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

    Pros

    This company pay for school and a lot of room for growth. The company has great benefits and the retention rate is high. Hard to leave the company. This position is not commission based as other retail companies.

    Cons

    There is not much to say about the cons. Being part-time is that you don't have your week-end free.

    I have been working at Apple for more than a year

    Pros

    The transition was pretty painless coming from the Red Zone. If you show interest and perseverance you will surely be able to make the switch quickly. As for how the roll is, I have to say this are much better now. Yes, it is a more stressful environment, but if you treat it very systematic and don't let customer's attitude get to you, then you'll love it. Much less to worry about that sales.

    Cons

    For a company that vomits they are not "numbers focused" constantly, they are very numbers (metrics) focus. But they do it in a way that is "under the table". I know it sounds shady, which its not, but near me out. They constantly tell you to focus on customer service and numbers. But whenever you have reviews and/or are looking to move up, numbers will be a huge deciding factor. And let's say you don't get what you applied for, and it was for numbers, they'll say it in a way that sort of seems like it was that, but not really, but yes. This might not make seems, but that's exactly what my experience was. I've been through three different store, 2 different states. All that same everywhere.

    Great environment, great co workers, and leadership. Leadership will help you develop so long as you put in the effort. Health benefits cannot be beat! List goes on!

    Cons

    There is some politics but that is present in every company. Just work hard and try to be vocal about your development

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Computer discount. The fun people you work with.

    Cons

    Disrespect from managers- they treat people as less than them. Poor store leadership. Geniuses-who also treat people as less than them. Poor pay. The "cult-like" atmosphere. The pressure to upsell add-ons: Mobile me, applecare, onetoone.
