Pros

There is a great culture within the retail environment - awesome people with a common goal to impact customers' lives. I felt very supported by leadership, and that I was a valued member of the team. Having Apple on your résumé says a lot to potential employers as well!

Cons

The compensation versus the amount of work that is required does not encourage lasting employment. Once you've moved as high up as you can (short of a management position), there's not a lot of opportunities to develop yourself and do something new. Most Apple corporate jobs require a lot of prior experience that cannot be obtained in a retail store. The hours are also rough, but that's an unavoidable aspect of working in a mall.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work and encourage your employees to challenge themselves and try new things. Schedule someone to man the phones so your Business Specialists are spared the incessant ringing and covering of someone else's responsibilities.

    Pros

    — A positive, dynamic environment, every day.
    — Seldom a dull moment
    — Every day is a learning experience
    — Being surrounded by and working on computers all day
    — Opportunities for advancement abound
    — Meeting new people every day and solving their problems

    Cons

    — It's easy get bored if you don't have the right attitude or become indolent
    — It's difficult to move up if you don't really try hard/expect to be given opportunities (nothing special from any other job)
    — Working with the public can sometimes be difficult, especially given our demographic
    — When there is negativity, it shows, and it is difficult to work around

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide for paths to corporate from retail, especially for part-time employees!
