    Former Employee - Apple Retail Specialist in Waikïkï, HI (US)

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

    Pros

    If you enjoy Apple products and showing people how to use them this job is for you. I worked at the Apple store at the Royal Hawaiian location. Its fun meeting tourist from all over the world. The Staff and co-workers were top notch. Management and co-workers were always there to help out if the store became overwhelm during peak hours of the night.

    Cons

    Sometimes its hard to speak to tourist who aren't native english speakers. It is always best to have Google translate by your side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring of personnel who can speak multiple language would be beneficial in the Hawaiian market.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Training Programs and Opportunities to move up. Work with very smart and creative people from very diverse backgrounds. Great benefits such as health care for part time employees, free software, and product discounts. Above average pay compared to usual retail wages. Not commissioned based.

    Cons

    Very few breaks and long hours standing. Depends on manager working with. Some are very people oriented and some are all about sales metrics. Raises and opportunity to move up depends on sales metrics.

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most creative and influential people. Benefits are excellent for retail, as well as some awesome work perks

    Cons

    Very past paced environment. Not for those that can get stressed out easily. Also not for those who want an environment that constantly stays the same.

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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers and managers, paid training, amazing employee benefits (discounts on Apple Products). Pay is decent. You get to work from home. They are flexible with school schedules in the college program, and will schedule you around your classes. They do contests around Christmas and holidays and give away lots of free stuff. Lots of opportunities to contribute to the program in a meaningful way.

    Cons

    During Holidays you have to work full-time with no chances of time off. Had to work on christmas and christmas eve, new years day and new years eve. Crazy high expectations and compensation is not that great. Almost impossible for upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize people for their achievements and success, not based on their popularity on the team.

    Pros

    Amazing company and great team members. Can't say enough good things about this company. Everything from the equipment it makes to the service it offers employees

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for professional growth working from home but that's the only downfall.

    Pros

    Empowering environment, Cool Technology, Exciting Product Launches, Meaningful Customer Interactions.

    Cons

    Customers are often upset. Most of them are coming in because something isn't working properly. Dealing with unhappy customers can be unpleasant but the training more than compensates for this. You will absolutely know how to handle 90% of those situations.
