Good for a temporary job while you work on your career.
Concierge/Specialist (Former Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 7, 2012
Pros: good pay, good coworkers
Cons: long hours, lots of customers, stress, people yelling at you
Apple isn't for everyone. It's a stressful job, with terrible management. But it pays well, and the co-workers were amazing. I met some of my favourite people in the world while working there.

In a week, we would see over 50,000 people come through the doors. All of whom were looking for something different. You had to remain calm, and remember everything – more... about all the staff members and their knowledge, while remembering the information of the product.

Plus, the job was always changing. And the products were always changing. You would have to take the initiative to learn something new every day. – less

A great technology company for people of various walks of life
Genius / In-house (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCOctober 21, 2012
Pros: plenty of catered food, great benefits, challenging, high pace environment
Cons: exhaustive hours, poor advancement opportunities, management and job goals can be unrealistic at times
A great company to work for. You meet many people in the job from all over the world, get to meet the occasional celebrity, and challenge yourself continually. The company will encourage and assist where possible for personal growth in the company, but for those wishing to go beyond retail, there is little opportunity within Canada for this.

Pros: stock plan
I loved Apple and it always was a fun gig, especially during launch days and overnights, my co-workers will forever be good friends of mine, the hardest part was demanding people and supply and demand, other than that it was a high demand sales gig, that taught me skills I will keep forever.

Sr Recruiter (Current Employee), Cupertino, CAOctober 19, 2014
Pros: discounts on apple hw
Cons: vacation is below industry avg
Many managers are too busy to develop team and feedback/direction is sometimes sparse. This results in some rather uneven promotion of individuals with an emphasis on hrs worked over innovation/creativity.

Retailer focused on the customer as much as their employees..most of the time.
Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 18, 2014
Pros: benefits most employers don't offer
Cons: revenues feel more important than employees sanity sometimes.
As any retail job it has its highs and lows.

Opportunities exist if you really like the technology.

Management is hit or miss. Some really like the company and making employees happy. Others blame problems on other people and feel like its their job to find a scapegoat instead of learning from experiences.

Co-workers are usually easy to become friends – more... with. Their are a lot of call offs though.

Your really busy and then your not. People have a hard time with stress when its busy and others don't know how to deal with downtime when its not.

Consistent raises and benefits no other employer has. – less

Got To Love Large Companies
Genius Administrator (Former Employee), Tysons Corner, VAOctober 17, 2014
There was not a "typical day" at this job.

I learned how to communicate to others very well in many different ways.

Management was helpful and caring.

Coworkers were very enthusiastic.

Hardest part of the job was telling customers about their computer issues.

Most enjoyable part of the job was helping people.

Apple likes to make the working environment as positive and fun as possible. They succeed in that in many ways.
they also offer ways to grow and shape your work into a more personal form. I especially enjoyed doing that while working as a workshop teacher.

Pros: casual enivonment
Cons: favoritism for promotions skewed younger, time off for s special event like sxsw is like pulling teeth, musicians and filmmakers shouldn't apply
Everyone's excited about their indoctrination. People tend to be most successful by knowing who to make friends with, when to work far overtime, and especially do well if they have a limited worldview that doesn't go that far outside of Apple's walls. Management is mostly outside hires from other call centers where an emphasis is mostly on when gets – more... their to start warming the chair and how much time they stay in the chair. They say they're open to change, but when it comes from lower level employees, it's ignored then often taken by someone higher above who gets the credit. Apple is great if you're salaried and thus, can have a schedule that offers a good work life balance in case you have hobbies that are time involving, if you're a parent, or if you're simply young and wet behind the years, willing to work up to 12 hours a day because the pay is good and hit the nearest Suburban bar and spend the whole time drinking too much and playing video games. They have a great Caffe, but if you're in the call center, never-ending metrics demand often dictates you might never go. There's a great health center and classes. Guess what? Call center employees are out. That strict schedule adherance – less

I was asked to come back, and I said ''No".

Management is a job, and they treat you like you mean nothing to them or the company.
