Fast paced environment with great coworkers & crappy management - most of the time.

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

Pros

• Great Benefits
• Get to work with some of the greatest minds in the industry
• Work with purpose
• Unveil new technology and educate customers on how it can improve their lives

Cons

• Upper management is close minded
• Employees are under valued
• Company is one sided when reporting misconduct from Management (sides with management)
• Doesn't matter how long you've worked there; everyone's expendable
• Long hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees more and listen to them more. Happy employees = happy customers. And stop hiring the rejects from Gateway, BestBuy & CompUSA; those business' clearly didn't work out for very long. Don't infect yourselves with inferiority.

    Former Employee - Apple Retail Specialist in Pasadena, CA

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

    Pros

    At Apple, there is a saying: "Its soul is its people." I'd agree. While at Apple I had the opportunity to work with some of the most creative, brilliant, and outgoing individuals that a retail environment can offer.

    The really is a an Apple culture can be defined as individualistic. At Apple they want your own creativity, and individualism to be your strength. They capitalize on quirkiness, friendliness, and exuberance.

    Cons

    At the retail level the cons are the same as any other retail job. You have irregular scheduling throughout the week which puts a damper on creating any type of consistency. Be prepared to work holidays although Apple does do holiday pay which is great!

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

    Pros

    People focused, innovative, exciting and cutting edge. Company values and culture are exactly what you would expect from Apple Computer. Great pay and wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    Extremely fast paced, and still retail at the end of the day. You will have goals to meet, most of your day will be spent on your feet, hours can be long and tiring. Shake ups in leadership, more recently, have resulted in a dip in company culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clearer direction and a more focused outline for employee career pathing and personal growth. Communicate openly.
