    I have been working at Apple full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people that care and good pay. Best structure for growth I’ve seen in any company. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Biased hiring process. Retail = on your feet all the time. My location has the worst parking situation. No gripes with my actual duties.

    I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team. Seriously, they definitely hire people that are made to work together. Everyone got along so well.

    Cons

    The pay is decent, but without additional skills, its difficult to foster any actual growth there without a ton of work. Gotta play in to the game a bit. The management team was definitely the weakest link, Though to be fair there was some changeover that probably caused confusion.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    The growth you will get from this job is amazing, they help you work on your strengths and weaknesses. very customer oriented, you get to meet tons of great people internally and outside.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for moving up in the company. You're pretty much in the same position for your career unless they really like you then you have a shot of being something different

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Salary is location based but benefits are outstanding! Management is the best i have encountered thus far in a 25 year career.

    Depending on your field, there is a bottleneck of advancement and sometimes a salary cap but you can move laterally if you need to.

    I worked at Apple part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great discounts - not just on Apple products. Made friends - attracts similar people, generally good attitudes within the store. Cool factor Paid well Learned a lot

    Cons

    Time off was unpaid. Scheduling was always an issue. No sick time - attendance policy is strict. Customers can be crazy - spent 70% of my time resetting apple IDs. Pressure on the family room means trouble customers get punted to red zone. Leads to worse NPS. NPP didn't really have an effect. Managers are often politicians.
