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

    Pros

    Genuinely feels like a family, everyone is super interesting & friendly, loved that everyone had so many interests and hobbies outside of Apple which made for great conversation. Obviously you get products discounted and the wage is really good for retail, but you also have to work very long days with very little time off.

    Cons

    Initially it seems like they're not driven by sales and money, but it is a business at the end of the day and I grew to dislike the constant reviewing of how many products I'd sold/how many people I'd encouraged to sign up for phone contracts etc. The holiday booking system is rubbish.

    Advice to Management

    Stay fabulous!

    Make yourself known. Apple has loads of employees it’s hard to differentiate who is apart of management etc
