    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Apple in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a friend submit my resume. Was brought in for in person interview. Hiring manager was supposed to spend 30-45 minutes with me spend 10 minutes then excused himself. Thought interview went very well aside from being asked questions that the interviewer admitted were trick questions. Got form letter few days later that I was not a match for them with no reason given.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got to the group interview where I was able to meet all the team members in the department that I applied to. 25 mins per person, total around 5 hours. My interview went well according to the recruiter, she quickly set me up for the final interviews with other departments. Few days before the interview, the recruiter notified me that the interview got canceled without giving any explanation. I spend a lot time to find out the reason from insider at Apple, turn out that the other department did not think I am quality for the position; I also have a similar background as the other department which could imperil them...according to the insider.

    Even though I want to try again and prove myself, after a second thought I think there is no reason to bargain for a job in a company where one department can easily Interference the rest of the department's business. Such political matters will definitely effect my loyalty if I actually work inside that company.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview was set up through school, was about a half hour long. Interview was very nice, we discussed the position and what the interviewer did for Apple. The meeting seemed to be more of a discussion of the job and what to expect if you were hired.

    About two weeks after the interview I was contacted through email to let me know they were not interested, it was nice to have a company contact you about their decision.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied the position from Apple.com and got the response from their HR to make an appointment of two 30 mins phone interviews. The interviews are all about technologies related to the position. No questions about resume. Questions are not too difficult (only basic concepts or ideas, ex sensitivity of a system).
