Pros

- Most of my coworkers were great - Apple really brings in quality people - Management led (as opposed to ruled) and were truly a part of the team - Corporate did not simply forget about retail - any communications came to the ENTIRE company (getting an email from Steve Jobs and later from Tim Cook was pretty neat) - Corporate actually listened to its employees and made several changes in retail based off of employee feedback in my year and a half there - Positive attitude most of the time - Encouraged a great team environment - No commission for retail, so it is not cutthroat - Extremely laid back overall

Cons

- Tons of interviews to get the position (I did six interviews for the retail specialist position - although this filters out most bad eggs) - The store sometimes pushes getting a certain quota a bit much at times

Advice to Management

Great thing is, when I had advice for management, they actually listened while I was there. Top notch company.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for retail. Store managers are genuine. The product discount is great. Apple is a very clean work environment. Great opportunity to learn fields of work you may be able learn elsewhere.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Some employees get away with doing far less work than others. This forces those of us who work hard to work even harder. It seems like no matter how many times some calls out sick they never get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay for those who deserve it. Promote managers who deserve to be promoted.


  2. Wonderful experience, but many contractors including myself were not hired direct!
