    I worked at Apple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pays you better than any other retail job.

    Got to pretend I worked for a tech company and had a real job even though I just problem solved basic user issues.

    No pressure to sell.

    Very good hiring practises, I liked all of my coworkers.

    You get benefits even when part-time.

    You work for a company that generally has very good practises in terms of privacy.

    Lots of retention. So many coworkers were 5+ years with Apple retail.

    High accountability for workers and management.

    Cons

    You work in a mall or plaza.

    You ultimately work retail and therefore have to deal with retail hours and customer entitlement.

    Management talk about work/life balance but you never really get a proper weekend. Usually one day off some more work days an then another day off.

    You work for Apple Retail not Apple Corporate. There is a giant divide. Less benefits. Less involvement. Less pride.

    It feels like it would take a miracle to ever transfer to Corporate even if you had relevant skills.

    Pretty extreme expectations in terms of Work Reviews. Very very good workers did not seem to get rewarded for their behaviour due to arbitrary and unrealistic customer-review expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up hiring real nice people. It was always a pleasure to see coworkers.

    Continue to value loyalty.

    Be more transparent about what the expectations truly are and be more understanding of how fickle customers are.
