Very Difficult Interview
Acoustic Calibration & Instrumentation Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Apple in January 2014.
Interview Details – I was notified a day in advance for a phone interview for what I believed was the Acoustic Calibration & Instrumentation Engineer position. I had friend at Apple give an inside referral and the interview ended up not even being for the specified position. It was just to see if I would be eligible to join the team. The interview felt like a final exam that dug into deep technical questions about DSP fundamentals and C++ topics.
Interview Question – What is a double pointer in C++? If a 18kHz signal is sampled at 32kHz what will happen, what frequency will the signal appear as? View Answer
Instrumentation Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in May 2012.
Interview Details – First I was called by Recruiter. They found me Through Linkedin. They set up a phone interview. Then a technical Quiz. And then they invite me on site. I was supposed to have interview with 8 people. I was late because of the flight delay. I was interviewed by just one Idiot guy. He did not know any thing about Hardware. He told me they are not going to continue interviewing. He told me I was not a good fit and asked me to leave. I did not expect such a large and famous company acting like a child. This was an experience for me to make sure whoever ask me onsite interview they know who they are looking for. I am designing hardware everyday in my current job.
Interview Question – Write a function to convert a character to Integer? View Answer

Software Instrumentation Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Apple in June 2010.
Interview Details – This was just a preliminary 1 on 1 interview at Apple's Cupertino campus. The hiring manager had to phone someone else to interview me because he couldn't make it. That person didn't seem prepared at all. Overall not a good experience, and I didn't get selected for the next round.
