I jumped on with Apple Retail in early 2008. As it stands, Apple Retail has one of the better compensation packages for both fulltime and parttime employees. Medical/Dental/Vision, Stock Options, Paid Vacation, Etc. Before Steve Jobs left the company for the last time, he mandated that EVERY Apple Employee be eligible for Health Insurance. More recently, Tim Cook re-adjusted all of the pay compensations nationwide to be more in line with the higher paying/higher cost of living regions (NYC/LA/SF). That said, employees were discouraged from bringing bags into work. However, when bag checks were nessesary the managers at my store would do them WHILE you were clocking out. But that may vary store by store, as a result of this suit though, I imagine that Retail Chain Management will mandate that bag checks be done before or at clock-out, not after.
So, benefits, awesome. Pay, not bad. Stock options, yes.
BTW, the managers check each other's bags.
