All employees are over-qualified and stuck working there, due to Apple's hiring process based on personality.

I have been working at Apple

Pros

It is a prestigious place to work because the best personalities are hired on.

Cons

Retail hierarchy, the corporation holding a carrot in front of your nose incessantly. Laughable wages, and even more bitingly hilarious system for raises.(not based on individual performance and is only once a year. Best wage increase being $.50-$.75 to hope for.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is actually impossible to be promoted to management as a Specialist because all the hiring is done based on personality. Managers have entirely different personalites as Specialists, so a Specialist could never aspire towards it; one cannot change their own personallity.

    I worked at Apple

    Pros

    Apple is the leader in creating innovative and unrivaled products that keep you coming back for more. Great place for long-lasting electronic devices.

    Cons

    Company-wide, Apple continues to provide low pay for the environment that you work in. There are promises of advancement, but this almost never happens. If, in the instance it does, expect to do more for the same pay as you had in your previous position. Putting up with irate customers all day requires more pay - sorry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bottom line is to make profit. In your credo, it is highlighted entirely about the customer experience, and one line is dedicated to the employees that provide this experience. Remember that line about the employee. It always seems to be forgotten. Value them; they work very hard.
