  • line Learning and Adult LearnerAdults are taking a more preferred method of education by taking online classes versus face-to-face traditional classes, which to most is a more affordable means. The balance of family and work is a very important factor when adding college courses to your daily routine. Many challenges stand before the adult learner such as time management, finding correct school, reliable computer and internet, and budget to take classes. What about the instructors are the trained? Many parents feel that fear of going back to school but it's exciting at the same time. Many will be attending classes while their children are living that same journey to higher education. In today's society in order to get a good paying job or even sustain your current job education is extremely important. Nothing in life is easy but the experience of online education allows the opportunity for many to reach that goal of a college degree. Military co-workers serving in the Army were interviewed who are taking online classes. Education helped them personally and professionally with their career.Sergeant Major (SGM) Lambert was interviewed, he has served over thirty one years of active service the United States Army. Also, he has been the Senior Enlisted Advisor of the 82nd Airborne Division, one of the most decorated Army units in military history. When interviewed (Lambert, 2014) states 'if you don't take advantage of online courses you will fall behind in getting promoted and becoming a better soldier and overall person'.

What I like about the company

The Information revolution is changing our daily lives. With the rapid development of computer and internet, online commerce become quite common and plays an important role in the modern world. The online business has booming development in these few years. US online retail sales raised an average of 11% in the first three months of 2009 ('US Online Sales Up,' 2009). The growth of online sales may due to the growing number of consumers who shop online. In the case of Asia, survey reported 77.6% of Internet users have online shopping experiences in 2003 (as cited in To, Liao & Lin, 2007). Online shopping is very different from traditional shopping. Consumers cannot touch and check the product before purchasing it, which means they are at higher risk of fraud than traditional shopping. Consumers also have other concerns such as credit cards security of online shopping. Then questions should be raised: what is the advantage of online shopping? Why people shop online? In following paragraphs, the advantage of online shopping for the consumer and consumer's motivation to shop online will be reviewed and discussed. The main advantage of online shopping is convenient. Online shops open 24/7. People who live in remote areas do not need to speed long time on the traveling to the stores. Consumers who come from other cities/countries can easily buy the native and specialty goods by just a click instead of going to that cities/countries themselves. The relevant information of products can be received from any location in seconds. Study showed that 72% of online shoppers preferred surf online than go to retail store to attain information about a product (Lokken et al., 2003). Online shopping also has greater price information (as cited...The Information revolution is changing our daily lives.

What I dislike about the company

Online gambling has become the rage all over the world for entertainment purposes. Online slot machines have become one of the most popular gambling entertainments to hit the Internet. Online slot machines are aptly named pokies because when they were first introduced in places like Australia and New Zealand they carried symbols of fruits on playing cards. The name has stuck through the times and that is why they are called online pokies. Pokies are designed to capture people's attention and awe of all its glitter. The glitter comes in the form of lights, noises and just in general the sound effects that you are about to hit the jackpot. In fact playing online pokies gives the customers a much higher percentage in winning back their money. There are plenty of bonuses that are available when playing these types of online gambling games.Playing pokie online is good for the person who loves the game but hates to travel.

The following perks were offered to me

Company Culture

Apple is an amazing company, but there are still some issues where you feel as though managers pick favorites

Support from management

Management does the best they can, but sometimes they are more customer focused than employee focused and that can translate to the customer that the employee just wan't being helpful

Teamwork

Part of the core of Apple is to have amazing relationships with your peers

Freedom to work independently

95% of all Apple interactions are between a single employee and their customer(s)

Internal Communication

Apple has a huge company wide survey twice a year that allows employees to make suggestions for the company, they also love sharing success stories

Gender Equality

I have never felt treated differently, but I do know I get paid less than some of my male coworkers that were hired in after me

Attitude towards older colleagues

Apple doesn't care about your background or past, but more about who you are as a person and how you connect with people

Career Development

I find that there is definitely room for growth in the company, but there have been times when the steps needed for growth weren't fully communicated

Overall compensation for your work

If you were to compare my company to others, I definitely make more money than others, but within the company I feel that my position should be paid more.

Office / Work Environment

The store itself is made out of metal, so while it provides a very sleek look, it also makes it a very loud place to work

Environmental Friendliness

One of the main priorities of Apple is caring about the environment, so much to the point that some of the stores have literal trees growing in them

Work-Life Balance

Apple does it's best to give you the time off you would like, but it's not always possible

Company Image

I love working for Apple, but I don't like telling people because they then think that I can fix everything for them

Job Security

As long as Apple stays a company (and I follow the company guidelines), I am not worried about losing my job

Handicapped Accessibility

The store itself is handicap accessible, but the bathrooms are not

Workplace Safety

There have been many times when I have seen coworkers scaling shelves to reach things because the store is too tall for shorter women

Challenging Work

The reason it is so challenging is because I not only work in a retail environment, but I'm also having to deal with trying to resolve the technological issues of the customers' devices

Inclusive / Diverse

Apple has a very diverse culture, both with ethnicities and sexual orientations

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would change the system of transferring stores so employees don't lose their benefits if they have to move to a place where their closest Apple store doesn't have any openings at first

What I like about the company

I have loved working for Apple, it has helped me grow as a person for sure. There have been some really tough interactions with customers that have allowed me to learn how to deal with conflict as well as unique situations that have required me to think outside the box. Some days are most definitely more stressful than others, customers aren't always the nicest, but having amazing coworkers and managers makes even the worst days not too bad

What I dislike about the company

Managers need to learn how to stand by what their employees say instead of giving in to make customers happy
