    I have been working at Apple part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits awarded even to part time employees. Flexibility with schedule as long as you plan in advance. Many options for movement internally or to a different location.

    Cons

    Exhausting customer service work for customers that often feel entitled and not very grateful. High turnover makes it hard to forge relationships and means that the team is always relatively new/inexperienced.

    Pros

    The leadership is supportive and your coworkers are awesome. everything is about teamwork, and they will work to make your work/life balance as easy and pleasant as possible.

    Cons

    it takes a long time to become full time. most people are part time workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay. compared to other companies in the cell phone market the pay is a little low due to there being no commission. Some people do over a million dollars in sales in a year. with all the profits apple makes it could afford to make more people full time and raise the pay.

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, good benefits, decent pay. The 401k and stock options don't hurt either.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be an issue. Working in retail you don't get a typical weekend off like other people do.
