    I have been working at Apple part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training, progression, job selection all these things and more. Would tell everyone to apply. Had been and continues to be a great job,

    Cons

    Nothing really the pros outweigh any cons. Can’t think of anything worth sharing. This is a great place to work for.

    Pros

    Benefits are still better than my friends who have much higher paying jobs. They can't be beat.
    Apple is pretty good at hiring people that fit the culture.

    Cons

    It takes a long time for leadership to reprimand people who don't work hard and recognize the people that do. The attendance system is also very "grade level" - I've seen incredible people get fired because they were consistently "late" by 2-4 minutes. A time that other jobs I've had didn't care about and that doesn't effect our stores or teams negatively. Not having a grace period and/or respecting people as they are individually is a huge con. "I understand you exceed expectations in every way and are dedicated to helping the company succeed but those two minutes really effected your team negatively." (Face palm)

    Advice to Management

    Have been in two stores in two different states. One thing that's consistent is the hiring, but management also goes through cycles of groups that don't fit Apple culture. A huge factor has been when we hire from outside. I've noticed the most supportive, fair, and best managers were those promoted from within. Managers from the outside tend to also promote people they haven't had a long relationship with and therefore promote people who deserve it less than people we see work harder and represent apple culture better. So you'll have a cycle of managers that are very well fit for their jobs - but then the Senior Manager will come from a company that doesn't fit our culture at all and will transform the leadership group negatively.

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Truly a family, from corporate down to retail it feels that everyone has the same goal and that the employee comes first no matter what. If you want to grow within the system then they are 1000% supportive.

    Cons

    If you are using Apple as a job while you are pursuing outside goals, then there isn't a lot of upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Give same opportunities to people who seem like they want to stay with Apple and those who you may think doesn't because you never know who you can inspire to stay.

    Pros

    Open relationship with managers and Market Leaders making it easy to be heard. They listen to your feedback to improve the workplace.

    Cons

    Not easy to get promoted within Retail into Management. Political in a way where if you have children and some management experience, you will get pushed ahead of someone else more qualified which can be good and bad.
