Inventory Specialist (Supervisor) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 November 2017
The atmosphere and culture of working at an Apple Store was great even though it was hard work. Like all retail jobs it could be hard to maintain a good work life balance sometimes. Also the managers in stores could vary significantly in terms of how well they did they jobs and worked with employees. Very little opportunities to move before working in retail store.
Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 February 2017
The company has a strong vision. It is very rewarding to work for a company that really thrives to make positive impacts on the way we live. Leadership has a very important responsibility to spread their words and help the big team, envision the future with Apple and empower each and every one of team members to maximise their talents to make this vision true. It requires a hard work to keep up in the company. Great place to learn leadership skills.

It's not a difficult job, however, hard work does not pay off. Everything is a personality contest. If you rub one manager the wrong way, you will never get any opportunities for growth. If you aren't their perfect little Apple boy/girl, forget about getting full time hours or changing roles.
Genius (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 6 February 2017
The Job itself is great, there are not enough stores/employees to help the number of customers that need assistance so you are expected to help a certain number of customers per hour or helping 2 or 3 people at a time. This makes for a poor experience a lot of customers. Management only cares about numbers despite what you are meant to believe. Helping the customers can be very rewarding as in a lot of cases they are not the strongest with technology. Repairing computers and phones can also be more about how many can you get done an hour which can lead to mistakes and longer wait times.

Apple's mission statement and public initiatives are felt internally within the company everyday. Privacy, environmental friendliness, gender equality, inclusivity, diversity are not just marketing buzz words but something the company strives to achieve everyday in the way it treats its customers and employees.
Working at the Genius Bar, my typical day involves taking appointments to diagnose and resolve issues our customers may be facing with their Apple products and services.
The most challenging part of working in an Apple Store would have to be adjusting to the high traffic environment and being able to give a consistent customer experience to each and every customer that walks into the store.
Apple Certified Mac Technician (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 January 2017
- work/life balance needs improvement (set/preferred schedules) - excellent place to push the limits of what you think are possible for yourself - management at the retail level would benefit from internal promotions, rather than external hires (internals truly understand Apple 'culture') - great place to meet talented and intelligent folk with passions in music, photography, videography, entrepreneurial endeavors
Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 October 2016
Fast paced and energetic atmosphere. Very diverse range of tasks to complete. My favorite part of the job is being able to discuss and interact with technology everyday with like minded people. Very strong leadership team and excellent co-workers.
