Pros

- Flexible hours (24 hour store)
- Great team(s) to work with.
- Management was deeply involved whenever needed and necessary

Cons

- Growth is highly dependanton "hidden" statistics
- Very hard to fit in with the existing staff at times.
- Management seemed uncaring at times (probably because of such a large staff in store).

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were really passionate for the products and Apple did a great job of letting you express yourself. We got to test drive new software, and work with people from all walks of life. It made the days go by quickly.

    Cons

    Getting a job is tough. Once you make it in, there is limited opportunity for advancement. Good luck getting full-time work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up career paths for new employees. There are some who do not desire to work entry-level retail their entire lives.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In a nutshell, Apple helps you grow as a person, teaches you things school never did. Any experience you have here, you will take it with you forever. Good pay, diversity, positive, a happy place to be!

    Cons

    It may get very political, if management does not approve of you and they are not willing the help you, they will find a way to get you out. Just like any company, sometimes scumbags slip through the cracks, unfortunately, these people make it to the top and run away the people that are worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, if they raise a concern over a a peer or someone above them, try to find out the true reason of the concern. Sometimes things are forgotten and the bad people get rewarded.
