Does Apple offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Apple Retail gives you the ability to pursue or experience many different jobs and roles. Also, if you're willing to move, you can get a job in any county that has a retail location. Great "family" aspect where you can make life-long friends. Apple Retail is a great starter job to fine tune certain competencies and areas of your personal and professional life. Easy work environment with a large support system.

Cons

Retail work environment, which results in dealing with the public in a large capacity. Intense feeling of being treated like a child. No relocation packages for retail employees who wish to transfer. High level of internal politics. A "blanket pay scale" that doesn't take into account the specific duties and responsibilities of each job title or employee. No work-from-home benefits or free lunches. No annual bonus for retail employees and a non-commission based salary. Lack of incentives to maintain a high level of performance. Cult-like work environment - constant need to "drink the cool-aid." Specific roles within retail do not transfer well to other industries.

Advice to Management

Management has been overall good. They typically leave you be when they feel that you're confident in your role. My advice would is: be more proactive in getting to know your employees on a one-to-one basis. Proactively plan for their present and future at Apple or beyond.

No relocation packages for retail employees who wish to transfer.

Does Apple offer massages?

Pros

Amazing, smart, ultra driven people every place you look. A sea of brilliance where the magic happens. Everyone here is hungry and wants to do great work. We all have our common mission and do what we can to accomplish that. The campus is beautiful and we are fortunate to have shuttles and busses with getting us from one building to another in addition to serving us during commute times. A few local gyms with membership that is more than affordable! We have a few medical centers for Apple employees. There is an optometry, dentist, acupuncturist and massage therapists. Apple is thoughtful about the benefits and continues to evaluate them every year to make sure that the employees are taken care of. Very very very generous with the RSUs and refreshers. I hear about numerous companies in the valley and see a big difference.

Cons

Not enough vacation time, unfortunately. :-(

Advice to Management

Tim- you are an inspiring and phenomenal leader! I'm personally thankful for the opportunities that has been granted to me here.

Does Apple offer dental insurance?

Pros

From flex medical, para medical and dental to life insurance, RRSP and shares, discounts, th benefits are great.

Cons

The company has changed a lot since Steve Jobs died. Been in the company over 10 years and I feel we are now working for the sole purpose of delighting the shareholders.

Does Apple offer parental leave?

Pros

You get to learn about fairly cutting-edge technology at a rapid pace. You’re paid better than other retail jobs. The benefits package is really good-low deductible, excellent maternity and paternity leave, many benefits I haven’t seen elsewhere.

Cons

Angry people who don’t know enough about technology to google their problem to troubleshoot or buy their product that they could’ve easily purchased online (with free shipping) come here as a last resort and are overwhelmed by the experience instead of being surprised and delighted. It is difficult to move up. You are graded on your empathy by your customers. Goodbye nights, weekends, and holidays forever. Lack of management-level diversity.

Advice to Management

If the management team is so similar that they actually wear the same shirts, you know you’re not promoting diversity at a meaningful level. Little regard for people from different backgrounds. (Non-religious, single parents, poor people.)
