    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Apple (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, then through employee referral. I received an email a few weeks later and scheduled a phone interview. Two weeks later, I received an invitation to a hiring event in Minneapolis. Apple flew me there and paid for all of my expenses, including my hotel stay. The first round of interviews consisted of a tour of an Apple Store, Q&A with Store Leaders and Managers, and two group presentations. We were then taken back to the hotel where we each had 2 one-on-one interviews with Store Leaders and Managers. One month later, I received an offer over the phone.
