I have been working at Apple

Pros

The people you work with at the retail level are pretty amazing.

Cons

Even though its a good work environment it's still retail at the end of the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Apple's retail arm can sometimes feel like a dead end job. Find away to keep the excitement about working for this company alive as you go forward. Sometimes I feel a little disposable.

    Great at first, then you learn about how little leeway you are given.

    I have been working at Apple

    Pros

    Work at home, discounts to Apple and other places, knowledge of new products, being able to say you work for them, very thorough training.

    Cons

    Little understanding when sick or need to take a personal day - will fire you without question in you go over 3 missed days. Unforgiving about technical issues and will make you pay for them to be fixed. Not flexible with schedule -- will have you work at inconvenient times. Very high expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more lenient with sick days! Offer more training when needed. Pay for necessities like "ergonomic" chair (couple hundred dollars that is required) and cover technical costs for messed up phone lines. Also, give phone/internet reimbursements on time.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    If you have to work retail, I'd highly recommend Apple Retail over the drone services at other electronics stores and other retail outlets...just not as much excitement or that type of personality.

    Cons

    A lot of internal struggle to be a standout employee, a lot of internal competition.
    A lot of mindless leadership for very minuscule tasks that really have no worth for the overall team or store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career advancement and upward mobility
