I worked at Apple

Pros

Great group of people that come from diverse backgrounds... You can learn a lot about the products, on a day to day basis. If you love Apple, this is the place to be at.

Cons

Meeting your personal metrics is a priority for the store - managers deny it, but it is basically a sales job... If your good at it, you'll last - if not, good luck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep looking at everything else that make great employees - not just the metrics. It's harder to measure... but that's what differentiates someone that loves to work there vs. someone that's just a great salesperson.

    The Worst Working Experience of My Adult Life

    Pros

    Great products, exciting atmosphere, diverse customers, many wonderful people to work alongside, and occasionally great people to work under.

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid, and under-appreciated. Disparate employee expectations; the social circles you travel in dictate what you can get away with. Plenty of nepotism and favoritism to go around. Crazy hours and scheduling; Apple's expectation is that Apple always comes first in your life. Constantly being made to sign nondisclosure agreements (literally every day for an entire week). Time Clock which, despite Apple's amazing technology, somehow manages to shave clocked hours on a regular basis. Worst ever aspect was being instructed to racially profile customers, to ensure that products are getting into the hands of "promoters", and being instructed to refuse sales to customers who don't fit the bill (yes, really).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, as it is fruitless to offer such. Apple does as Apple will.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Its a great environment to work in. Your coworker are great and the will help you get acclimated with ease. Management is understanding and they act more as friend with constructive feed back than managers. The company is really about personal development and help you becoming a better person because that's what will generate the highest ROI. Your people skills and communication skills will see a dramatic increase because you have to interact with so many different people from different backgrounds. How do you teach a 78 year only women how to make beats on Logic Pro? Its interesting and you'll have fun at work.

    Cons

    As with any retail, there will be peak seasons and slow season. when the slow season come around, you will see a drop in you hours if you are not full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Your goal should always be to develop leaders and not employees.
