    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    I tried to work at Apple and got all the way up to the 2nd interview. The first one was quick and they asked me about my previous work experience and explained how the process for hiring would go if they decided to continue with me. The second interview focused on my experience with apple products, when I was willing to work, and why I wanted to work with Apple. I didn't pass that one because my school schedule didn't allow me to work the hours they needed.

    was emailed to attend the hiring event. Attended along with 23 other people, very calm interview no trick questions. the majority of the event was broken up into group activities. STAR questions. Very informative. The managers will sit in the back of the room while each group gives presentations. If youre not a people person then do not attend the seminar.

    Interview

    The interview is broken down into three sections. The first section was the questions while the prospective employees were in a group. The second was with the assistant manager who asked you questions about your personal reasons for the job etc. The last stage was the store manager explaining their culture and asking if you have questions. Its not a difficult thing, just be yourself!

    Great people to interview with. Its all about confidence and knowing your goals and what you bring to the Apple Store. They don't necessarily look at your resume but ask you more common sense questions and your past experience.

    • No difficult moments or unexpected questions. Just be confident and don't make up stories about you. Mostly common sense type questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Had many group interviews at a local hotel. Got a call back the same day for another interview later in the week. Casual interviews, I dressed up too much I was later told, when I wore business casual attire. Eventually, had two one-one interviews at the local food court in the mall at which the store was located.

    Interview Questions

    • Know your Apple products, there are opportunities to stand out when they ask you about certain photos and references. (During Group Interviews)

      Why Apple?
      How many Apple products do you have?
      How would you handle this or that situation?
      What makes you a good fit for the team?
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. It wasn't going to be fair to pay me more than the other guys who have Master degrees.... In Philosophy and Graphic Design.
