    I have been working at Stormfront Retail full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I wish there were some. The only positive of working here correlates to the experience you gain working with the Apple Brand. Not Stormfront!

    Cons

    Micromanagement is at the heart of the company, where the Regional Managers are the CEO’s golf buddies, and the CEO himself is lost as to why his company is losing its stance in the market. Far from looking after their people they consider paying them a salary a favour, and there is very little internal progression. Many of these positive reviews have been fabricated and show little truth, so be weary of wanting to... work for this company, you are better of applying to Apple directly as these people are a rotten mark on the title APR. Many staff members face harsh investigations and are always at the end of the phone with a person from head office shouting down at them.

    Pros

    Apple Products Great Finance Options for products

    Cons

    Bad Area Managers Company Politics No Respect For Managers at Store Level CEO Treats Employees Like Trash - Shouts and Screams on the phone No Internal Progression Even When They Say There Is No Reward When You Do Well

    Advice to Management

    Change your CEO You need better Area Managers who understand their staff, and more so Area Managers that your people would want to work for. Not just your golf buddies from other companies. Build an internal pipeline and give the opportunities out to people that deserve it. Get everyone in higher management respecting their staff.

    I have been working at Stormfront Retail full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay, Good progression opportunities, Well run company. Management have implemented many of the staffs suggestions including pay incentives and larger hourly contracts.

    Cons

    The job can be complicated in terms of the skills you are required to learn, all staff are required to learn nearly all roles withing the store including repairs on several apple products. The result is very good ultimately however it is more than it may appear upon applying.
