    Exhilarating and rewarding to work for an organization that focus's on the employees and the customers needs.

    Apple Retail Specialist (Former Employee) Paramus, NJ (US)

    ProsTeam environment. Everyone, no matter what level helps out with customers. Management is very employee friendly.

    ConsSometimes, not often, short of staff. This puts pressure on the rest of the employees to multitask. Very difficult when the store is crowded with customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep producing the best products in the world and keep focusing on developing the staff that you have.

    Specialist

    Apple Family Room Specialist (Former Employee) Santa Monica, CA (US)

    Pros-Very flexible with shifts. You can work days off and days on (as long as you can switch with someone).
    - It's a very laid back job, as long as you do your job, there really isn't anything to worry about.

    Cons-You have to be on top of your sales, especially on selling Apple Care and taking care of business sales.
    -Dealing with a few customers daily, but that's given when working anywhere in retail.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work looking after the new one's. Without the help from management, advancing up the chain wouldn't be easy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
