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

Pros

The coworkers are awesome and the benefits are many. There are also many different career experiences that you get to partake in.

Cons

If you don't like meeting high expectations to perform then this will not be the job for you.

Advice to Management

I think that some of the higher positions should get paid better. The job is very demanding and the salary doesn't compete with similar positions elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    Challenging retail experience allows employees to grow and learn so much every single shift. Not knowing everything is okay - learning with the customer and using plentiful resources is encouraged.

    Cons

    Critical thinking/questioning of the rules/status quo/"business as usual" is not encouraged. Each shift was incredibly draining - spending eight hours in this kind of retail environment demanded being 100% present 100% of the time. Opportunities for personal development were few and far between, despite management touting otherwise.

    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for San Francisco employees. Free parking and public transportation are huge pluses.

    Cons

    Spoiled, privileged customers, coupled with severely underpaid and overworked employees working inconsistent hours in a constantly noisy and crowded store. Along with intentionally prohibitive management on corporate career paths provides very little incentive, motivation and morale for employees to care about anything.

    Tim Cook and his board runs a tight ship, makes the company profitable and has no need to care about expendable retail employees. No matter how its employees are treated, Apple Retail will always be the shining beacon to those who have never worked within its walls.

    I will never work retail, ever again.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees can't pay rent with pretentious "thank you's," no matter how much you think you mean it when you say it to them.
