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

Pros

There is a great culture within the retail environment - awesome people with a common goal to impact customers' lives. I felt very supported by leadership, and that I was a valued member of the team. Having Apple on your résumé says a lot to potential employers as well!

Cons

The compensation versus the amount of work that is required does not encourage lasting employment. Once you've moved as high up as you can (short of a management position), there's not a lot of opportunities to develop yourself and do something new. Most Apple corporate jobs require a lot of prior experience that cannot be obtained in a retail store. The hours are also rough, but that's an unavoidable aspect of working in a mall.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and encourage your employees to challenge themselves and try new things. Schedule someone to man the phones so your Business Specialists are spared the incessant ringing and covering of someone else's responsibilities.

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

    Pros

    The heart and soul of Apple is truly its people. An employee knows he or she belongs to a world class company that takes deep pride in innovation, quality, and people. Apple is very keen on the details, yet sees past each detail and sees a person's true character.

    Cons

    There are none. The incredible Apple culture truly recognizes and values their employees' passions. An entire company that legitimately encourages oneself because of the positive impact it may have on the entire community will always have pros that far outweigh any con.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to NPP.
