Pros

Working at the Apple Store is a fun and energetic experience. Every customer who comes in the door has different needs and different problems. Finding the solution that fits that customer is very rewarding. The company treats it's employees well and promotes training for advancement inside or outside the company. The benefits help offset the low retail pay. Insurance for full or part time workers, 401k, profit sharing and product discounts are nice benefits.

Cons

low pay and bad hours are all a part of the retail experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't regurgitate what you learned in your training to your employees. Too many of the pep talks to employees are canned and unimaginative. To use a cliche, think outside the box.

    Pros

    Innovation, great people, and you really feel like you're someplace that's changing the world. I loved it there.

    Cons

    You get a sense of being out of the loop at times. Various departments are shut off from one another. It's very competitive too.

    Pros

    The Benefits are truly amazing... They cover so much... They give you $100 for commuting every month, pay 150 of your gym membership, health is awesome...
    The people are great, both customers and co-workers.
    You're given different things on different days to do (Phone room, Greeter, Personal Set Up, etc)
    Pay is excellent as well!

    Cons

    Lots of managers.. so it can get confusing when you're told to do one thing, and then corrected... then corrected again... A lot of competition for any position in the Family room (Family Room Specialist, Creative, Genius.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be supportive.. give fair chances!
