It was a fun environment to work in and everyone is very friendly. The job itself was interesting and it was nice helping people. A lot is expected for little pay and no commission.

Great place to work for!
Apple Expert (Current Employee) –  Mechanicsburg, PANovember 16, 2016
Been with the company for almost 4 years in March. Originally when I was hired I was groomed to be a supervisor within a year. 3 years later I'm in a better store with a sales leader role, but still wanting to move up.

Best part of the job is helping customers with their needs and helping them achieve greatness with their products in both business and personal life uses.
Pros
Flexibility in shifts
Cons
Long time to move up unless in the right store

Retail position
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Saratoga, NYNovember 15, 2016
Normal retail position with chance for advancement if you push hard enough. The management is helpful if a little hung up in bureaucracy. Some times sales tactics are put second to paperwork.

Great place to work at
Loss Prevention Agent (Former Employee) –  Carolina, PRNovember 14, 2016
Typical day at work, I'd arrive and post myself at my area of employment and begin to review the current situation at work, with employees to make sure everything was running smoothly.

Hardest part of my job was making sure the clients were not stealing for the establishment.
