    Around 2 months after I submitted my resume for Apple software engineer position, I got a call from the hiring manager. He asked me what was the good day for the interview. It took half day for meeting 5 people. It was long hour interview for me. Each interviewer spent ~ 30 minutes and asked ~ 4 questions. Each interviewer asked questions in the different areas.

    Entretien

    Hey guys! Here's my review of Apple's interview process. I hope this helps any potential Apple employees in their quest to join Apple! So I applied back in September actually. I didn't hear back at all. I then re-applied at the beginning of this month again and I heard back within a week about attending the hiring event.

    Hiring Event: I read so many articles and nearly all of them said that the hiring event would have 70+ people. Mine only had 15 so I guess I lucked out a little. We were told to sign in and wait. Make sure you start smiling and greeting every Apple employee you see as soon as you enter the hotel?banquet hall, etc. They will start grading you the moment you enter. Start up a conversation with a couple people. This shows you're a people person and not a wallflower. We were lead in shortly after and we had introductions. All of the Apple employees introduced themselves and then we introduced ourselves. We were asked to say something about ourselves that is unique. After introductions, we were broken up into groups of 5. We passed around an iPad that had questions on it and took turns answering the questions. Make sure you seem engaged and try to tell a story with your answer. Don't just give a one word answer. Once that was over, we re-convened in the big group. We were shown videos about Apple and everyone gave a rundown about their role. After that, they asked if we had questions. Make sure you have some ready! Good ones too. Questions that will get them thinking and challenge them. They like that. I was offered the next interview right after the hiring event. It took roughly 45 minutes.

    Second Interview: I had the second interview two days later at the store that I will be working at. It lasted about 30 minutes. It was all personal questions. They want to get to know you so make sure you have good answers for questions such as, "What's your hobby?", "What are you passionate about?", "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?", "Why Apple?". Don't give one word responses. Again, craft a story with your words. Think of a personal experience and relate that to the question. I was offered the the interview right after.

    Third Interview: I had this interview 2 days after the second one. I expected to have a one on one but I had an interview with another gentleman. Keep in mind this isn't meant to be a competition and chances are the person you are interviewing alongside didn't even apply for the same role as you so don't get nervous. Try to speak first when possible. This interview had harder questions but if you remain calm and think for a second, you should be okay. I was asked questions like, "Name a time where you had to deal with an unruly customer", "Name the most profound experience you had with a customer", "Name a time where you were overwhelmed with projects and how you dealt with it". Again, not to awful. All in all, this interview challenged me to think outside the box and craft my answers accordingly. I got a call 2 hours later inviting me to attend the fourth interview.

    Fourth Interview: This is usually the last interview for most people unless you are applying for a higher role. This interview was days after my third interview. It took place with the market leader, myself, and two other gentlemen who also applied for jobs. This one was more technical in nature so heads up. They can ask you anything from the 3 Mac's Apple offers, difference between android and iOS, difference between an SSD & HDD, explain RAM, Hard Drive, & Processor, etc. If Apple is launching a new product, know that product inside and out. I was only asked one technical question however. I was also asked what my passion in life is so when asked that, let the passion soak up the room! Let your passion take over and encapsulate everyone! I was told I'd get a response within 24-48 hours and I got one 4 days later with an offer. Don't worry if you don't get a call within the 24-48 hour time frame. Apple prides themselves on reaching out to their applicants. You will get a call.

    In conclusion: Apple looks more at how you talk than what you know. Their whole mantra is, "we can teach you about technology but we can't teach you to be confident, talk to people, not be an mean, etc." So keep that in mind. It's okay if you don't know the answer to a question but don't just say "I don't know". Apple loves stories so let your inner J.K. Rowling out! All in all, be confident, smile a lot, don't be nervous, and stay calm! That will take you very far in the job process! Good luck everyone!

    I posted the interview as "difficult". My reason was not that the questions were difficult, but rather that you have 4+ interviews so it becomes difficult to keep the energy going, not to repeat yourself too much, come across personable, etc. Hope that helps!

    Submitted profile online and surprisingly got a call from the hiring manager about two weeks later. Scheduled a time to come in for a hiring event. I was there with 3 other people. We passed around an iPad and answered questions. Got a call to come in for a second interview two days later. Second interview was the same with a store leader and two other people, one from previous group. We were asked typical interview questions. Next day, got a call for third interview which was basically a group conversation with a couple different people. Very next day I got a call with a job offer contingent upon background check.

    The interview process was quite lengthy. It consisted of four different interviews of me. The first was a group interview, then one with a manager, then with one of the senior managers, the final was with the store and market leaders. I enjoyed the process because I got to meet many of my superiors before even working there.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé une entrevue à Apple (Miami, FL (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    I’ve interviewed on multiple occasions at four different locations. Once you submit your resume it can take anywhere from a day to a month to get an invite. If you are lucky enough to get an invite to interview you will be notified by email to rsvp a spot on a particular day and time, usually 8:00 or 9:00 am. Depending on the location of the store you applied to the interview can be either in the store itself before the store opens or at a designated location outside the store. Info and directions will be provided by email once you rsvp. The first interview is always a group interview with at least five other candidates. You will fill out a form asking for your name, email, contact phone number, your availability, which four locations is your preferred to work at and what Apple products you are familiar with. Once everyone has finished filling out the form the interviewer will collect all the forms along with the individual’s resume and the interview will begin. Every interviewer has had a different approach as to how they conduct the interview but all will follow three steps. First the interviewer will ask the candidates to introduce themselves, tell the group a bit about themselves and why they want to work at Apple. Second the interviewer will pass around an iPad. Each candidate will tap on a random number from 1 to 6 on the screen and answer the question that pops up. Depending on the interviewer only that candidate may answer that question or all the candidates may take turns answering the same question. And third and final step the interviewer will take any questions you may have. Once the interview is over you will be notified by either email or phone call whether you have moved up to a second interview. In my experience if you are emailed you did not make it. Phone calls are reserved for candidates that have moved on to a second interview. I have only made it to a second interview once in the multiple times I’ve interviewed. The second interview will be a one on one with the leader in charge of the department which you have applied to and will consist of more personal in-depth questions about your personality and to describe why you are the best candidate for the job. Be prepared for a lengthy interview process as I have heard from former co-workers currently working at Apple that you may have up to five interviews before getting hired.

    The group interview was great and a very different and interesting way to learn about everyone. Unfortunately, if you do not have retail experience your chances of getting hired are very slim.

    The first interview was a group interview, held with about 8 other people. Whoever did well got a follow up interview. My second interview was with the manger herself, now what i noticed from the start was that surprisingly she was unprepared. She called me by a totally different name, and to follow that up during my interview she was on her phone and then went to take a call and left me alone for a solid 20 minutes.
