    I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic team, good discounts and benefits.

    This could be a pro or a con. As a part time employee I sometimes worked close to 40 hours a week.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits, incredibly talented and creative employees, Leadership that truly cares about its people.

    Cons

    It's retail and there are many unreasonable customers with ridiculous expectations. Apple works too hard to make those type of people happy.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Good benefits, and great EPP

    Cons

    Tough to advance, it seems they don't hire management from within, even if the employees have management experience. They always seem to look at places like the Gap, or Banana Republic.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Apple is a great place to work because everyone seems to get along really well. A lot of customers think that we work off commission but we do not and I like that. I feel that if we did then there would be a lot more tension amongst the employees. They are very good when you request time off (as long as its 2 weeks in advance) as well as allowing you to switch shifts with people and they really try to make it fun at work and not like a "day at the office."

    Cons

    Of course not every job is perfect, and even apple is not an exception. One of the main issues is that we do not receive our schedules until a week or 4 days before we are scheduled and its hard to plan your life around that. Also, your schedule changes every week which makes it difficult to plan other things because you never know when you will be scheduled. It is also sometimes very redundant because we are selling all the same things to some very obnoxious customers!
