Technical Specialist

April - August 2018 • Lynnfield, MA

What I liked

I liked the people I worked with. They were always kind and very encouraging!

What I wish was different

The work schedule was tiresome, and the customers helped were more often than not abrasive or angry. This made working there for an extended period of time hard, because the customers were frankly not kind.

What I liked

The environment is really fun, it’s laid back and relaxed. The staff is awesome, we’re like a family. Everyone helps each other succeed which makes asking questions and getting help easy.

What I wish was different

That I was able to find a job right out of college, it took me a while to find a job, which I thought was very strange since I have a bachelors degree come from a renowned university.

Advice

Even if you don’t succeed the first few time don’t give up and opportunity might be just around the corner! Look outside your comfort zone and be excited to start new things.

Training provided is thorough. The atmosphere of the store is great between employees and managers. Everyone is there to support and help one another improve. Words of encouragement are offered by people in every position to support you and build confidence. Questions are encouraged at all times no matter how big or small and show willingness to learn and improve. They put a lot of importance on work-life balance and help you with your concerns.

Location Location Location. Manager and team were extremely helpful and eager for me to learn. Very fast paced.

What I wish was different

Wish the internship had been extended.

Advice

It was a lot of work, sometimes 50-60 hours a week. But it was very much worth it to move away for the summer and to experience the work load in that sort of supportive but fast environment.

Technical Specialist

August 2018 • Frisco, TX

What I liked

The environment of Apple is amazing. The management is superior to other places I have worked. Everyone there cares about your personal life and your personal goals. They want you to be you outside of the Apple doors. They don't care about your background or what you look like, they invest in YOU. Which to me, has pushed me in so many ways as a person and a leader.

What I wish was different

The only thing I wish would be different would be the hours. The Apple store is a retail job, so sometimes, the hours can vary quite a bit. I would love for it to be slightly more consistent, and it has been lately the more they get to know you and your routine. And unlike other retail jobs, there really is never a shortage of hours.

Advice

If you want a part-time job that provides you an amazing experience that will teach you real life skills such as leadership, positioning, patience, empathy, etc., then Apple is definitely at the top of my list. The pay is great, and the management works with you. However, this isn't an "easy" job. So you will need to put in quite a bit of work, so just be prepared.
