Pros

A work environment that allows you to be yourself. The people that you work with and work for make the experience what it is.

Cons

The pay could always be better, but in Apples case, they have so many people who would love to work there, that they can offer a less competitive salary and still get great employees. The environment and work keep people around, but the salaries in certain rolls only permit someone to go so far.

    Pros

    Incredibly friendly and helpful community. Apple cares more about its people than its products, and you can tell that when you work there.

    Cons

    There is really nothing bad that I can say about Apple. I only ever worked part-time at Apple and loved every minute of it. If you can deal with angry customers, you'll be fine.

    "A menial job that is perfect for those who are quick to drink the "Kool Aid". Looks good on one resume though."

    Pros

    -Apple (corporate) is "hands down" the most innovative and intelligent IT company in the world.
    -Looks great on the resume (have to not include the retail part.)
    -Decent product discount on computers and ipods (no iphone)
    -health care after 1 year of part time service.
    -cool to talk about technology all day and get paid.
    -great college job

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -low respect
    -Depressingly dead end
    -There is a perpetuated story that retail employees will have chances to move to corporate, this is pure fiction.

    -Full of "failed to launch" art school alumni
    -It is easier for unexperienced outsiders to be put into management positions than current employees.

    -the GAP-ple retail joke is true

    Advice to Management

    Allow the ground troops to move within the company. There is a lot of genuine talent in retail, but it all leaves when better jobs come around. Low pay really exacerbates this.

    -To Stop the leaks at the bottom, allow upward expansion.
