    Pros

    Apple is job that helps make all of its workers progress and be their best. The managers are super friendly and are willing to take feedback. If you ever have an issue with another worker, you can talk to them directly or let a leader know and the issue is quickly resolved. Apple really cares about its employees and will implement almost anything to make them happy.

    Cons

    Apple is like any retail store in that you have to work retail hours. There are some days that you will work till 9 or 10pm.

    I worked at Apple part-time

    Pros

    Incredible & energetic culture with passionate and extremely competent managers. Starting wage is very decent and benefit package is fantastic. Management is transparent and internal growth is encouraged.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment. If you're not an 'Apple' person, then you will might have a difficult time. Some employees may feel burnt out over time, especially those working full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spent more 1:1 time with your employees.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, not a bad environment for retail. They try to dress it up as a career, and while it's not bad pay, it is a demanding environment.

    Cons

    Demanding pace, long hours, shift work, no weekends off. Little room for growth depending on where you are in the store.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It pays very well... it starts with the salary of $17.50 an hour for the least position offered there which is a specialist, great work environment and comes with a lot of prestige. & there are multiple leaders who are always available for you to approach and discuss anything you want with them

    Cons

    Infront of customers, you work as one supportive team, but at the back of the house; it's a pain in the butt. You have to be very careful what you say, because a word as simple as dumb or stupid can get you called up to the managers office, and every little single thing you do there is put as a note to file, whether it's positive or negative, more negatives though. & there's really very little room for development in Apple, once you're in a position, you're pretty much stuck to it unless you're the manager's b*tch who snitches about other employees and much more, because managers love knowing everything that's going on since there's always a barrier between the normal workers and the managers. All in all I'd rate the company 4/10

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to managers would be pay more attention and don't believe everything what is told to you.
    Advice to PEOPLE WHO WANT TO APPLY/WORK there: Just know that it's gonna be hard, it's a path full of sharp edges, one day you're the best guy ever and the next day you're a signature away from firing, and you can get fired for the silliest things ever, for example, saying the number of people that work here in total or how many stocks of a product are there. I work there now but if any other opportunity opens up for me, i'd definitely run away and my chances of returning to Apple would be very slim.
