    Pros

    Apple hires amazing people in retail. Your coworkers become family.

    Cons

    Virtually no way to climb latter. Put more stock into interview skills than actual work ethic and results. With retail hours, there is not a whole lot of work life balance if you do something on the side.

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunity to move to other roles. Collaborative.

    It was retail so there's that. Otherwise, Apple's core values were seen company wide.

    Help your employees help you
