    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dynamic, fast paced environments, excellent training and development, excellent benefits package including private health care, dental and eye care, team focused environment, customer focused company, diverse workforce, excellent salary compensation, company pension, stock investment options, forward thinking company with it's staff welfare at it's core.

    Cons

    Shift patterns can be difficult depending on the opening hours of the store, whilst development is good, opportunities for other roles are few and far between with heavy competition, teams in larger/flag stores exceed the 200 mark which can make communication and networking difficult, striking a work life balance can be challenging,

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Manager 
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Products sell - sounds simplistic but for anyone who has worked in an environment where sales forecasts are unrealistic and the product development is static this makes for a challenging sales management environment. Fortunately, this is not the case at Apple. Goals are ambitious but achievable thanks to product quality, focus on user privacy and support/troubleshoots available to resolve occasional system downtimes. Great culture and benefits - benefits outside of your salary are great! People hired aren’t just intelligent but also personable!

    Cons

    Work/ Life balance - retail stores follow standard retail shift work so no guarantee of weekends off and public holidays. Although you can make requests which are usually supported unless it’s a busy period. Monotony - the work can seem at times monotonous and not intellectually stimulating. Apple make their own softwares and tweak processes throughout the year based on customer and employee feedback but not drastically so sometimes it can feel like groundhog day.
