    Pros

    Thourough training. Company's comittment to its products, services and employees is as revolutionary as its computer technology.

    Cons

    None, really. Downside of working retail is dealing with unreasonable customers. Fortunately, the numbers are small with Apple. Apple stands behind its products and services and bends over backwards to make all customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have some kind of incentive plan for specialist or see a higher hourly rate.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great products, warm fuzzy feelings everytime you see white headphones. Everyone in the world knows and loves your products. Lots of the people are great (and smart!).

    Cons

    Zero information or support for career or professional development. Turning the crank is the name of the game. Look elsewhere if you want career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    At least let people know how they can get promoted. The bad project management and opaque scheduling isn't making anything very easy.

    Former Employee - Back of House Specialist in Tucson, AZ
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Apple was a fun company to work for but mu experience with the Tucson Apple Store was less than enjoyable. Cool technology and good environment is the right locations. Kansas City was a dream.

    Cons

    Childish co workers with petty high school issues. Management is stale and phony lacking true direction but is excellent in keeping the image of direction. No room for advancement and no recognition from the top. Tucson has been forgotten

    Advice to Management

    Be a real person with your team. Be transparent with your thoughts and feelings and do not play the whisper in the corner game. Know when you are not effective and be strong enough to admit your mistakes instead of unloading them on your subordinates.

    Pros

    Absolutely loved working for Uncle Steve. The corporation, even as a corporation, was a great thing to be a part of. Loved the services I provided to the public, even when they were challenging and unappreciative.

    Cons

    I had things thrown at me by customers who were less than satisfied by the company line. But that kind of goes with the territory of working technical service in any industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the store weird. Keep retail small. Always be accessible. Teach them well and always have faith that your employees are looking out for the company's best interests.

    Pros

    Great perks in terms of getting free software, etc.; fun to be associated with the brand.

    Cons

    Way more pressure than most commission-based sales jobs. Consistently sell products customers don't want or get let go.

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and evaluate which products sales goals should really be based on because the ones necessary to sell are a little ridiculous.
