I worked at Apple as an intern (More than 3 years)

Pros

Full ownership of work, was not treated like an intern but like a full-time employee, great intern events

Cons

You are very specialized in your role at Apple, which tends to hire "experts" in any field when there's demand

    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.

    I have been working at Apple part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top-tier tech company, very influential work even in retail stores. Store management allows for employee input every quarter and genuinely tries to act on it. Amazing benefits and day-to-day work. I like coming to work every day even if it means a challenge. Its so much more than just selling electronics. Despite being retail, you have the capability of controlling interactions that get out of hand. "The customer is always right" doesn't fly here, so you get to feel confident about your job. Management will back you up if you have a legitimate good idea or concern, and do a fair job of connecting with everyone even with a team of 200 people. An apple store is not just a store - its a hub of great thinkers, problem solvers, and engaged workers.

    Cons

    Management can be disorganized from store to store depending on leaders.

    Difficult work/life balance - Hard to take time off (especially during holidays) due to high demand, availability requirements for part-timers are still restrictive.

    Clientele knowledge and attitudes vary by location and you are expected to act your best no matter the circumstances. Do not consider working here if you're not a self-starter or enthusiastic hard worker. Still, It is the most difficult, yet rewarding, job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate retail management - Take input from lower employees from multiple stores when coming up with new ideas.

    General management - Promote from within when filling leadership positions.
