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

    Pros

    It feels like a family! The job can be stressful (but this is purely because of the customers), but your co-workers are always there to support you.
    Lots of perks and great employee discount!

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to what Apple stands for!

    I worked at Apple full-time

    Pros

    • Good discounts
    • Looks really good on CV
    • Inspirational people that work for the company
    • Boosts ego
    • The old credo is a brilliant look into the mind and thoughts of Steve Jobs
    • Amazing induction program

    Cons

    • managers are just that, managers... since the current Store “leader” has been on board it’s gone from leaders that inspire to a glorified EE shop, targets, targets, targets. This is not the middle managers fault, they have the pressure and mentality of a car room sales man manager above them.
    • After induction you are pretty much left to it and at that point just a tick box.
    • very cliche, need to be in the right group, or be able to brown nose like the best. JS...
    • pay is average and no consistency, get told not to talk to others about your pay... and that’s why...
    • fake fulfilment, managers try to buy love and respect with sweets and other childish materials (don’t get me wrong it’s great fun, however not when you know their real intentions)
    • The People manager at this particular store, I think aspires to be detective columbo, which in turn, puts you off wanting to go into 20 meter diameter of her. Not the best attribute for a “people” manager.

    Advice to Management

    The focus has gone from experience to cash, apples success was that they are different, fight back against the normality, fight back against what’s the expected. This made apple an amazing place to go and just spend time. Now it feels 02 in and out as fast as pos. If it wasn’t for the creatives and genius sticking to their experience guns, the managers would have turned it into another supermarket... maybe Sainsbury’s...
