I worked at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

• Great Benefits
• Get to work with some of the greatest minds in the industry
• Work with purpose
• Unveil new technology and educate customers on how it can improve their lives

Cons

• Upper management is close minded
• Employees are under valued
• Company is one sided when reporting misconduct from Management (sides with management)
• Doesn't matter how long you've worked there; everyone's expendable
• Long hours

Advice to Management

Value your employees more and listen to them more. Happy employees = happy customers. And stop hiring the rejects from Gateway, BestBuy & CompUSA; those business' clearly didn't work out for very long. Don't infect yourselves with inferiority.

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

    Pros

    You get an Apple product discount, healthcare, dental, and vision.

    Cons

    You will have to resolve customer issues in 10 minutes or less. You are also require to sale Applecare Protection Plan's and Service Agreements to Out of Warranty customers. Zero Work-Life Balance, Hectic Schedule, High turnover rate due to people accepting terrible pay. Your work schedule can change the very next morning without warning. Working for Apple isn't what it seems, toxic competitive corporate environment. The pay for new hires gets worse and worse due to the fact that people believe Apple is a dream employer.

    Advice to Management

    Tear down the Ivory Tower. Start promoting based on competency, work ethic, and ability to fulfill qualifications and not on who brown-noses the best. Quit piling responsibilities on advisors that have to deal with hectic customers every day. Allow your employee's to have full weekends off at least once per month.
