Application Details

I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Apple in April 2011.

Interview Details

Submitted resume online and got an email from recruiter for an on campus interview. Its about 45 mins long. Asked about your background and projects. Couple technical question regarding computer architecture and digital circuit. The guy was really cool and laid back. He asked if I had experience with verification tools/software and why I want to work for Apple.
He was really passionate about his job and was very knowledgeable.

    Interview Details

    just ask me whether i can have a co-op for 6 month.
    and all the questions are about technical questions
    those questions are various, but basic
    in the 3rd stage interview, they required a video interview by webcam.
    there are five guys asking questions. all are technical questions again.
    in the end, they did not response any results, but i think it was failed.
