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

Pros

About Applecare:

- For a Customer Service department, working under Applecare is very rewarding.
- Many opportunities to move up, move to Engineering or QA
- Working under both Steve and Tim, other than the announcements, operations are the same.
- If you work with integrity to do your job as requested, management will have little to no qualm with you.

Cons

When you create the bubble of self-entitlement and lower the technical barrier of entry to its products, customers tend to expect the world. Anything less than perfection is criticized. Look at the stock prices after product announcements. Look at the general media criticizing Apple for things that other companies such as Microsoft easily get away with. The double-edge sword of success.

Advice to Management

When people say Apple has not released a great product since Steve, those are people that will never be happy. Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great job environment. Never have to take your work home. Hours are always available to work. Benefits within 3 months even for part time staff.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities slim. Must schmooze your way to internal promotions. Must be available to work 7 days a week. Retail hours. Work/life balance not the best. Pay does not always reflect all the responsibilities given.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for advance,met to internal employees

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

    Pros

    The entry pay was above minimum wage for a specialist.
    The company seems to care about their employees.

    Cons

    The store can be sort of clique-y and standoff-ish at times.
    Business team quotas were a bit much and turn out to be awkward and forced a lot of the time.
