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

    Pros

    Felt like I was getting paid to befriend and teach some amazing people. I loved the products since the 80s and the environment was electric, exciting and there was a lot of love at my store despite 3 management changes in 4 years.

    Cons

    The richest company in the world made over 50 billion while I worked there and paid poverty. As a part time Specialist working 30+ hours, I was rewarded by qualifying for an earned income tax credit. The quality of the Specialist staff seemed to decrease. HR seemed to be moving away from hiring "Apple Fanboys/girls" who brought a wealth of knowledge to the table, to more of an Ex-Gap/Ex-BestBuy who are learning on the fly.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for increased quality of workers. This is a job not a Career (w/ a capital "C"). We want to be able to afford the products AND a family who can live in a comfortable little house. Too much to ask?
