One of the Best Jobs I have ever Had

AppleCare At-Home Technician (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I have been working at Apple part-time for more than a year

ProsThere are so many benefits that come with this Job. Never have I had a job that provided so much for me. As a college At-Home advisor I was given flexible hours and full benefits when I worked only 20 Hours a week.

ConsThe job is very demanding. The metrics that you have to meet are very competitive. During holidays there is a high demand for overtime

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A phenomenal company to get to work for.

Sales Specialist (Former Employee)

I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

ProsThe benefits of working for this company were the benefits offered for both part-time and full time associates as well as competitive compensation for retail.

ConsAt times I felt like others that were putting in less work and effort than myself were moving up and I think that its important to ensure that people are going to be hard workers prior to being promoted.

Great experience, long term potential very limited.

Scheduling Coordinator (Former Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

I worked at Apple full-time for more than a year

ProsYou learn the business and customer service approach from one of the most successful companies of all time. They really focus on education and building interpersonal skills plus the technical skills.

ConsITS RETAIL. If you want to be in retail long term then its a great place to work and grow. Only a select few actually make it to corporate.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork-life balance was a real challenge. The job just absorbs you. Take a better look at growth paths outside the standard positions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
