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

    Pros

    Working for Apple Retail in a technical support role was a wonderful experience, the pay was adequate and the benefits were great!

    Cons

    The hours were the only downside to the job, but being retail there isn't much to be done about that.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits

    Cons

    Compliance in any state mandated disability differs from manager to manager. One manager was able to meet my work restrictions, but my team was transferred without notice, and the new manager removed and refused to work with my restrictions. I was intimidated out of the company and reminded their company could afford better lawyers than me.

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

    Pros

    I love Apple for a number of reasons. 1) it challenges me constantly to get better at what I do in the store and also as a person in general. 2) Apple does a great job as a company at equipping retail employees for the unique and varied roles they will fulfill in the store. 3) since I am a rare breed in that I’m a part-timer who has no intention of going full-time, I appreciate Apple’s willingness to be flexible and help me have the best work- life balance possible, or for me the best work-main work- life balance possible.

    Cons

    I can not think of any cons for someone working part-time at Apple in my role.

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

    Pros

    Good medical benefits. Good discounts, very easy job to do, good co workers. Stock options for full or part time employees.

    Cons

    Retail job + bad management = terrible time. Does not matter your track record, or experience, if you are not in a position to make your managers look good, no promotions.

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

    Pros

    -Perfect work/life balance. -Decent working hours (earliest was 7AM CST, latest was 10:30PM CST) -Great pay for an entry role.

    Cons

    -Push back from different roles if you tried escalating an issue. -In my Senior Advisor Role, I had issues with a manager and I couldn't do anything about it. I had even requested a team change and they were unable to do that. -If you leave the company it's pretty much impossible to try and get back on.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits... there's nothing like it. Single, working mom of 3... full insurance makes other companies that pay higher wages seem like chicken feed. Employee discounts and employee support is out of this world. Upper management value everyone and see what they have to offer. Positive intent goes a long long way in work happiness.

    Cons

    That all being said.... customers can be demanding, rude and brutal... at the end of the day you may question your existence and ponder if life is worth living. But.. then you look around at your co-workers who are all absolutely amazing, lean on them and soldier on. However, once you're in.. getting rid of a bad apple is tough which can be a drag. These are rare, but you have to make sure you follow feedback and go to the store manager if it gets bad enough to affect your work happiness.
