I have been working at Apple full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Best retail job you can ask for. Great benefits, good pay, better culture than most. Paid vacation for full-time.

Cons

Lots of politics in the workplace, and can be a little cultish at times. Have to be willing to drink the koolaid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot of favoritism is present in most stores.

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

    Pros

    Good Company to work for innovative, leading edge in consumer electronics, has methodologies to follow.

    Cons

    depending on the current administration at your job locations, you are either in and good up the ladder or put aside because your management is not favoring you at the moment. Everything is done by consensus. If one person out of 19 does not feel you are qualified for the job or promotion, you will get black balled. I've seen it too many times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a third party opinion ,outside of the small mgmt click that ends up making all the decisions, not necessarily for the right reasons. Sometimes doing the right thing is not as important as following the flock.

    Pros

    You learn a lot and get to network with a bunch of great people. You learn the best sales skills and how to interact well with the public.

    Cons

    It winds up being another corporation and working for another job. You get lost in the slew of other employees and they tend to be much too focused on sales and numbers.
