    I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can enjoy lots of Holidays and welfare obviously.

    Cons

    Most of your promotion and rotation opportunity is based on the feedback result from the customer. Which is so hard to get even a feedback in the Asian culture. I have a colleague had been told that if he would not get 4 promoters (positive feedback) he will be terminated.

    if you are working in retail, Apple probably the best in the market. But if you are finding a meaningful job, which you may passionate about. I suggest you firstly, understand what you like to do. Secondly, consider apple as an normal retail store. please.

    Advice to Management

    Change the system give incentive to a customer. Put NPS into a store wide not a personal matter.

    Pros

    Easy to apply holidays, extra holidays every year beside bank holidays. Salary is above average In HK. People are in the same age group.

    Cons

    Too many people, too much competition if you want to get promoted. Some retail store in HK are becoming a nanny company, the management tries to control every aspect of the employees, eg. Where to stand to the floor, no talking between colleagues, what you can wear under the uniform,etc..

    Advice to Management

    Attention to details.
