Apple Specialist Interview

Apple Specialist
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Apple in September 2009.

Interview Details – Was called in for interview within 2 days after online application. Was instructed to go to the Apple store in Pasadena on a Sunday @ 7pm. 20 applicants attended with two managers doing company orientation. They asked us to introduce the person next to us then followed by group product presentation. The managers informed us that they are looking for applicants who will fit the 'Apple culture' meaning hip, friendly and will make customers comfortable upon entering the store. Should be able to present products in a non-intimidating way - in short laymen terms. Afterward, we were asked to fill in an information sheet which includes T-shirt size and hours of availability. The presentation was fun but nerve wracking at the same time because the managers are doing score sheets and you can see their facial expressions when you did a good job or you suck. The process went on for 2 hours - I was tired and hungry after LOL

Apple Specialist Interview

Apple Specialist
London, England (UK)

I applied online - interviewed at Apple in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, 3 weeks later I got an email about a hiring event. This event was hard, everyone was fighting for a place...people speaking over people, talking about how they adore apple...bear in mind that they prefer personality over how much you know about the product. At the end of this interview they stated that the positions we were applying for will be available in june/july. I felt that I did okay but I wasn't too confident. However I got through to the second interview. This was with two other people and two managers - basically competency questions were asked...was a pretty relaxed interview. Got invited to the final stage interview with a whole bunch of people - basically was the same as the second stage but they were just confirming to see if you were right for the job.
September now and I still haven't been contacted to start - so make sure you don't leave your current job immediately as I was about to do.

Apple Specialist Interview

Apple Specialist
Bath, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Apple in June 2010.

Interview Details – They just really wanted to see you, as if reality, working as a Specialist. There were quite a few mixed questions, ranging from the generic, to see how your brain works, and more specific ones. I was asked to pretend one of the interviewers was an uneducated customer, and show them the iPad.

A very enjoyable experience

Interview Question – Do you think the iPad is missing a lot of features (like USB and a camera)?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was about to go to university and wouldn't have the time to travel to work.
