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

Pros

Very unique and fast paced environment.

Cons

Long hours, low pay, often feels like you're not really making an impact on the real world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ultimately inspirational speeches are not as powerful as a raise.

    I worked at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people there are amazing and it is really easy to make friends. You find that you fall into a niche somewhere within the store. You never have to work overnight, and there is always a lot of free food

    Cons

    It's still a retail company, and even though they like to lure you in with the "We're different than other companies, we don't have a lot of levels to go through" you still have to deal with all the corparate nonsense that goes along with it - Example: I loved working there, was a hard worker and ended up clocking in 1 minute late one day. That added to a couple days I'd taken off earlier in the year ended up with me having to go into review and ultimately being let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pretend to be friends. You either are or are not, but you are still a manager and you need to do your job.
