I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible(ish) hours; decent salary + commission structure; pride in getting to say you work for Apple; decent employee discount for personal and friends/family; relative freedom in this position as you work largely on your own.

Cons

Have to work weekends all the time; management doesn't truly listen to concerns about traffic and general business, they just want more sales and don't care how you get them; if store traffic is down so is your commission (generally);

Advice to Management

Stop forcing ASCs to treat their role as if it's their own business - they have no control over most of what happens in the retail store they are placed in (Best Buy or Future Shop) and are little more than glorified trainers/sub-managers. Listen to your employees when they talk about traffic, demographics and other concerns - don't just brush it off saying it's the same everywhere. Guess what? It's not.

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

    Pros

    gets you out of your comfort zone. Things are always changing and you have to grow and evolve with it. Prepares you for many different situations whether its for work or personal.

    Cons

    Canadian management is long in the tooth, lack-lustre and don't really have any truly corporate executive experience.
    -Too much kowtowing to US management

    Advice to Management

    Fearless feedback should be followed. leaders should be LEADERS. my self esteem has suffered because for over a year, i was told only what i was doing wrong and how horrible i was at my job. 99% of my customers loved me and requested to work only with me yet when i made a mistake i never heard the end of it. quit singling people out because other employees notice. i am so disappointed in this company.
