    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
