    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Educational Reimbursement
    EPP
    Pay compared to other retailers

    Cons

    MOST MANAGEMENT
    Apple hires 99% of managers externally; internally expect to stick around for years before promotion unless you're in a new store
    You will not have a life

    Advice to Management

    The southern California market specifically is crammed with subpar managers that are so lazy and disinterested in anything but their paychecks. I've experienced this in 3+ stores. Prepare to be very very frustrated in SoCal Apple stores.

    I worked at Apple as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to say you work for apple. The culture is great and you get to work on an iMac all day.

    Cons

    You start off as a volt contacted employee. You are treated like the step children no one wants. They have separate meetings for you and Apple Standard employees to really make you feel like you're special. Ive seen managers fire people just because they didn't like an individual and even when they had incredible numbers. A lot of politics at Apple they tend to hire people who kiss ass rather than having hard working employees. You are at a call center and under paid for the hours you work and bs you put up with on the phone.
    Not the best of jobs but like I said it is retail and it is "Apple" I don't know how many people last over a year as many people get burned out after a year or so.
    Also so many Volt employees go in a year ins literally impossible to get on full time. They only open up reqs like once a year and like I said numbers don't really matter if you can kiss the bosses ass the most you will probably get hired.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the micromanaging especially when its an inbound call center.
