    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Benefits are top of the line. No employer I have worked with has been able to match Apple's benefits package. - This place is awesome for team building and gaining experience leading up to management. - Management truly cares about your development here. - Pay is one of the most competitive in the industry. - Schedule flexibility - Plus, who honestly doesn't like the benefits of working from home? - Promotion possibilities are endless - I love the culture of working for this company. It is a creativity based company that always look for out of the box solutions for issues.

    Cons

    - You may be working at least one weekend and one major holiday season. - You have to be a major people person for this role. There are a lot of positive minded customers, but you will be speaking to some bad apples, no pun intended.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good discounts and reasonable pay.

    Cons

    Poor commitment to promote from within, best opportunities either were hired out for or given to people who transferred from other cities. It’s not bad a bad job if you don’t care about career development.

    I have been working at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employee discount. Flexible schedule. Please see cons first before assessing ..

    Cons

    I had always wanted to work at Apple. The culture seems so welcoming and inviting. They frown on being technical in the very long interview process. But once you’re in they have no training structure. They fill you will apple core value fluff for 3 weeks , one week reading massive amounts of online course work. That are not realistic. They let you shadow other reps. But most are so arrogant in being the expert they move fast and you miss important information. They tell you half of what you need to know and you are expected to figure the rest out. and then throw you on the floor. Most often doing product zone (something they didn’t train you to do) if you make mistakes the admins are jerks and even some of management. All the team friendly and passionate culture..It’s totally fake. And that’s an understatement . Oh and you have to work 5 years to be genius but you basically die the same job as then and you take harder appointments

    Pros

    Educational, Fast paced, Open minded. The people you get to work with are what make the job. You own your own development. Great company values and culture.

    Cons

    I see it as a career booster/starter career to open up other opportunities to others either within or outside of the company. Apple retail compensation may be ‘considered’ competitive in each market to the company but most companies in AMERICA need to improve imo. 45-50k minimum a year should be a starting compensation package not 30-35k for the technical expertise and efforts required for the high amount of traffic coming into the store.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Benefits are amazing! The people are too. Work-life balance is the best.

    Cons

    The pay for specialists, including experts and pros, is low when compared to other positions that get paid much higher. As large as Apple is, the salaries could be better.

    Pros

    Fun Job, Active, Interesting. The atmosphere is always upbeat and the people are great.

    Cons

    Hours are rough, not much room for growth. If you're a college student, you'll most likely leave after college because it's hard to get out of retail in Apple.
