I worked at Apple

Pros

You get paid high in the beginning. Coworkers are fun to work with. Get to meet a lot of interesting people in the silicon valley stores.

Cons

People hired after you get paid more and you can't discuss pay with management because you sign an agreement not to reveal your pay to other specialists. Fearless feedback is a joke. I've gone through giving fearless feedback only for no change to happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees when they give you fearless feedback. We know how much our coworkers make so don't belittle us with less pay. Experienced specialists should get paid more than inexperienced, not the other way around.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    I wouldn't have been able to obtain the knowledge I got elsewhere. Definitely the most engaging thing on my resume.

    Cons

    Apple Retail is hit or miss when it comes to management teams. It can be a great experience if you get the right people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually make the career path from retail to corporate legitimate. It really feels like a lie. No "programs" that will "eventually" get you there, give your own employees first dibs at the jobs in the company. As a mentor, I felt like I was lying when I said there was a definite career path to corporate.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Salary and benefits package are the best in retail

    Hours are very flexible

    Environment is very clean and enjoyable

    No "dress code" or uniform

    Cons

    Very high paced environment. Sometimes stressful

    Since Apple is such a high volume business there is a lot to keep track of

    Some information has a hard time being dispersed among employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do a better job at communicating to us in a timely manor! You guys do a great job of actually providing the information but getting it faster would be great.
