Advice to ManagementAdvice

You already do a great job of involving your staff but provide more training for specialists as far as technical support. A lot of questions or troubleshooting can be handled right on the floor in less than 2 minutes that do not require the long waits for a genius at the bar.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will work with the best people. Everywhere I have traveled with this company, I have found that the people are top quality - no matter if its at headquarters in California or a remote store somewhere. The pay on the retail side is very good for retail, and you get to work with some of the coolest products in the world.

    Cons

    Long hours. Oftentimes, overtime is the norm rather than the exception. You rarely get recognized for dedication and commitment. It sometimes feels as though you should be grateful you were let in the door, because, "This is Apple." Its not often, but it happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your people. Pay is nice, but an email or something even just saying you noticed how hard someone was working, or that you appreciate something they do can go a whole lot further than you think.
