    I worked at Apple (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment for personal and career growth. Excellent coworkers. Fair compensation. Benefits available for part time employees including healthcare and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Superficial at times. Job becomes repetitive. Limited upward mobility for part time employees. All the negative stuff that comes with working in retail.

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

    Pros

    Typically great team members. Lots of love for those people. Great benefits for a retail job. Great pay for retail.

    Cons

    Retail hours pretty much suck. Also management can get a little high and mighty. I worked in a mall and that can obviously be miserable during holidays (and not)

    Advice to Management

    Don't be mean

    Pros

    The interactions are great. You can learn from everyone, coworkers and customers. Management will support your decisions to help people out.
    The team is usually very social and caring.
    Inventory is a breeze.
    You feel good after a day's work here.

    Cons

    It can be incredibly challenging dealing with the masses of people in a sometimes crowded space.
    It's hard to have certain conversations with difficult clients.
    Every situation is different which can lead to frustration.
    Sometimes it's hard to find supplies in appointments.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there are enough supplies behind the bar so that we aren't fighting for something as simple as a lightning cable.
    Continue to encourage feedback, it drives the culture.

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

    Pros

    A huge emphasis on innovation and doing things the right way at the top of the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the directions of the stores and markets diverges from what the corporate level says.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the reason you're in business and what consumers really come to Apple for. The crazy high level of customer service and less emphasis on sales was what set Apple apart.
