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

Pros

You will get to help people in one of the most fair, committed and customer-friendly retail experiences on the planet. The products are fantastic, and the people you will work with, in the vast majority, are young, excited and motivated.

Cons

The pay isn't great for the effort you have to put in - you will make the same as zero-effort retail roles in other stores, yet be expected to do so much more. Retail runs to 7-day availability, so don't expect weekends off, or to nominate days off.

Advice to Management

You need to incentivize, and pay your staff more. The level of professionalism in Apple Retail is high, and for the level of service we consistently deliver, the pay is not.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Salary was really good, but it took me some time to see that money won't buy happiness and contentment.

    Cons

    Management is horrific and utterly unprofessional
    Employees are not being taken care of (I worked every(!!!) single weekend for over one year, plus late shifts for 4 months consecutively)
    Employees are treated as cash cows (see above)
    No loyalty whatsoever
    Two of my managers threatened me with termination for no decent reason and told me my leisure time would get hold off my job which needed to be talked about (WTF)
    Area managers somewhat unprofessional and narrow minded
    Career opportunities only given when crawling into other manager's backside.
    ...

    This list is actually barely exhaustive.

    Advice to Management

    Not necessary as nobody will listen anyway.
