The team are incredible the work is less so.
Specialist (Former Employee) – Oxford Circus – 20 March 2019
During my time working at apple, i built literally life long connections. All that stuff they say about great teamwork and all these people you will meet and work with is actually the best bit about working there. The work is alright, basic sales stuff really but slightly glorified because apple believe that they are the best company in the world. The management team leaves much to be desired in some areas. Although some of the managers there are great, there are several that are totally biased, blind sided and in some cases even racist. Which i know is shocking in a company that seems to promote how greatly diverse the team is. The team is diverse dont get me wrong, but there are definite under the rug issues that everyone feels, and only some people are trying to change.
You get an hour's lunch break usually around 4 hours into your shift (depending on the length of the shift) and they teach you all the tech stuff that you need to know, so dont worry if you dont know everything or anything before you start, they are just looking for outgoing and great personalities to add to the team. Hardest part of the job is probably the weeks leading up to when the new phones come out and you just get constantly bombarded with questions about what it will be and what is will look like when in reality the staff only find out on the exact same day as the customers.
Amazing benefits, the team are incredible, you feel welcome
long hours, very strict in terms of time management, no clear career progression.
