    Former Employee - Sales Associate in West Nyack, NY
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great technology. Innovative products that work without complaints from customers. Clean, safe environment to work in. Talented people work there, but not in the management ranks. Good discounts on company products for employees.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to sell add-ons, even if the customers don't need them. Store management is hired from the shoes & socks retail stores and don't really understand technology and the sales cycle. Management runs the store like a high school. Management under-estimates the talent of the employees. The store manager is king in this environment and if you don't make her happy, your job is over. Sad, very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let Apple hire more competent individuals. Go back to selling women's clothes. Let sales people take the time to develop the trust with customers. They'll then refer other customers to you.

    Former Employee - Mac Genius in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    In the apple store your fellow employee are the best reason to go to work. The in store employees are great people. The healthcare, stock options and employee discounts are great. You get to learn about the newest apple products. Depending on your position you may be able to learn new skills or practice your passions while at work. For every 1 bad customer there are 100's that make going to work fun.

    Cons

    Management cannot/does not make consistent decisions. Working a constant shift is impossible. Standards for mac genius got lower and lower as the time passed. Employee suggestions were never taken into consideration. Management has little to no working knowledge about technology. The one bad customer can make the 100's of good ones disappear.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees make happy customers which makes money.
