    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of new technology, fairly easy to navigate, and not a lot of bureaucracy in a lot of ways. Good pay, good benefits. Lots of fun, smart people there.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to grow, at least within retail. Hours are less then fantastic, and highly stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember, your people are your soul. And there's a reason policies exist.

    I worked at Apple full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of fresh talent in these stores. I learned so much within the course of three years. Made a lot of friends for life in this company. They love to promote from within.

    Cons

    management is usually not experienced in computers, you will be micro-managed, drink the cool-aid or be shunned. Don't be even 5 minutes late or you will be on your way out in no time. Once your a Genius or a manager you've hit the ceiling and corporate does not seek to hire retail employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing. Most of your employees may look and act young but are a great source to team up with. You burn them and they will make your life hell.
