    Current Employee - Family Room Specialist in Columbus, OH

    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

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Apple has a very solid culture of respecting employees and offering challenging work that will change the world.

    The important thing to know is that you should be ready to make opportunities for yourself and not sit around waiting for someone else to hand you a dream assignment. You need to network with other teams and be aware of what's coming. With that information, get yourself in front of the hiring manager and let them know you're interested.

    This is how you have a great experience at Apple. Take charge of your future.

    Cons

    Not so much a con as advice that applies anywhere. Apple has a range of managers with varying levels of skill at managing.

    Ask good questions of any prospective manager to find out how they manage in certain situations. How do they recognize above and beyond contributions from their directs? How do they manage conflicts inside the group and between groups? What professional development programs do they have in place for their directs? There are many other questions and I encourage you to search online for some more.

    Your manager is the single largest influence on whether you enjoy your job. Take the time to get to know her/him in the interview process.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Perks: lots of travel if you like travelling to Asia, dynamic workplace, high expectations, high performing. Good salary, DRI mentality, freedom to take decisions and navigate product.

    Cons

    Test engineers are not usually the best of the best though, usually get the grunt of the work without any thanks, are at the end of the pipeline with no say in decision choices.

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

    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.

    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.
