    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    There is emphasis on development and learning. The benefits are unparalleled and help contribute to employee futures. The work environment is challenging and face paced

    Cons

    The retail hours make it tough to have a family with 9-5 hours.The availability policies create terrible work life balance. Beyond the Genius level there is little opportunity for growth in the technical side of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be aware of all employees desires for development and needs for scheduling and do not adhere strictly to by the book policy enforcement.

    Pros

    Apple is a great place to work. Flexible with schedule (college students) must be 18.

    Our people (employees) are you unique. Very diverse fun people work at Apple.. & can't forget smart.

    Pay is better probably better than any other retail store.

    Cons

    Retail- holidays- weekends - nights

    Hard to get hired if you don't already know someone who works for apple. Yes it is about who you know.

    I worked at Apple part-time

    Pros

    As a company, they truly do believe that making every customer happy is the best way to do business and not to just try to upsell them every chance they get. They strive to make the workplace much more cooperative and make your coworkers feel closer together than simply people you see when you punch in.

    Cons

    It is almost always crowded no matter what store you go into and the extremely fast pace can be off-putting for people that cannot handle it. Customers definitely do get upset when they need to wait, which can sometimes be an obstacle to overcome as soon as you begin helping them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like all retail settings, managers can sometimes promise more than they are able to deliver or follow up on.
