    Pros

    Good work-life balance, lots of opportunity for personal growth here especially if you're a part-time student, good pay for part time, excellent training

    Cons

    Your experience can be at the whim of your management. Stores have many managers with varying management styles. It can get inconsistent and your achievement reviews may be mixed. Too many males being hired.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who work well as a team and can create a cohesive culture. In my experience the managers had unique personalities, strengths and weaknesses but it didn't work in a "diversity is better" kind of way; it created disconnect among the store.

  2. Apple should ensure it's Promoters are treated better by it's contact Centers!

    Pros

    It's a job, ya it's different here!

    Cons

    poverty line wages, they have cut the little benefits we had to the bone! It is impossible for anyone to keep up with the stats that they change at a whim.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be a human and maybe get some training from Richard Branson.

    Pros

    You'll meet fantastic people with creative energy and fair compensation.

    Cons

    Learn to pat yourself on back as Leaders will often overlook your good work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate every employees hard work, and not just the ones who propel you towards a bonus. We didn't come here for that. We came for a different experience. Challenge. Be unique and innovate with the rest of the company.

    Pros

    I enjoy the freedom and flexibility of the culture at Apple. If there is a problem, peers are encouraged to provide feedback directly, enabling one to have an impact on the inner-workings of their store.

    Cons

    Personal development is expected, but not as supported as one would hope. There are a lot… a ton of resources but time is not one that is afforded without a fight. Some individuals act as the boss even if they are peers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with your people. Let them know what's next, what steps to take and how to achieve growth. Grumpy or "challenging" employees should have repercussions and not just be allowed to work through their team-affecting issues at their own pace. One bad egg begets many.

  8. A great experience that you will carry with you for the rest of our life.

    Pros

    They pay well and schedule around school very well. Every day is eventful and they do a good job of picking well-rounded employees. Great employee benefits and discounts.

    Cons

    It CAN be cult-like and some people are closed minded against non-Apple fanatics. It gets VERY busy and hectic- which can be expected with any retail job- and sometimes it's easy to feel overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and consistency are key. When one manager says something, I expect that other managers are also on board and follow the same policies. If we're making an exception for one person, it shouldn't become the 2nd rule. An exception is an exception and if there are too many, the rule gets lost.

    Pros

    Amazing company to work for as they provide great benefits, training, and compensation. Also provide education reimbursement, which is a huge plus for students who is also working full time

    Cons

    Growth opportunity is generally limited to the retail division of the company. If you are passionate about retail, then this can be a "pro".
