Apple Sales Benchmarking: Retail Tab
I've completed the Retail tab of your attached spreadsheet, covering job postings, current employees, and salary ranges and averages for several job titles at Apple retail locations. Read on for a few additional notes!
Most of the job postings on Apple's site had openings in 25 countries; only the Technical Specialist posting had a different number with 24. Searches for Business Manager and Pro turned up no listings, and a search for Creative Pros gave me Creative job listings; I've added those numbers to the spreadsheet, but the actual Creative Pro title returned no results and no salary listings on Glassdoor. I was also unable to find any listings for retail Pro salaries on Glassdoor.
When searching for compensation figures, I stuck to the specific job titles on the spreadsheet, even though Glassdoor sometimes returned additional results with slightly different titles. Many of the listings had two salary ranges to calculate from: an annual salary range and an hourly pay range (Glassdoor's figures calculate an average annual compensation figure for hourly wages). In general, the lowest salary number on the spreadsheet is from the hourly listing and the highest is from the salaried listing. To get the average salary, I added the two averages for each range and divided by two. The Genius salaries are an exception; since there are multiple types of Geniuses, I averaged four different numbers together (Apple & Mac Geniuses, salaried and hourly).
Finally, I searched LinkedIn to get employee head counts for each job title. They all seem to check out except for Specialists, which returned over 21,000 results and likely includes many false positives (the "specialists" filter also includes Technical Specialists, for instance, so I've subtracted the number of Technical Specialists from the total number of Specialists returned by LinkedIn when adding that total to the spreadsheet).
I've added current employee head counts, job postings, and salary ranges and averages for several Apple retail job titles to the Retail tab of your attached spreadsheet.
