    I worked at Apple part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great foundation and launch pad - ideal for those very early on in their careers.

    Cons

    Too much favouritism and those who have been there a long tome are either promoted quickly or never get promoted at all. Pay is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the talent, not the people and their popularity. You’re often known by the fort team you follow or how many beers you can down.

    I worked at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good health benefits Discount of products Yearly review with pay rise Discounted shares

    Cons

    Some managers are not leaders, more of a boss Environment of working in a shopping centre is not healthy, loud and closed in No work/life balance or family time Customer rating system expects 100 percent, which is why so many employees are burnt out

    Advice to Management

    Seek to understand employees former background To some of the management, lead, don't boss or micro manage Full-time employees should have at least Saturday or Sunday off Full-time employees should get two days off

    I worked at Apple part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really friendly team Super helpful managers (except for one) Got plenty of shifts

    Cons

    Some managers weren't as understanding as others Launch days can get hectic (but rostering is done well) Due to the diversity of the team the culture is a little bit over the top politically correct with managers, but that was a small gripe of mine.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge talent and have clearer career pathways.

    I have been working at Apple full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good salary (after some promotions and negotiation) - Incredible Team Mates. Honestly, best people you’ll meet, friends for life - Cool benefits and investment schemes. - Quite flexible with schedule changes and holidays

    Cons

    - Progression can be extremely slow. Retention is generally good for people in higher roles as the salary is good. With a limited number of roles, and people staying in those roles, it can take time to grow. - They use the culture to take advantage of you. Those most passionate about Apple are the ones left on lower salaries and in lower positions - even those they’re often working hardest. Apple know you love... the culture, so they know you’ll keep putting in your all and not ask for more

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you believe your people are your soul. People cannot live their life on passion alone - they need career development and money
