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

Pros

Very unique and fast paced environment.

Cons

Long hours, low pay, often feels like you're not really making an impact on the real world.

Advice to Management

Ultimately inspirational speeches are not as powerful as a raise.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Decent pay for a part time retail job (you will work hard for it)
    -Lot's of training opportunities
    -On average most colleagues are intelligent

    Cons

    -they say you don't have to meet a sales quota but you most definitely do. If you don't you will be let go. This is fine since it is a sales position but know that they will not tell you this. Make sure your numbers are on point!


  2. "Low pay, high stress, no bonuses."

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

    Pros

    Engaging work environment with creative-minded peers. Bragging rights. Being forced to embrace change. Health care coverage. Benefits. Free software.

    Cons

    Apple is run like a startup company, even though those days are far behind them. The pay can be terrible, depending on the store's staffing budget. Be prepared for sales goals with no incentive plan.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for middle management vying for promotion who start an overlapping series of projects and foist them on unsuspecting sales people in the hopes that upper management will see it and promote them.
