Customer Service - The Apple Store in Ottawa, ON
Fun and Exciting Place to work
Talk about cool products. Meet interesting people. Loved every minute of it.Recently the parking for employee's were paid by Apple. That changed and its up to the employee to pay for parking on a monthly bases. With the location being downtown, parking wasn't cheap.

Excellente école du développement professionnel
Apple est la meilleure école pour apprendre à se connaître et se développer tant au niveau professionnel que personnel. Ce que j’y ai appris me suivra toute ma vie en m’apportant du positif et à voir le bon côté des situation même dans l’adversité.

Great Experience, poor management.
Apple schedules weeks in advance which helps with planning personal time. Depending on if you are part-time or full-time, you would work 16-20 hours minimum for part-time, and 40 hours for full-time per week. You would work on the sales floor helping customer discover Apple products.You can learn a lot about retail environment and how Apple puts itself at the top of the retail field when helping its customers. Unfortunately, the management at the Apple Store is not aligned with the corporate values of the company. They try to align with the culture that is brought forward by corporate, however the management did their own thing. Promotions were handed out based on favouritism and not merit. This was the hardest part of the job. Seeing people who were favourited by management get promotions instead of people who have worked diligently and followed the coaching provided by management but never considered for a promotion.The most enjoyable part about the job is that you're able to meet amazing people in the job and build long lasting relationships with those specific people who have passions out of the store. I think this is the best aspect of working in an Apple Store. You're able to build your network with those people and of course it will help your professional career if staying with Apple is not in the cards.Overall, the company itself is very good and they care for your well being, however the Apple Store management is extremely sub par.

Apple looks for people persons and it shows. No technical experience needed! They can teach that but can’t teach you how to be a good person. They take great care of their people first! Highly recommend
IOS tech support in Laval, QC
I never worked at a company that requires so many steps just to clock in. You're timed on every single thing. I got a written notice once because i was 43 seconds past my 15mins break. The customers are the biggest entitled adult babys i've ever heard (i was a over the phone IOS tech support). All in all, if you like it, good for you, but i, just like many others who quitted before me, despised it.
