Apple is definitely the best retail experience of my life.

Pros

They have amazing benefits and "learn at your own pace" training that really lets you dig deeper if you want to. I feel like I could read all day about my job and never learn enough!

Cons

Sometimes the exact path to help someone else or yourself isn't very clear. (They're definitely working on this.) Also, it can be a very high stress job if you let it. Sometimes people aren't happy with what their device is doing, even if it's their fault, and can blame you.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing! Have more positive feedback to Specialists in general, it makes us feel better!

    Pros

    Its a very fluid work environment, and definitely different than any place I've ever worked, the interview process was fun and engaging.

    Cons

    SUPER strict, don't think about coming in late. Overtime shifts during product launches are super crazy and people are a little to heated

    Pros

    Fun, good discounts, good people, great perks. There was opportunity to grow and visit Cupertino for certification, but I only wanted part-time work. Plenty of free software, discounts on products from third-parties, and even cellphone service.

    Cons

    Pay could have been better, but I was only looking for part-time work. The store was located inside a mall, so you're basically a mall employee, just like the sales folks at the Gap or Brookstone. Parking at the mall was pretty bad and not safe at night.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the good people and get rid of the slackers.
