Mac Specialist (Apple Store)
Pasadena, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Apple in June 2014.

Interview Details – If you are picked they email you for a group interview so be prepared for that.There is about 9 candidates that are within the group. They do ice breakers to get everyone's nerves out and have you introduce one of the candidates. It is the store manager and senior leader that do the interview process. By the way they take a lot of notes based off the answers you give to them.

Interview Question – Get to know all the latest on there products: hardware, software, and how it works. They will ask about all of it.   Answer Question
