I worked at Apple

Pros

you get some great benefits and competitive pay. Moving on to ANY other job - mentioning apple is almost a guarantee in.

Cons

Huge work load. They were very demanding and at time they would actually set their goals higher than reasonably attainable according to your situation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more attainable goals towards each individual instead of making them equal for everyone. Offer more help and understanding if an employee reaches out to you.

    I have been working at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Working with amazing, brilliant, intelligent and funny people. Apple can afford to be extremely selective in the hiring process, and it shows in the caliber of the people they employ.
    - The pay is far above average for retail.
    - Part time employees are eligible for benefits.
    - Great discounts on Apple products as well as some third party products and services.
    - Good environment for learning technical skills and troubleshooting
    - Apple looks great on your resume.

    Cons

    - Like any retail environment, your mileage will vary based on location and management. Culture can be very different from store to store.
    - The vast, vast majority of hiring for full time, career level positions is done externally, despite the kool-aid about development and opportunities that is poured down your throat during training. No matter how good you are at your job, there's politics and favoritism when it comes to who gets promoted.
    - As a Specialist, you will deal with hundreds of angry people with broken devices that you can't fix and the next genius bar appointment may not be for hours- or the next day. A lot of stress and rage will be thrown in your direction for things that are not your fault and that you can't change.
    - Scheduling is terrible and inconsistent, making it hard to maintain a work/life balance, but again, I don't fault Apple for this necessarily as it is standard for retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The world's most successful company could be doing a lot more to take care of their employees. There is a huge gap between the way employees are treated in retail and in corporate.
