Very rewarding.

    Cons

    If you don't like to be busy, do not work here. Hourly could be a bit better as well. Otherwise great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share career experiences with other more often. Other than that management in Apple retail is fantastic.

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere, nice facilities

    Cons

    The Cupertino culture has not transitioned well to Austin, and is being drowned out by the mass of former Dell and Amazon employees.

    Current Employee - Creative in Boulder, CO

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -high energy social environment
    -quality coworkers
    -technologically advanced
    -high variety of job types
    -solid benefits even for part time employees
    -company has good presence (globally/socially)

    Cons

    Its low income.
    The retail environment means dealing with the public at large. If that is not your thing then this probably isn't the job for you.
    A lot of people want to work for the company. You may feel easily replaceable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My listed low income con says more about our current socioeconomics than my feelings for Apple, Inc. Will big business companies cut profit margins and pay retail/service employees a higher wage? I doubt it if quality applicants continue to apply and accept a meager bargain in compensation. My intelligent, creative coworkers work hard to please a demanding public while selling an amazing product but typically have to acquire a second source of income in order to succeed financially.

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

    Pros

    - It is actually the company where I have learnt a lot, from a human and managerial perspective.
    - You can develop yourself by taking trainings.
    - It's really cool to discover your customer's needs and come up with a bundled complete solution that really helps her/him/them.
    - Before Steve Jobs passed away, you could run and lead many different personal projects
    - The people at Apple are amazing, creative, welcoming, genuinely caring

    Cons

    - Salary? do you call that a salary? Seriously?
    - Apple Retail Stores and Apple Corp. are definitely two completely different companies, and no bridges from retail to corp.
    - The senior management is amazing, inspiring, and very helpful, whereas the mid-management comes from retail and probably don't get the spirit of Apple because of all their KPIs, but no commissions... Awkward...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People come to Apple Retail because it's a dream come true. The credo is a good way to motivate people but hierarchy is so short that opportunities are scarce.

    Pros

    Stets sich wandelndes Arbeitsumfeld mit laufenden Veränderungen.
    Viele Möglichkeiten der persönlichen Weiterentwicklung.
    Tolle Produkte, hinter den man auch stehen kann.
    Man kann sich hier richtig austoben, wenn man möchte.
    Stress-Resistenzund provokatives Verhalten erforderlich.
    Hohe Standards in jeglicher Hinsicht.

    Cons

    Manchmal hat man sich gerade an etwas so sehr gewöhnt, da wird es wieder geändert. Dauernde Umstellung ist also erforderlich.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-Life-Balance wird zwar gefordert, aber die Zeit für die Erledigung von Aufgaben ist meist viel zu knapp, sodass man Wege sucht, die Arbeit anders zu erledigen. Es kann passieren, dass man sich Zuhause Gedanken machen muss, weil man auf Arbeit nicht dazu kommt, klare Gedanken zu fassen.
