    I have been working at Apple (More than a year)

    Pros

    The position is at home. The company is AMAZING. There are limitless advancement opportunities. You work with some very cool people and the leadership cares about your development. You may get coaching but you never get battered or belittled. The pay is decent and the benefits include, 401(k) match, stock purchase options, product discounts and discounts on services across many different areas, education assistance, child care assistance, paid vacation, sick time and other time off options, health club Reimbursment or bike cost set off. You get 1.5 time for OT and it's pretty much unlimited as long as you don't exceed 12 hours in a day or 59 total in a week.

    Cons

    The schedule changes every 90 days and you have to bid for your shifts so you never know what you are going to get. This makes it extremely hard to plan your life to far in advance. You are also pretty much assured to work a Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice to Management

    The management consists of a team manager and their area manager. Meetings are held over video and chat. They are supportive of individual development and help you to reach your goal. Management will challenge you if you want to advance but it's always in the spirit of making you better to prepare you for the next role.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We work with geniuses - in every department, We create innovative products that thrill our customers and create new product categories - who else can say that?

    Cons

    ZERO ZERO ZERO work/life balance. Execs have been saying for YEARS that they understand and will make it better. But in actuality, it gets worse every year! It is obviously top management LIP SERVICE because if they meant it, they could fix it tomorrow. They have hundreds of BILLIONS in the bank. If they REALLY cared about employee work/life balance, they could bring aboard the right number of folks to make that issue dissolve. Sick of hearing the lies. Just don't lie about wanting to fix it, when they clearly DON'T care

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

    Pros

    Excellent work environment as you get to work from the comfort of your own home. The people you meet and work along side (though strictly via video/text chat and email) are amazing! Everybody believes in fostering growth and enhancing your skills. The type of dynamic most folks have with their Teams and Managers is inspiring. Working for Apple made me realize a lot about myself in order to become a better person.

    Cons

    Your work schedule, though flexible, is set for anywhere from a 3-6 month period. The pay is excellent but the environment can be very stressful. Management is mostly competent and helpful, but a few bad eggs do make it through. Reaching out above the normal escalation path is frowned upon, so getting to your boss' boss is difficult without them knowing.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment with a knowledge to learn from internally and externally. would definitely recommend applying even if its part time.

    Cons

    hard to move up, can be political with advancement but you have to learn to work hard while being the peoples choice as well. No commission even though you'll make the company a ton of money. Apple products pay for themselves but the workload can be overwhelming when comparing to other retailers. they should pay atlas 1% commission or give a bonus. not fair to all the part-time college students trying to do there life best work, while thinking about how they need more hours to afford gas and food.

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

    Pros

    I wish I had this job before I got married and had kids because this is the best way to earn money while staying at home and saving on gas. This pays very well for entry level job and Apple takes good care of you with the benefits

    Cons

    Chat is 24/7 365 days a week so no break for the holidays for anyone who enters that group

    Pros

    Access to great technology, on the cutting edge. Always the first to hear about first new technology and features. Extra lightning cables. Great discounts.

    Dealing with irrational/upset customers. You can only deal with so much sometimes in a given day, however management is very good at resolving issues and being extremely supportive.

    Work with stimulating co-workers and products. Apple on your resume opens doors.

    Be more transparent with your team in guiding them.
