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

Pros

Compensation, benefits, flexible schedules. The culture of the company is outstanding, you are inspired to be the best you can be, and there is growth opportunity. Management drives for high performance, but in a positive way that eliminates unnecessary pressure and encourages collaboration and helping peers. Your colleagues are smart and fun, there is great camaraderie and healthy competition between coworkers. You will master people skills in a short amount of time.

Cons

The technical skills you can acquire from Apple as a retail tech support consultant fell short of my expectations. Erratic, inconsistent retail schedules can be hard to deal with over time. Apple is so successful that the stores are often crowded beyond comfortable levels. The Genius Bar is very stressful due to the huge volumes of traffic you have to handle. Managing upset customers all day long can emotionally wear anyone down, so the job demands high mental fortitude.

    I have been working at Apple part-time

    Pros

    Benefits are great all the way around...from commuting, personal purchases, stock and health insurance. Apple really believes in helping you reach your goals and encourages professional development. Exciting, positive environment to work!

    Cons

    Work - life balance is important to Apple but it becomes a little difficult during holidays and when a new product launches.
