Intern Interview

Intern
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Apple in November 2011.

Interview Details – Met them at the career fair; they took a good look at my resume and offered an interview after a lengthy chat. Interview process started in-person with abstract questions, pattern recognizing activities (perhaps to measure problem solving skills), followed by more technical questions. They gave me a phone call interview after (which is not customary of the other intern positions I had applied for),and got the job two months after the call.

I interviewed at Apple in April 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, and went through three rounds of phone interview.

Interview Question – None of them are difficult. The first two engineers went through the projects in my resume, and then the manager asked me to do some simple calculations about basic CMOS questions. All questions are not difficult, but you need to give quick response because they assume you are quite familiar with those basic concepts.   Answer Question
