According to technology site AppleInsider reported that many Apple fans, Apple retail stores Apple Store work is simply a great honor, but the real staff does not think so. Instead, they feel that low income job, promotion of small space, and the work environment a little "cult" means. Recently, foreign media in the UK Apple Store employees were interviewed, listened to their big Tucao. These employees said, part-time Apple Store employees is difficult to positive, but in order to enter management positions even more difficult.
"When I joined Apple Store several years, we store after another for a 5-8 manager," an interview with an anonymous employee said. "But the manager, only one is truly from Apple grassroots level rises, the other from all other companies directly 'airborne' to."
It is reported that Apple has in fact been provided for staff, "Leadership and learning" training, to help them adapt to management positions, but after all these years, Apple Store level employees rarely get the opportunity for promotion.
In addition to the narrow rising channel, the rich and powerful Apple on the payroll is relatively stingy. It is reported that the UK Apple Store hourly employees is 8 pounds (about 76 yuan), they can not get any sales dividends, many employees themselves are not willing to buy Apple products. If you like a consultant at the Genius Bar, you can make more money, but this is due to the work we are disgusted, because working here, you will often scolded by angry customers, consultants and some even received death threats .
In addition, many Apple Store employees to reflect the atmosphere of some strange, people have become believers and Steve Jobs of Apple products, shop and even a policy called "fearless feedback" to encourage employees to share working methods without reservation or other employees advice (or even negative). As a result, the relationship between colleagues is easy to deadlock.
Although there is no commission on all sales, but Apple Store employees have tremendous selling pressure, they need to sell as many AppleCare service, for example, if you sell a Mac incidentally, did not sell an Apple Care, will by the competent curse.
Finally, Apple also require employees to establish a "family-like" relationship with customers, but in fact this approach is a waste of time, it will seriously affect their quality of service.
