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

    Pros

    The pay is great, it's a fun environment to work in, Apple works hard to find only the best people to work with. Get to sell some of the best technology in the world. Apple has her own way of changing with their customers to make it I'm like a used car lot

    Cons

    Very busy on the weekends, customers with unrealistic expectations, don't get commission for anything you sell

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the strengths of your people and recommend them to positions where you know they will make the store better

    Former Employee - Mac Specialist (Apple Store) in Natick, MA

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Apple is great to build experience with sales.
    Encouraging management.
    Clearly articulated goals.
    Amazing onboarding and training program.
    Discounts.
    Camaraderie amongst co-workers.
    Engaging with customers and helping them learn something new.

    Cons

    Little room for growth. Don't expect to start as a specialist and move to genius. They're two different worlds according to management.
    Often found that although I was better at helping/repairing software/hardware issues, got stuck in specialist position and told to focus on sales.
    You end up selling $10k+ a day with no commission.
