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

Pros

Great culture of incredibly intelligent and passionate peop, plus good benefits for even part timers, like stock purchase plan, hardware and software discounts on not just apple products, but third part accessories.

Cons

Can be difficult to get in without an inside connection.

Advice to Management

Look from within before going outside when hiring. Also, allow more time for training.

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

    Pros

    Work on the bleeding edge of tech. Coworkers who are not management are great people, and just as passionate about company as you are. As a creative, you work mostly with people who are satisfied with their products already, and just want to learn more - not traditional customer service where a customer comes in frustrated with a problem you have to fix - thats a job for the Genii.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor hours, poor scheduling, poor pay (they will absolutely take advantage of the fact that people love the idea of working for apple and there is no shortage of those who are willing to work for little pay no matter how valuable you are), poor recruiting, poor communication, very little opportunity to move around in company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth, not what the market dictates. Obvious profiteering, a part time sales person is able to easily move close to 500K worth of product in a year but is only paid 12 dollars per hour? Very greedy.

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

    Pros

    Nice company perks for employees around the holiday time, so no complaints in that department--at all. Overall, a cool experience.

    Cons

    The work schedule can be a bit demanding for someone who prefers a work-life balance, but definitely not too intimidating. Also, I wouldn't suggest anyone who isn't people person to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Care more.
