    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Apple in February 2014.

    It took 3 weeks for the process. The HR emailed me for dates and I was told that there would be a technical phone interview on data structures, algorithms. I had two back-to-back one hour technical phone interviews. I was asked to write code for one question and submit it later. I was asked questions on hash map, heaps, computer architecture etc.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Apple in November 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through job fair at the conference, contacted via recruiter *after* matching position (for my case, Accessibility team), had two phone interviews with an engineer first, and the manager next. I got emails after each interview that the feedback from each interview were positive, but had no response like for a month, so I contacted back to let them know I am waiting but they said the company is pursuing another candidate which sounds ridiculous for me...

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    interviewed at Apple in April 2013.

    Interview

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

    Interview Questions

    • 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
