I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Got to be a part of some of the most iconic launches of this generation. Worked with an extremely talented group of people. Got to help a lot of people.

Cons

Pay could be a lot better. Review system could use some improvement.

Advice to Management

Assume positive intent.

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

    Pros

    It was a second job and I always said "If I have to have a second job, I am really glad this is the job"...

    Cons

    Communications were a bit of a challenge on occasion due to the limited number of hours I was working (16 hours).

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

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have worked with. Talented, creative, and just a joy to be around (not including management). Had they not been there, I would not have stayed for as long as I did.

    Cons

    At first, management was welcoming, made everyone feel at home and would support your decision with a customer regardless of who they were. Then, a new shift in management came through and were micro-managing to a ridiculous degree. Also, they were unsupportive of the workers unless you were considered a "favorite" by which I mean, you had to think like them.

    Also, be prepared for some grueling conversations with customers, most likely getting sworn at, and learning to get a backbone if you don't already have one.

    Expect no vacation time, unless you ask for it in the summer. You run by their schedule and only their schedule. I was not able to visit family for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Spring Break.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the people you work with. Respect them and they will respect you. Micromanaging is not the only way to get people to do what you want. There are many other ways to lead a group of people. Also, back up your team. If you don't, how can you be a leader?
