    I worked at Apple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Product discounts for friends and family.
    Good outreach programs.

    Cons

    Way too many politics.
    Terrible upper management.
    Can be a very toxic environment, customers and staff.
    Favouritism is very clear.
    A lot of scandals take place amongst management, that they simply sweep under the rug.
    Drug testing is highly recommended!!!! So many staff Including management do drugs. It’s a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those that can deliver.
    Promote those that actually plan to be with the company for a long time and that genuinely care about their team mates.
    Do drug tests!!!!! Across the whole store.
    Don’t dangle carrots.
    Stop the gossip!!!!
    Given everyone a chance.
    Get rid of managers that just aren’t the right fit. You know who I’m taking about.
