I worked at Apple

Pros

Over, working at Apple Retail is an awesome experience. The training is fantastic and really thorough, the management are supportive and provide feedback constantly, and the people you work with are (for the most part) fun and easy-going. It can get crazy in the store at times because it's usually super packed with customers, but the facilities and processes that Apple has in place make it easy to get things done faster, simpler, and more efficient.

Cons

Growth is definitely there but you're constrained to the roles in a retail environment so eventually it seems there would be no were else to "grow".

    Pros

    Great Leadership. Flat org. Always working with the "A" level people in whatever discipline. It was well stabled there was a true caring for the lives and balance of work life here.

    Cons

    Tendency to get folks to work to the breaking point before they get support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder at anticipating burn out. Look to be more competitive with the wages.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Fun place to work
    Meet lots of cool people
    Part time benefits are very generous
    Great flexibility (for part timers anyway)
    Decent salary for retail
    Annual raises for good reveiw

    Cons

    Management treats EVERYONE like they're a teenager
    Salary not enough for what they expect
    Lots of ambiguity-rules change constantly and you're expected to know all the changes
    If you don't know something youre mocked for it
    Information not shared freely among co-workers. Everyone wants to be "the star"
    You think we'd get some free products sometime for meeting goals. Never happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know you're trying to be consistent, but there is a huge difference between an 18 year old and a 46 year old! Do not treat us as such. Encourage more knowledge sharing and don't make people feel stupid for asking questions even if you think they should know the answer.
