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

Pros

Working at the Apple Store is a fun and energetic experience. Every customer who comes in the door has different needs and different problems. Finding the solution that fits that customer is very rewarding. The company treats it's employees well and promotes training for advancement inside or outside the company. The benefits help offset the low retail pay. Insurance for full or part time workers, 401k, profit sharing and product discounts are nice benefits.

Cons

low pay and bad hours are all a part of the retail experience.

Advice to Management

Don't regurgitate what you learned in your training to your employees. Too many of the pep talks to employees are canned and unimaginative. To use a cliche, think outside the box.
