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

    Pros

    People made everything worth it. The product was amazing and exciting to tell customers about. Leadership and culture was invested in my growth and development.

    Cons

    There really weren't too many. Sometimes politics would show up among management and get in the way of developing others. Really depends on the specific store you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget that serving the team and customers is the only true way to achieve greatness

    I worked at Apple part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment.
    Great people.
    Good pay and benefits.
    Advancement opportunities, if you pursue them.
    You learn a lot about how to interact with people of all cultures.
    No commission, so selling actually feels legit.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Weekends (it's retail so it's expected)
    Some holidays.
    Unique work environment, in that they are very serious about how the business is conducted.
    It's Apple, so expect Apple people, they take themselves very seriously.
    After about 3 or 4 months it's just another retail job.

    Advice to Management

    Management wasn't ever a problem. They were actually very understanding, and would help you out with whatever you needed.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay with great benefits. The pay is above average and the benefits you receive such as healthcare, stock options, tuition/fitness reimbursement even as part-time are great.

    Cons

    Some downsides are politics in terms of moving up and the disregard for work/life balance for your availability and scheduled hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more empathetic for part-time employees who are in school or have other commitments for their availability.

    Good benefits, fun team, and chance to experience different areas within the business. I love the diversity of the team.
