    I have been working at Apple full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Very friendly people. Comfortable relaxed. No pressure for sales goals. Management is very relaxed and don't pressure you.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything negative to say about the company. Aside from the fact they make you feel as they give you more than what they do and you should be greatful.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Go to Work Dressed Casually Every Day, Alot of Part Time Benefits, Good Pay, Alot of Nice People

    Cons

    Discounts could be better, Barely any Work /Life Balance as shifts could be 9 hours some days,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the Employees an their needs and wants, also Bring back "Customer Satisfaction" and More technical expertise on the Genius Bar. The Promotions and People you may hire sometimes are sometimes not the best choices.

    I worked at Apple full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, you won't find these types of benefits at any other job

    Cons

    It seems like management doesn't really care about you. They pretend but appear to be fake!

    Advice to Management

    Genuinely care about your people. Stop faking it because we can tell.

    I have been working at Apple part-time

    Pros

    No place is perfect, but Apple does come close. Apple as a company cares about their employees, have awesome benefits, and make sure that their employees are happy. HR is very efficient.

    Cons

    Not every store has a great management team. Some management teams promote based off of favoritism, making employees feel like their hard work and efforts are pointless. Managers are hardly ever on the floor, so they do not know what goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Promote off of work ethic, make sure you are present and aware. When an employee tells you they want to work towards another position, truly help them. Do not set expectations and then let the employee down.

    Pros

    Apple fosters a creative, liberal environment where the employees can be and develop themselves. Apple's retail division, in regards to technical support, gives employees many great training and certification opportunities, as well as almost limitless access to resources external to the company. The sky's the limit to the employee that applies themselves.

    Cons

    Retail schedule is a bummer, no 9-5 scheduling truly available. Leadership shows difficulty following through with procedures and having developmental discussions. Significant divide between retail and corporate treatment of employees for work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to speak to someone if they need to develop and aren't following protocol.
