I have been working at Apple as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Freedom, nice management, great product. Rewarding some how

Cons

Contractors are second class citizens, secret promotions, secrets, secrets secrets. I felt like I was onyl there because the computers would not be able to do it on their own.

Felt not valuable

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, employee stock purchase plan, a ton of free software, amazing peer coworkers, significant product discounts.

    Cons

    Poor store management (across multiple stores), long hours, terrible work/life balance, not as well-paid as one would hope, and an attendance policy that borders on draconian.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the attendance policy, pay your employees what their worth (especially in technical support, where they get yelled at regularly by customers), and provide better facilities overall at all stores.

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

    Pros

    Newest technology, great training, good perks, set your own hours as a campus rep.

    Cons

    Can be a lot of red tape on campuses. Not much opportunity outside of retail after you complete contract.

    Advice to Management

    My managers were awesome in the program.
