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

    Pros

    Apple delivers amazing products to its customers (I was an Apple fangirl long before I started working for them). That is the biggest pro. Job wise, benefits were good, as was the 25% off employee discount (and the $500 off computer or iPad every three years). Flexible schedules for students.

    Cons

    As an At Home Advisor the work day got pretty boring as your whole day was spent answering phone calls for the same product. Difficult to take time off (at least my manager wouldn't allow us to take time off, even unpaid, if we didn't have the vacation time), which seemed ridiculous considering it was an hourly part-time position. This particular position caused lots of stress to myself as well as others on my team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My particular At Home Advisor Manager was very inexperienced (it was her first time as a team manager). I would recommend that a first time manager has a "coach" that is involved just as much during their first year so that things run smoother. Or increase team sizes and give each team multiple managers of varied experience.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Working with Apple products all day
    allow for great flexibility

    Cons

    you can ONLY advance if the RIGHT people like you
    Some managers were lucky to be in the right place at the right time but they often lack the skills needed to do their job well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure Managers have at least a bachelors degree because it shows when they are lacking reasoning skills
