Application

I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

Interview

They contacted me via email to set up an interview. The email led me to a site where you signed up for our own interview from a selected time frame. They told me it was either going to be over the phone or the FaceTime app. I interviewed over the phone.

Interview Questions

  • Finished off the interview with a role-play and that was difficult to me. I was only expecting straight question and answers so acting like the role of an at-home advisor really caught me off guard.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I've two interviews so far; the first one, was by phone like one week after I did participate in a career fair online with them, and the other FaceTime, one week after the phone one. Both were really nice with me and I'm currently schedule for a manager interview the next week, this interview is going to be 45 minutes, the two first ones were 20.

    This job is for at home advisor in Spanish, so some questions were in Spanish.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you reset and iPhone
      A customer drop her iMac, is not going on, she is late for her class and need her info, what do you said?
      What kind of email would you use and why?
      Roll play in the second interview
      Describe a day in my last job
      Describe a situation with a hard customer

      Some questions were in Spanish and, I'm expecting the 3rd interview to be 80% Spanish 20%english.

      I'm still waiting for the next interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    I applied in late August of 2012. They got back to me about a week or so later, with a brief phone interview. That was followed by two video interviews, via Skype about a week apart. Both of them were very professional, and the people I dealt with were very pleasant, and enthusiastic. I was hired, and started Oct. 1st

    Interview Questions

    • There are two interviews. One is about your technical knowledge, the other is about your life experience, and how it would apply to working at Apple. Don't be put off by the second interview, and don't treat it as a "formality". This interview will weigh as much as the technical one. They hire "people persons" in other words, customer friendly, enthusiastic folks who want to help people. Do not come across as a rigid corporate type, Apple is not a place for rigid corporate types.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple in April 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interview is done by telephone by an internal recruiter with Apple. She reviews the requirements of the position including shifts, salary, and training. If those requirements are agreed upon, they continue to the interview questions. They are mostly basic technical question with some minor role playing to demonstrate how empathetic you would be as well as your ability to explain technical issues in an easy to understand manner.

    Interview Questions

    • Because it was the intial interview, the question were all quite easy. The most unexpected question was "What is a CPU?". I found it to be unexpected because I couldn't imagine anyone applying for a technical support position who didn't already know what a CPU was.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Apple (San Antonio, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and took about a month for a random call asking for me to give them a call back. Called her back and verified an interview for that same day. Later on that day had the interview and it was more personality and not technical at all. Had a follow up interview the next day and the recruiter gave me some prep hints about looking up what an Operating System does, the difference between RAM and Storage. Also to know the difference between IMAP and POP email accounts. Interview was as expected technical slightly, but more about customer service and empathy. This recruiter told me that I would receive another interview from one last person. This interview was very short and the recruiter told me that I would hear something within 3 weeks. I had the offer in 2 days.

    No negotiating and it was low for my experience, but they do it standard across the board.
