Former Employee - Graduate Intern in Cupertino, CA

I worked at Apple as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

I loved the company culture, people and work. Everybody was very encouraging and got to learn a lot from them.

Cons

Not that I can think of. Just that team was full of highly experienced people and hence could not get a ful time.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great team to work with
    -Nice Apple and 3rd Party Discounts
    -Benefits for Full Time and to some extent, part time (Public Transit vouchers as an example)
    -Get to be very personable with customer in helping with a purchase
    -Pay is higher than most retail stores

    Cons

    -Ignorant/impatient/rude customers.
    -Demanding hours for when you are in school (15 minimum)
    -3 weeks in advanced to request off
    -Too many people drink the Apple Koolaid
    -Depending on the store, too metrics/numbers focused (AppleCare, One to One, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be understanding of those in school. Depending on the major and school, 15 hours a week at a retail store is taxing. Apple Retail is also very busy and extremely stressful, so that makes it more difficult. Also stop looking at the percentages of AppleCare and other attachments. Yes the employee is a sales person and that is one way how you measure a sales person's skill, but there is much more to that in Apple Retail
