    Human Factors Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    The process towards the interview was very straightforward and accomodating. I was contacted within seven days after a 30 minute interview with a recruiter and invited for two days of on-site interviews. I was also given a set of tasks to complete and send back prior to the scheduled interviews. Tasks were definitely appropriate for the position, but were held very open-ended (i.e., formulated in such a way that one could really spend any amount of time and effort on them).
    The in-person interviews were thorough, and >10 people talked to me in private sessions, but all interviews were also very friendly. The majority of questions asked me to explain my background, and for me to relate my background to a potential role at Apple.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical questions were all relatively straightforward to answer. I had to think most when asked what requirements/characteristics of the job would make me walk away - I had spent most of my prep time trying to develop arguments why I'd be good for the job.   Answer Question

    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.

    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

    Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brossard, QC (Canada)
    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?
