Finance Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Cupertino, CA
Anonymous Employee in Cupertino, CA
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Apple in October 2012.

Interview Details

Submitted a resume through my college's job website. I got a call back and had a brief 15 minute phone interview about my goals, etc. Had a second Skype interview with a second year employee who began as an intern. We got along great as she went to the same school with me. I had a second Skype interview a few weeks later with a 4th year employee and stumbled. He was not very friendly and I was a little underprepared.

Interview Questions
  • Gave me three job positions without descriptions and asked which I would like to do and why. Considering this would have been my first internship, I'm not sure how they wanted me to answer.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    Went through three rounds of interviews. Was caught off guard on the informality of the third interview and the lack of questions asked, more of a conversation.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Apple in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus career website and received an email to interview with Apple maybe a week later. Given a day and scheduled the time for interview. I met with someone that was an alum from my school who interned in the position I was interviewing for and was a couple years into the full-time program.

    The interview itself was very relaxed and casual. The interviewer was in a shirt and jeans and the interview was basically a conversation. Maybe a couple questions about some things on my resume but it was still back and forth with no technical questions.

    Interview Questions
    • It was the lack of difficult questions that leads me to believe I didn't get an offer for second round. We talked about so many things and I didn't use the opportunities to highlight skills and experiences. Almost too relaxed.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was a very long process. I was interviewed by a total of 6 people (including a lunch interview with one of the FDPs). The interviewers were amazing. Everyone was very nice, open-minded, and enjoyable. They are really looking for a fit - someone that has the "Apple Culture." There were a few technical questions, but nothing very "financy." I didn't receive any questions concerning solvency ratios, or bonds, interests rates and all of that. However, I was asked to brainstorm on how I would analyze a certain situation.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was for the internship program that led to the Finance Development Program. They described the rotation system that they have in place there. Give you quite a few minutes for you to ask them questions. They asked:

    Tell me about yourself.
    Why Apple?
    What's your favorite class?
    What's your least favorite class?

    And other things off your resume. They asked a lot about what I've learned from the stuff on my resume too.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Apple in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went through on campus recruiting and the interviews were all very behavioral. All the company cares about is if you would make a great fit. I was even told once that they could teach a monkey to do what they do, thus they just care if the person would make a good fit for the company. Although the company is very innovative, their business and finance departments are a little behind the times. Everyone is very nice and obsessed with Apple. You have to "drink the Kool-Aid" to fit in.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apple in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview is very casual. They asked me mostly behavioral questions. The person interviewing me was a recent graduated. It was basically looking for a fit. Second round was in Cupertino at their headquarters and I met with 4 different people, then went to lunch with FDPs. You meet with the person in charge of the post-graduate program. They were all very nice and I rarely received a technical question.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Apple in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Apple is a great company, one of my favorite's in fact. The interviews were not particularly strenuous, but the process was a marathon. I had seven interviews before they told me that I did not get the offer. I have yet to receive feedback on why I was not selected for the internship.
