Current Employee - AppleCare Advisor AHA in Gainesville, FL

I have been working at Apple part-time

Pros

- Flexible
- Understanding of Student Schedules

Cons

- Very little room for error
- Whenever you call in sick or miss a day it counts against you much more severely then many other companies. 4 missed shifts in 6 months can constitute grounds for dismissal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide a more clear path for advancement and recognition

    Current Employee - Specialist in Philadelphia, PA

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