I have been working at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Smart, hard working people who care about the products they work on and are always willing to go the extra mile.

Cons

Some leadership issues. There's still a fair amount of empire builders mixed in middle and upper management ranks.

Advice to Management

Keep working on cleaning up the older, outdated methods which keep down enthusiastic talent. There's a perception that becoming a manager is a success story at Apple, and not everyone is cut out for that. Mixed in some really good divisions are leaders who are too focused on themselves and not inspiring others.

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

    Pros

    You are selling the best products that every body wants. Pretty chill laid back work environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes management can be blinded by the numbers they must hit and not put the customers or employees first.

    Advice to Management

    I'm pretty sure you can afford it and if you want better sales associates then pay them more and you won't have as much turn over or employees that just don't care as much. And stop taking away so many of the great perks that used to be available to employees.

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

    Pros

    They do award prizes for closing a lot sales. Have a high close rate and you get bragged on.
    You also get ranked on metrics. Great work schedule. Great pay. And when a new product launches they feed you for the day.

    Cons

    Some of the managers think they are Donald Trump! Firing people left and right for prejudice reasons. They may not "like" you regardless of attendance and performance. Only 5% of the entire staff has blacks in the sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Practice the principles you expect the sales advisors to live by....and stop LYING so much! Fakes. It's about the dollar I'm sure!
