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

Pros

Great people to work with
Working with Apple products all day
allow for great flexibility

Cons

you can ONLY advance if the RIGHT people like you
Some managers were lucky to be in the right place at the right time but they often lack the skills needed to do their job well

Advice to Management

Make sure Managers have at least a bachelors degree because it shows when they are lacking reasoning skills

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

    Pros

    Employee discounts, a great team mentality, the work isn't hard. Lots of attractive young people in one place with a common interest.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers, interpersonal drama a la high school, difficult to succeed. Random imperatives from corporate level employees who have never worked in a retail environment.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Take their advice. Help them succeed and advance. Explain your decisions. Allow people with ambition to aim for management!

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn and enhance customer communications skills, acquire outstanding hardware at a discount, and experience an open, helpful work culture where people can make mistakes and not get 'flogged'. Mistakes are treated as opportunities to learn and improve.

    Cons

    it is still a retail store and thought should be given to how this will work into one;s long-term career plan. The pay is low just as in other retail jobs. Generally, the management team is excellent and works very hard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to emphasize the importance of honest employee feedback.
