Former Employee - Mac Specialist (Apple Store) in Albuquerque, NM

I worked at Apple part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great technology. Fun working environment. Great way to see the inside thinking behind one of the greatest retail stores. Meet amazing people (both customers and co-workers). Management is fair, and always willing to work with you. If the store is busy, management will often allow you to extend your shift if you're willing to do so.

Cons

I never really felt management was encouraging towards employees regarding promotions. Often, it is difficult to find time to use the online training tools or shadow another position because the stores are always so busy, managers can't afford to have you off of the sales floor. You will almost always work all major holidays and product release days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many of the employees who work in the retail stores are incredibly smart. More often than not, the employees are doing work that they are extremely overqualified to perform. Seek those employees out and help them gain their full potential.

    I have been working at Apple full-time

    Pros

    It's exciting to work for a company on the forefront of technology. Leadership is always upbeat

    Cons

    They seldom promote from within. I've seen full time sales people, genius, and especially managers mostly come from outside the company. The company blows at promoting from within. Whatever you're hired as is where you'll remain

    Pros

    The people you work with here will be friends for life. Apple has a lot of really nice people.

    Cons

    The customers. It is your fault. Their iPhone is broken and they must make this very clear to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They work pretty hard.
