Great place to work, but hiring staff is difficult to deal with.

I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

Pros

Everybody that works there is helpful, has a good attitude, and are generally great people to work with. Being a positive, outgoing person is required to even get anywhere in the hiring process.

Cons

They didn't respect my schedule as a student. They assigned me to a location that was at least a 30 min commute, when I could see one of their other stores from my apartment window.

They also had A LOT of mandatory meetings that were mostly filled with unnecessary "break the ice" type of activities, and patting high-performing employees on the back. Team building and employee recognition are important, but these meetings got to be way past the point of wasting my time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a lot of good employees who love to do good work for you, but when you disrespect their time

    I worked at Apple part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can be fun somewhat, but don't expect a warm fuzzy "welcome to the family" approach after your 2nd month. It's ok in the beginning, but the claws come out around the 3rd month.

    Cons

    Staff is mean spirited & VERY clickish. If they don't like you, the co-workers will make it difficult for you on a daily basis. Hours are also very UNFLEXIBLE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to move up the ladder & out & take care of your people.
