Pros

- Flexible Work Schedule
- Great Staff
- Great management teams
- Great pay
- Great philosophy
- Great work environment
- Feedback from employees is appreciated by management and acted upon

Cons

- Communication from Top to Bottom is sometimes lacking (however management knows this and is taking steps to resolve it)
- The place is surprisingly "mechanical" - lots of processes and procedures. Like they say, consistency is critical.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Keep working with employees to come up with solutions for issues in the stores and the company.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, that make it worth coming in to work. Great salary compared to similar retailers. Every day is different.

    Cons

    Rude and loud customers who get what hey want for being rude and loud. working retail hours, weekends and evenings. Only know your work schedule, one week in advance. Management almost recognizes when you do a good job but is very quick to give you negative feedback when they feel you're not. Almost no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize hen your employees are trying hard and doing a good job and tell them!!!

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    cool technology
    High profile company
    Apple is liked by consumers
    cool discounts.
    Being close to the leading edge of popular technology
    Stores are centrally located
    Decent healthcare benefits and discounted stock options
    Chance to help people be creative by providing them with tools to enhance their creativity.

    Cons

    terrible schedule
    Managers overpaid, underperform
    Very busy stores, overwhelming
    Recognition hard to get.
    challenging work is not compensated fairly from employee to employee. Large disparities evolve in pay between members of the same team.
    Lots of corporate rules and metrics you are expected to meet.
    Security cameras keep close watch on staff, not customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on the floor and support your staff
