    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apple in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    You first apply online where you can upload your resume and go through the typical application questions. The next day I received a e-mail from the store manager to attend a career seminar. The seminar lasted 2 hours. There was a group of about 20 who attended. When we first walked in all of the employees cheered and high-fived everyone. We watched a few short presentations and then all of the applicants had to tell the group their name, favorite apple product, and their favorite smell. We were then broken into groups of two. In the group we had to discuss the presentation that we watched and then stand up in-front of everyone and tell them our partners thoughts. Finally we were broken into groups of 4 and we had 10 minutes to come up with a skit or presentation that lasted 2 minutes. I believe that the managers on hand were looking at your personality and how you interacted with people. The day after the career seminar you receive a e-mail telling you if you made it to the next round of interviews. I did not make it that far.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    they asked all of the basic questions, but it was formatted much like a casual conversation, rather than a formal interview. all usual interview topics were covered (qualifications, strengths i would bring to the position, why i want to work for apple retail, etc.), but it was very informal. one disadvantage of trying to work for apple is the length of the hiring process.. almost 90 days, which is not good when you need work right away.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apple in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    I sat down in my interview with Kelley and was very warmly welcomed. He actually looked at my resume and asked questions about other places i worked as well as their preorganized questions. A lot of times he would be surprised by my answers and we would carry on a conversation about them for a few minutes. I only went through the 1 interview, but everyone around me seemed really nice and friendly.

    The process took 4 days - interviewed at Apple in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    When I first got the call from the Cherry Creek Apple Store in Denver Colorado, I was told about the job I'd applied for. The basics of the job. I talked on the phone with them for about 30 minutes, as they asked a few broad questions; Did I think I was a fit for the job they'd just described, How many years of retail and customer service experience did I have, questions like that. I was then told that they wanted a one on one interview.
    When I went in for that interview, I had about a ten minute wait, in which I was instructed to walk around and watch how the store moved. When we finally sat down, they asked me what I noticed first. It was definitely the customer service that caught my eye. Anyone who's been into an Apple store knows that it's chaotic, but through the chaos, all of the employees tend to be laughing or smiling. That's what I noticed. The people who interviewed me joked, and laughed with me. All together, the interview was super chill, laid back, but I ended up getting the job!

    The base pay was higher than the average job, and I transferred stores when I moved, and I told them that I thought I was worth more, and they said, "We do too!" They gave me a raise, they were really great about it.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Apple in November 2007.

    Interview Details

    It went very smoothly. The interview was to transfer from another position in another Apple Store to a new position in a new store. The interview which I received was a one on one interview with the Store's manager. I have also participated in group interviews on the other end of the spectrum with Apple.
