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

Pros

The pay is ok and the benefits are good. If you like Apple products they have a good employee discount, which you can also use for friends.

Cons

The people there are the worst. They're completely full of a crusader Apple spirit that says Apple is the best and if you don't agree you're wrong and not very smart. They're VERY exclusive. It's one thing to be proud of your company but another to be derogatory to people who have different tastes. The phone policies are terrible. Customers have to pay for phone support past a complimentary period, and if they're past that you can't help them with anything, even very minor stuff.

Advice to Management

Improve training. It's horrible.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of room to move around, but like one of managers once told me, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Things vary greatly from store to store, and I've had the benefit of working with caring, creative, gifted people.

    Cons

    "Ambiguity," as they call it. Constantly inundated with peoples troubles every time their iPhone does something unexpected. Not knowing what you'll be doing on any given day until seconds before you clock in. You're telling people bad news. Not all of them are going to take it so well.

    Advice to Management

    To some, talk less and listen more. To all, observe, observe, observe. Then act on those observations.
