Pros

Very exciting products and a bright future.

Cons

Most employees are treated as replaceable parts.

Advice to Management

Employees want to have ownership but middle management is so busy managing up they don't allow workers the freedom to do their jobs proactively. Managers just don't trust their staff to make them look good to senior management... that's really your primary task.

    Pros

    Working with customers and helping them take home Apple products is truly a rewarding experience. The majority of customers are friendly and excited about being in the store and learning about the products, which makes the job a lot of fun. Coworkers are also a major pro, as they are diverse, supportive, friendly, helpful and fun.

    Cons

    Management is obsessed with service attachment rates. Despite Apple Corporate's belief in providing exceptional service, store managers are willing to sacrifice the customers by promoting aggressive selling techniques and will even punish compassionate specialists. If you want to work in an Apple retail store, be prepared for an intense sales environment where your are constantly pushed and bullied into achieving better sales numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Think of the customers and employees before your numbers, because people are the heart of Apple, not service attachment rates.
