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

    Pros

    Good compensation for retail; strong company values for environment and community; fun products and fair amount of training. Easy to move with Apple in terms of transfers to other locations.

    Cons

    Bad hours (retail, as expected), not much growth for career development. Not many (if any) incentives for staff to be motivated or high performing.

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

    Pros

    Cool staff! Rad people. (Some of them management, even)

    You get okay medical benefits. And can buy stocks on the cheap.

    Cons

    The hours are a joke. If you like having two days off in a row DO NOT WORK AT APPLE RETAIL. You never, ever get two days off in a row.

    Also, you'll never make more than 20-ish an hour. Ever. Unless you fully commit to management, where you give up on having any kind of personality of your own and only ever speak apple-approved statements and fully give up on any kind of non apple-approved personal life. So if you're a grown-up and have kids or a mortgage, just keep on looking in the job market.

    The brand is so huge and has its head so far up its own butt that they never even noticed when they turned into the technology version of Wal-Mart. And would deny they even have done so... all while harassing you that a tiny logo on your hat or pants or the way you looked away from the front of the store for eight seconds is a "career limiting move".

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. Don't micro-manage so much. (Though, light research on the web shows that you're incentivized to do so, f**k. Whatever.)

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

    Pros

    True support from leadership. You are actually empowered to make decisions and don't feel like you're being micro managed.

    Cons

    Schedule is based on mall hours of course, so there are many times when you're working the entire weekend for several weekends in a row.

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

    Pros

    Pay, hours especially during holiday season, the team environment. Tenure counts for something, unlike other places they actually care about you and your progression as a person and employee

    Cons

    Slow progression to different roles within the retail spectrum. You need to make your superiors aware that you're a value able asset for a raise as well
