    Pros

    Great atmosphere. You will work with some of the most creative individuals on the planet. Time-off is easy to come by during the off peak season.

    Cons

    In contrast to the intellectual people, you will also work with some absolutely incompetent employees as well. Management is given key words to use when communicating with employees in a positive or negative manner.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    So many benefits. Parking, transportation, stock options, and now health.

    Cons

    demanding customers that are eroding the companies core values little by little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire outside people to be managers that come from Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, because they start using their selling "tactics" on customers that come to apple.

    I have been working at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Apple has a great culture and the people that are selected to work there are just great people. You feel like you are doing great things while you are there. The customer experience can be enjoyable and it is a great place to start a career, very solid foundation.

    Cons

    Low income for the type of work you are doing and the expectation on service and quality. No Career progression unless you work the politics, has nothing to do with skill or your work. Management are not trained in your role so you are managed by someone who doesn't understand what you are doing. If you are full time, you must give 7 days availability, no exceptions. External applicants for management are always considered before internal applicants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn and experience what the people you are managing are experiencing. Do their job for a month.

    I worked at Apple part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked for Apple part time during college and made a lot of friends, connections, and eventually moved on to a full-time job somewhere else since there was not any full-time available.

    Cons

    You work retail hours, but you are busy constantly in the crowded environment so the time can go pretty quickly.
