    Mechanical Engineer Quality Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview was a phone interview that was in-depth. Went through resume and asked many questions about specific tasks that were completed. Due to the fact that it was an intern position i believe the questions were simpler than usual.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Detailed process with seven individual interviews. Very deep questioning to establish fit. The panel of employees followed a similar routine but questions were tied to the individuals area of expertise. The process was very good in that candidate left with a full grounding of how the local company functions and the culture of the organization.

    Interview Questions
    • Question: You don't have any of the skills to do this job, why are we even looking at you ? (In the end I was hired).   View Answer

    Straightforward with some minor movement back and forth. Very fair.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    I went into the store to ask about what the hiring process looked like, and they told me to submit my resume online. I got an email to attend a group hiring session, and was invited back for a 1:1. Then I got the job offer. A lot of correspondence was through email.

    Interview Questions
    • There were not difficult or unexpected questions. Just the normal, give me an example of a time you had to give or receive feedback. How did you turn a negative customer experience into a positive one.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for an obscene wage in the interview. What they offered was great, and I was happy.

    Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Apple in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    So I had been applying for about 5 months and do not get discouraged, my point is, keep submitting your application they'll take a look at it eventually.
    After that time they called me up and asked me to come in for my interview. At first the interview was in French and it was fairly straight forward, asking about past job experiences, why I'd want to work for Apple, what I'm particularly proud of and so on. Very generic background questions that are pretty much already described on your resume.

    The second interview was with another manager, the exact same questions but this time it was done in English.

    No problems if you're bilingual!

    Interview Questions
    • There are two questions: explain how you bettered a work environment before applying here at Apple.

      Who is your favorite manager and why?

    Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    1. Applied online, and didn't hear anything for about a month and a half.
    2. Invited to a 'Hiring seminar' - this was a large group presentation and interview (about 60 people). Basically a test to see who has an interesting, outgoing personality.
    3. Two hours after the group interview, I was invited to a one-on-one interview with the store leader. As far as I can tell, they were trying to see if I have an understanding and interest in customer service and the right attitude, focus and passion to work there. They didn't mind, for example, that I barely used Apple products.
    4. Background check.
    5. Job offer over the phone.

    This all happened in the space of about a week. But this varies a lot between stores, markets, times of the year etc, so don't take it too literally. I think mine was uncharacteristically easy because I got hired just before the holiday season when they were desperate to hire a huge number of people. (They hired about 60 people for my market of four stores alongside me.)

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me one thing in your career or education you've been the most proud of. (This seems very specific to the Store Leader in question though).   View Answer
    • Why Apple?   Answer Question
    • Can you cope with a hectic, intense work environment?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The attitude was very much 'take it or leave it'. The store leader phoned me and told me what position they'd hire me for, at what store, and what the wage was. I applied for full time Family Room Specialist, they gave me Part Time Specialist... They did, however, assign me to the store I put on the top of the preference list.

    Perhaps I could have negotiated, but they definitely wouldn't have been very responsive to it.
