Great place to work if you have a whole lot of energy
Mac Genius (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – February 28, 2016
I loved working at Apple, but at the end of the day you will be often reminded that you work Apple's retail arm, and sometimes that can make you feel unappreciated and unimportant. You will feel like a battering ram trying to protect your favorite company from time to time, but you will learn so much about technology, people, and communication from working there. Public speaking, troubleshooting, problem solving, and leadership are some of the other skills I picked up or strengthened while working here, and the benefits and discounts are great. Apple also has a knack for hiring some of the coolest, most interesting, and passionate people you'll ever meet, so more likely than not, you'll be developing a second family if you decide to work there, which was one of my favorite parts of the job.
Benefits, experience, challenge, co-workers
Ambiguity, super fast-paced, at times overwhelming
