I worked at Apple part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The people, the experience, the atmosphere

Cons

The managers, in my opinion, didn't appeal to their employees... their view seemed to conflict with the companies view.

Advice to Management

Please CAREFULLY review your store managers/leaders

    I worked at Apple part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly supportive staff. The management/company seemed to truly care about opportunities for you to improve as an employee and as an individual. Their streamlined approach to "the customer experience" is revolutionary. The store operates like a well oiled machine which made for fun and exciting shifts at work, day after day.

    Cons

    Almost always hires strictly part-time employees with opportunities for advancement to full-time later in the future. Very strict attendance policy. Not for individuals with bad attendance records.


  2. "Challenging work environment."

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

    Pros

    Great benefits package if you're lucky enough to get full-time. There was a very diverse group of people on the team and we felt like a big family.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get full-time in any position within the retail store. In-store management team was virtually powerless; everything from quantity of hours available to promotions/role changes were left in the hands of the market leaders (who didn't really have any idea what was needed). Hours were highly unpredictable, which made it nearly impossible to have a life outside of the store. Very difficult to move within the ranks of the store; they would very often bring in "new hires" from outside the store that would get positions that people who had been working there for years wanted. Very high-stress work environment (particularly at the Genius Bar) and, the pay rate didn't compensate for the demands most of the time. No connection between retail and corporate sides of Apple as far as job movement.

    Advice to Management

    In-store management should have more power and market leaders should have less. Make schedules more predictable. Hire from within the store more often. Increase retail/genius bar employees pay rates to more closely resemble those of corporate employees. For example, Genius Bar employees made, on average, significantly less than AppleCare at-home advisors (which is absurd). Lose Tim Cook.
