    MBA Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Cupertino, CA

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume through an employee referral, was contacted by a hiring manager because he said my resume and cover letter jumped out at him as providing diverse experiences and showing I had a real passion for Apple. Then had three interviews, two phone/iChat and 1 in person. Overall, they asked tough, probing questions, but thorough preparation made me feel good about the process. Ultimately, received an offer for an intern position for the summer.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked me to describe specifics about exactly what MY roles had been in certain team projects. Any time I would say something like "we determined that the pricing at $500 was the best strategy..." he would stop me and say what was your role in making that decision. What questions did you ask? What did you suggest, etc. He wanted me to focus on my actions and roles and avoid generalizations.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Family complications made it harder to go to Northern Ca for the summer, and I had a couple of competing offers that were for more money and closer to my family. I don't regret the decision, but it definitely would have a been a great project and summer at Apple.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Apple's big emphasis is on fitting your prior background to a specific need they have, even for an MBA summer internship. Apple is not keen on hiring people for positions not in line with their work history, so if you are looking to make a career switch, it will be very difficult unless you can make a clear, unambiguous linkage between your prior experience and the needs of the intern opening. Truly understanding what is the culture of Apple and their thinking about consumer products is key. When you are asked "Why Apple?", the wrong answer is "I love my iPhone." The interview is almost all behavioral, but there are targeted functional questions depending on the position.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Absolutely no negotiation. Either you take their somewhat low MBA intern salary, or the next person in the line of MBAs salivating to get the position will.
