Pros

Working with as a team with unique and extraordinary individuals. Enriching the lives of customers and through living Apple Retail's Credo. Working with the latest and greatest innovative technologies and consumer products.Offering experiences that no other retail companies comes close to comparing.

Cons

Some Customers have bad breath which makes it difficult to speak to them closely. Sometimes during busy periods, it is difficult to request time off (ie. summer before back to school and the holidays). Employee Purchases, for new take at least a month and have to be made online to receive Employee discount on products.

Advice to Management

Managers have good and excellent customer service though as technology company, some managers require more technical training.

    Pros

    Apple fosters an extremely positive work environment, including enthusiastic managers and staff, as well as opportunities to work with some of the coolest technology on the planet. The services offered in-store go above and beyond anything I have seen anywhere, from training customers to sharing stories about what you can do with the technology to make your life better, Apple is a company that truly goes beyond expectations.

    Cons

    The benefits offered part-time staff are pretty minimal compared to other places I have worked.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider better benefits to part-time staff.

    Pros

    If you believe in the brand then working for Apple is a dream come true. The people are friendly, for the most part the managers are competent. The discount on Apple products is good - up to 27% - and the occasional free iPhone/iPod helps to sweeten the deal.

    Cons

    Beware - there is no career development at Apple Retail. Vague statements like "the company is expanding rapidly - there are so many opportunities" and "you have to make your own positions" are used to stave off any criticism. This is particularly bad for "Mac Geniuses" because their role is technical in a retail environment there is no where else to go. Also, people performing exactly the same job earn different amounts. Because pay is considered confidential, if you raise this with a manager you potentially face disciplinary action for discussing your salary!

    Advice to Management

    Look after your good employees better.
