    Apple Inc is your typical corporate company. They leave you very little work-life balance, and everyone is uptight.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    I am given the opportunity to deal with different people every single day, providing solutions and repairing their devices. Having worked countless retail jobs, this is by far the best opportunity someone can get in retail. Granted, I have only worked at one apple location, however the people who i get to work with make the experience very enriching.

    Cons

    The best can often be the worst. I really enjoy my colleagues and fellow employees, however often find inconsistencies with management and overall team communication. This is no one person's specific fault, and in fact can never be permanently resolved due to relatively high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management overall works very efficiently and well. Often times communication between members of management can be improved.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    The coworkers were the best. Training was engaging and positive energy consistently flowed throughout. Awesome medical benefits and great employee discounts.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime hours, tons of training modules to cover. Must be a fan and owner of Apple products to understand the complexity of troubleshooting these products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment selescted the right people to conduct their training. My particular trainer was outgoing, engaging and was extremely passionate about Apple. You don't see this often in employees. Good job in picking that one!

    Excellent caring management. Many options for advancement to mid tier positions. Excellent benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that Family Room Specialist is a harder job than Genius and pay them equally.
