    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people.
    Fun, bright and vibrant environments.
    Engaging interactions with customers who love the brand.
    Lots of opportunity to branch out and learn.

    Cons

    Scheduling is chaotic:
    Employees are numerous enough and have varied enough preferences that scheduling could be made basically perfect for everyone. Instead, it is left up to software algorithms which result in random days off and shift times that cause an exhausting effect (Wednesday off, open Thursday, close Friday, Open Saturday, Monday off.. etc)

    An overemphasis on "cultural fit" instead of merit causes a feeling of bias regarding promotions and career growth - a team member who excels in rankings, feedback and performance may find themselves passed over for promotions when a new person with no merit but a plucky attitude gets a position.

    Customer interactions can be intense. This isn't a con if you thrive in this sort of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the brand and where it came from. Remember that staff are there because they are passionate and love Apple. The customer comes first, but team members need to be seen and appreciated more than they are.

    With some effort, Apple retail could be back to the golden early days.

    I worked at Apple part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great morale and team
    Very positive environment
    Incredible benefits (fitness reimbursement, stock options, RRSP, school reimbursement)
    Super flexible schedule

    Basically the best part time job possible for any student

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities within the company
    Going from Retail to Corporate almost never happens
    Feels more like a 'transitional job' (a great one by the way) then a 'career job'

    I was a part timer so for me the company is 5 stars. But if I were looking to stay beyond a part time position my outlook would be different.

    Advice to Management

    Foster employees ability to grow within the company.

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

    Pros

    The staff are awesome. The location is nice. You’ll make friends. They have some pretty good benefits. Apparently this has to be 20 words long.

    Cons

    The customers are the worst. And retail scheduling is a nightmare. They want you to use their own doublethink language and it gets annoying as all get out.
