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

    Pros

    Apple University helps employees learn the culture of the company. The benefits are top notch! Working with "A players" means you are pushed to be your best self.

    Cons

    Apple sets a high bar for performance. It can be difficult to meet quotas.

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

    Pros

    You get to meet interesting people while working in a fun environment.

    Cons

    The managers micromanage everything. The opportunity for advancement is there if you kiss up. Work life balance needs to improve tremendously.

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

    Pros

    Strong Team, Cellular Carrier Discount, Free 200 GB iCloud storage which can be shared with family

    Cons

    Poor/Immature Management, poor pay, no Christmas gifts or bonuses. If you got a bonus it was stock in Apple which you couldn't sell for 3 years and if you did you would receive less than 1/3.

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

    Pros

    Great overall environment with coworkers. Allowed for some individuality - both in wardrobe expression and daily operations.

    Cons

    Dealing with customers is certainly a part of retail, but we get a lot of heat from customers from decisions that corporate makes. And then, most of the time, we give the customer what they want anyways. Not to say that's wrong, but it messes with the standards and adds to the "other Apple Store does it" argument. Additionally, as a part time employee hours can range from 15-30 hours per week - at least that's what the paperwork says. I was getting scheduled for about 28 hours a week consistently while also in college. This was fine until I realized that my academics were suffering, so I went to my managers and asked to reduce my hours. I was denied that because "there aren't enough people...we need you...we have to have everyone on deck for Saturdays and Sundays". That's certainly fair, but I didn't believe it when I saw leave requests getting approved left and right and continuous callouts throughout the whole section going unstopped. My biggest gripe was the lack of scheduling flexibility. I heard that there was room to grow and experiment with different jobs, but never got to experience that as I eventually ended up having to quit after a long attempt to reduce hours. When I started not "meeting standards" for my position, I asked to move to a different section. I was again denied by basically being told to "just do better" in all aspects of my life - even after I said that this job was affecting all aspects of my life negatively and I really thought that moving out of my section would be better for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Great company/team, flexible schedule, plenty of learning opportunities, high pay for retail

    Cons

    Need to be willing to transfer to other stores or apply to corporate if you want a management/high level position

    The store is always freezing. Other than that, its an awesome place to work.

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

    Pros

    Great people, work with some of the brightest and talented people around, benefits are better than average for a retail job, chance to experience all the newest technology first

    Cons

    There is no room for growth (at least at my particular store), management is not flexible regarding other obligations outside of work, ultimately it's still a retail job and you will deal with some of the craziest human beings on the planet

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    People are nice; they are friendly and cool to be around. Everyone is every knowledgeable. They know all the products inside out.

    Cons

    Not very many downsides to working here to be honest. The main thing I think is a minor con would be the fact that some people

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, discounts, best health insurance I've ever had. It was a Family Envoirment, everyone works as a team. Apple encourages all creativity and accepts everyone to be themselves. Meaning if you have blue hair, peircings, tattoo's it's ok. Truly the best job I ever had!!

    Cons

    When hired, my schedule was flexible, then new management came in and that changed. The pay is above average for retail, just hourly rate, no commissions or bonuses. So there's no increase of income other than annual raises. Also, to advance its limited, therefore you will need to relocate for opportunities. It's retail and standing for 7.5 - 8 hours a day is required and the only padded area on the floor is behind the Genuis Bar. So make sure you have comfortable shoes.
