Pros

Friendly atmosphere, easy to enjoy work, strong coworker bond. Frequent workshops to help boost employee knowledge and skills.

Cons

Standing, walking alot, little to no opportunities to sit down aside from break. Very difficult to move up in corporate ladder, they make you jump through quite a lot of hoops.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier for entry level employees to move up -- giving them the illusion of being in control of moving up when it's actually at management's whim isn't cool.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is generally a great place to work, but keep it in perspective. It's retail, not everyone's dreamland. Working with customer's was entertaining and sometimes challenging. Not to mention being surrounded by Apple nerds, which I consider fun.

    Cons

    Retail hours suck, there is no way around that. Also, the quality of management fluctuates significantly which can lead to significant frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to evaluate individual's contributions and reward those who work hard, and get rid of those who don't.

    I worked at Apple part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Can be fun somewhat, but don't expect a warm fuzzy "welcome to the family" approach after your 2nd month. It's ok in the beginning, but the claws come out around the 3rd month.

    Cons

    Staff is mean spirited & VERY clickish. If they don't like you, the co-workers will make it difficult for you on a daily basis. Hours are also very UNFLEXIBLE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to move up the ladder & out & take care of your people.
