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

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Apple in August 2013.

Interview Details – Contacted by HR via linkedin - sent the resume - set up the interview: 3 rounds of phone interviews. 1 round with the manager, introducing me with the current openings and went over my resume to find out where my interest and strength is. 2nd interview with an engineer on one team, asking my experience in his realm and decided that I should be a good fit for another team -- thank god they had several openings for my area. With that said, 3rd round was a talk with the engineer on that particular team, which was determined to be a smooth and pleasant conversation because both sides knew the result in advance.

Interview Question – Why did you go to XXX university for your grad program?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation because the compensation is shockingly good!
