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

    Pros

    Even as a pet time employee, you get great benefits. The work-life balance is on point. The work is fun if you like talking to people.

    Cons

    There is room for growth but it takes a long time to build the competencies to move on to other better paying positions.

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

    Pros

    Absolutely kind and diverse set of employees; you learn something new every day and gain great knowledge and experience in a field and at a place that nearly everyone is familiar with/uses in everyday life.

    Cons

    They ask a lot of their employees, but very understandably so. You're dealing with people's finances and extensions of their lives. It's sometimes high stakes, but very understandably so.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Apple part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Learning about the best technology out there and sharing what you know. Loved making sure customers left with the right technology for their needs.

    Cons

    Hard to be taken seriously if you are over 50. Take a look around the store and see how many hipsters you see and how many specialists are "grownups".

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The team you lead will be the most rewarding experience of your life, they will teach you priceless lessons and you will become the leader you were meant to be

    Cons

    I was terminated for “misconduct” long story short I defended a fellow manager and employee from a customer who was claiming we are racist (mine You I’m a person of color as well) he ended up calling our corporate office and it lead to my termination, I assure you I did nothing wrong, but better to sacrifice the one manager of color, then stick up for him doing the right thing.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great culture! The management is great, products are fun, and you learn so many life skills. There aren’t many companies like Apple out there.

    Cons

    Most employees don’t get paid enough. Especially with what they’re asked to do. Apple is going to need to be more competitive in this area.
