Specialist (Former Employee), TexasMarch 25, 2015
This company cares about its people. Technology can be taught to anyone but it takes a special person to be about to embrace the innovative work and share it with others who are not familiar with technology.

Fast Paced and never a dull moment.
CREATIVE / TRAINER (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GeorgiaMarch 24, 2015
A typical day at Apple for me was teaching up to 20 people on how to us the various applications on the mac. I learned a lot about customer service tailored for different people and personalities. I worked closely with the management staff, developed a solid relationship with them and have earned their trust to put the company's mission statements and vision at the helm of my performance. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the occasionally difficult person or people who chose to be unreasonable. The most enjoyable part is working with the fellow employees and solving problems for customers. For example, I remember this lady who's mother had recently died. She had only her mother's voice on a few last voice messages. The lady wanted to archive those messages for ever but was afraid that because they were on voice mail they would easily be deleted. I helped her record those voice mails from her mother to her computer using native audio production application. I could tell she was eternally grateful. That made my day and hers, I'm sure.(tears)

A constant learning environment with exceptional peers to learn from.
Back of House Inventory Specialist (Current Employee), Emeryville, CAMarch 22, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: ambiguity
Apple Inc. is a fantastic organization to work with. A typical day includes multiple opportunities to reflect and provide feedback amongst management and peers. Customers are truly grateful for the help they get and are always eager to learn more, which pushes you to constantly search deeper for answers to the many situations you may encounter. The coworkers are extremely supportive of each other and constantly strive to make each other the best specialist we can be. The most difficult part of the job is the ambiguity, and not knowing exactly what is coming next, but for obvious reasons. The most enjoyable part of the job is the networking possibilities and sharing the collective knowledge amongst so many talented individuals all working towards a common goal.

Mac Sales Expert (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 21, 2015
Where to begin with Apple. Great place to work. Loved my team that i worked on and the Aussies and Kiwi's I talked to every day about Apple Products.

I left because they simply didn't pay enough so I took an opportunity at a start up. I left on great terms and would recommend that anyone give it a shot offered employment.

Apple retail provides many unique challenges for those passionate about the brand
FAMILY ROOM SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Century City, CAMarch 20, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: the scheduling is random
My current employer is Apple and my role is Family Room Specialist. I work in tandem with the Genius Bar to troubleshoot iOS devices, (iPhones, IPads, IPods, Apple TV's and the forthcoming Apple Watch). The Job is constantly changing due to the ever-evolving technology. My goal is always to provide the best solution in the fastest way possible that leaves the customer happy with their experience at the store.

I've learned so much. I've learned how these devices work, both software and hardware. I've learned that you always want to explain things as simply as possible. Also, sometimes you need to find a new way of explaining a concept because not everybody learns the in the same way.

I think the company is well managed. There's a reason why we're the no. 1 company in the world.

I love my co-workers. We're a very diverse group of people, all with unique passions and gifts. I've made friends with quite a few of my colleagues and we all make an effort to support each other outside of work.

The hardest part of the job is the scheduling. We don't work regularly scheduled shifts. We may work a morning shift one day, an afternoon shift the following day and a closing shift the day after that. Because of the way our schedules are made, it makes it very difficult to have a routine outside of work.

The most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with the customer and making sure they leave happy and satisfied with the service that I have provided.

Low pay, fast paced, great benefits, high product knowledge, high stress job
Specialist (Current Employee), CAMarch 19, 2015
Pros: great healthcare, discounts with cell and network providers
Cons: extremely low pay, offers lateral mobility, all workers compensated same despite education level
A successful IT company needs to evolve quickly and respond to customer and employee feedback and this is exactly what Apple has succeeded in doing. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with high customer expectations with low pay. Changes are frequent and with little time to read and update, emails are overwhelming. Expectations for retail employees are equal to corporate, however with retail employees serving customers throughout the day the expectations are not equitable. All employees no matter what education level or age are all treated the same. This model creates equity as well as a lack of respect for experienced workers with years of life experience. Healthcare benefits are excellent as well as discounts from network providers. Feedback needs more training and is a crucial part of the work culture. Customer feedback is at times not related to job performance but extraneous circumstances, yet critical to upward mobility. Recognition given to workers on number basis only.

Productive workplace with truly engaging and committed employees
Service Specialist (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 17, 2015
Pros: benefits for part-timers
A typical day at 5th Avenue Apple is exciting, engaging, genuine and fast-paced. I learned that learning on the job with the help of co-workers is the key. I learned that working for the company is not about selling products but rather about learning from the visitors to the store. Listening to them, hearing their stories, learning about their lives and helping them enrich certain aspects with Apple technology. Management was truly wonderful, the best I've experienced in my working years. I never felt lost or confused because everywhere I turned, I saw a smiling manager ready to help at a moment's notice. My co-workers were energetic, heartfelt and genuinely happy to be at work. We all fed off of each other's energy and the energy of the bustling store to create a truly magnetic work atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was communicating effectively with visitors to the store who spoke not a word of English. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a customer out, no matter how much time it required, and seeing them leave so thankful with a smiling face. There's nothing more satisfying than having customers ask for your business card because they only want to work with you when they return to the store.
