    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online for Apple Retail two years ago. I got a call last summer and they asked me to come in for an interview. The interview was with two Apple Store managers and about 7 other candidates.

    They asked us personality questions, like "Describe your favorite sandwich", "If you won the lottery what would you do with the money" and the stereotypical "Why do you want to work at Apple"

    We sat in a circle with the two Apple employees and took turns answering the questions.

    Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brossard, QC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Apple in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    So I had been applying for about 5 months and do not get discouraged, my point is, keep submitting your application they'll take a look at it eventually.
    After that time they called me up and asked me to come in for my interview. At first the interview was in French and it was fairly straight forward, asking about past job experiences, why I'd want to work for Apple, what I'm particularly proud of and so on. Very generic background questions that are pretty much already described on your resume.

    The second interview was with another manager, the exact same questions but this time it was done in English.

    No problems if you're bilingual!

    Interview Questions
    • There are two questions: explain how you bettered a work environment before applying here at Apple.

      Who is your favorite manager and why?

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through there website. The online application was simple and easy to follow. There was no skill testing questions, but some involved your understanding of retail work ethic. For example: How would you deal with 'certain' situations; What is your idea of good customer service; etc.

    I was very excited for this position because of my past retail experience, and working with Apple product. There also seems to be a cheerful atmosphere in every Apple store in which I wanted to provide as well.

    After waiting for a couple weeks I had imagined that I did not qualify, and stopped thinking about it. Then, a month and a half later, I received a call. I was invited to a group interview at the Apple store.

    A small group of six met in the store at opening time. The manager came out and we proceeded to the Mall's cafeteria, where the group interview was held at a large table.

    First, we went around the table one by one providing details on who we were, and what accomplishments we have gained. I felt very under qualified - with four years of retail experience - compared to the competition.

    Second, the manager asked us normal interview questions. "How can your past experience help you in this position?" "What skills and talents can you bring to the table?" "What aspect of this position are you most interested in?" etc.

    Finally, the manager asked us to split up into groups and come up with an answer to "What does the Apple brand represent to it's customers?" My group followed up with how everyone sees the Apple brand as one of the best providers for customer service. The other group focused on the product and how it improves daily activities.

    The interview ended with the manager letting us know those that qualify will be called before the weekend. I was not called, but emailed for why I was not a selected candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was "If you can describe yourself in one word, what would that be?"

      This may be simple, but I have very rarely thought about this question in a serious matter. This needs to identify the kind of employee you are. One word to provide your work ethic; how you treat customers and co-workers; and how productive you are to others.

      Also since it was a group interview, if you had thought of a word and the person before you uses it, you have to copy them or rethink what you were about to say.

    Mac Specialist (Apple Store) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Apple in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back 2 months later. At first, it is a group interview. They applaud as all the candidates walk in the room. Different managers are there and are evaluating candidates at all time. They present what it's like to work at Apple, the different positions available and what will be the steps after group interviews.
    My interview was in the morning and around 4PM, I got a call for a second interview. This time, the interview was in the store itself with the Store Manager. It wasn't an interview as much as a discussion of what it was to work at Apple (the importance of customers, etc.).

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult (although it wasn't that difficult) was the various role playing situations during the group interview. We did a total of 4 situations.   Answer Question
