    Not a place for long term career path

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCan learn a lot of new skills

    ConsSenior management is disconnected with the core teams; direct labor acts as union even though they aren't, not a good place for those who want to work in culturally diverse atmosphere or for those who want to drive for change

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to hire more skilled direct labor and require them to speak, read and write English, enforce boundaries on the customer and not let the customer dictate the day to day operations and people management of the business

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not a Career Place to Work

    Apple Repair Tech (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe only positive to working here is that it is experience you can put on a resume. Though the skills you learn are not readily transferrable (depending on the department you work in), it does expose you to a technical field if that is what you are looking to get in to. I worked in the Apple department, and since all of Apple's repairs are done in depots similar to this one you are unlikely to repair an Apple product outside of one.

    ConsI'm writing from the perspective of an Apple Repair Tech and all my feedback is representative of a person in that position. The biggest drawback for this job is the compensation. I was originally hired on as hourly for a reasonable rate. About a month into my employment everyone was switched to piece-rate (meaning you get paid per unit you repair). In my opinion the pay per unit was insulting and I only continued working there until I found a better job. Management continues to tack on more and more administrative duties to the techs that have nothing to do with repairing computers and pay nothing for it. At the end of the day the excessive amount of non-computer related work impedes good technicians from doing the job they were hired to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with dignity, pay them better, and stop treating the technicians like a one-stop labor shop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A little tough.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall company atmosphere, access up the ladder from time to time.

    ConsPolitics. Fingerpointing. Everyone cringes when certain Director levels enter a meeting because they introduce misinformation, encourage finger-pointing and rarely know what they are talking about (while giving direct orders).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome bad apples (in management) are ruining the barrel and preventing recovery/efficient business. You should take action.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
