Pros

Drinking the Apple Juice right from the beginning. Training is great. The products sell themselves. Is not commission based, at all.

Cons

Hard to move up, a lot of competition. You have to be contracted in a lot of the time, and can be let go for no reason.

Advice to Management

Apple is making a lot of money. They should hire their contracted employees. 1/2 sales jobs are contracted in through other companies.

    Pros

    It was always rewarding to come to work at a place that filled people with excitement and wonder. I was able to train people on how to use their devices for the first time and felt a strong sense of pride in knowing you had enabled a student who had never used a computer before.

    Cons

    The attendance policy was overly strict & caused a few well respected long time employees to lose their jobs. Absences for illness were also tracked in a strange way. The posted schedule had a tendency to change without notice, and the online schedule system was frequently inaccessible.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the need to have a strict attendance policy, but this necessitates a better system for employees to know when they are expected to be at work. An online scheduling system that is frequently down is not a solution that works.


  2. Fun in between job, but not a place for long term growth

    Pros

    Apple is a fun place to work. The employees are great and the customers can be kooky but they are rather terrific as well. If you are passionate about apple products, you will enjoy yourself immensely. The Managers are also helpful in personal development. The benefits are out of this world, even for part time employees and they are only getting better. Also, the job isn't commission based so there is less pressure to sell and more camaraderie amongst employees

    Cons

    There is not as much room for growth as I would like. After a while, it is easy to feel dispensable. The turnover rate can be high, there isn't much flexibility with hours, and it gets difficult to manage a good work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent! It often feels like there is something going on that we don't know about. Also, encourage growth amongst employees.
