Director Technology - Marketing Communications Interview

Director Technology - Marketing Communications
Cupertino, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Apple in April 2012.

Interview Details – Started out with a phone screen and then they flew me in for an in person interview. The process is particularly brutal especially if you have to fly out from the east coast the night before. It's back to back interviews all day long. They get you lunch and give you coffee/water all day. The room I was in was like a living room with 4 chairs around a coffee table.

The interview itself was a little bizarre. I was interviewing for a technology position in marcom but I didn't speak to any technology people when I was there. All marketing and design. I knew this going in and was given background on each individual but it still threw me off a bit. There is one particular interviewer I will mention. He walks into the room and says, do you have any questions? No introduction, no questions about my background, nothing. I interview a lot of people and find this tactic sort of odd. Definitely have your story down and if you really want to work there make sure to express how creative you are and how you have worked with creative in the past.

Apple is a very different company and is very secretive. I knew this going in and had a feeling my ideas would go against the grain there and I was right. They did let me know that it wasn't going to work out a couple of weeks after the interview which I thought was great. Better than not hearing anything. My experience with their HR was great. So that's that. Not that bummed that I didn't get it. It sort of sounds like a frustrating place to work with no one knowing about anything anyone else is working on.

Interview Question – There weren't really any difficult or surprise questions. Know your own stuff and sell yourself in a creative light.   Answer Question
