    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Apple in June 2012.

    Interview

    It was a very fun experience, however you do have to stand out in order to move on to the next interview process. It's normally a 2-3 interview process. I was interviewing for a new store opening so the process took a little bit longer but normally it's 1-2 interviews depending on the position you apply for.

    Apple At Home Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview

    3 interviews using webcam. Took a month. Questions range from customer service to technical. If you're really upbeat and energetic you may be able to get away with not knowing very much on the tech side since they teach that to you anyway.

    Work From Home Tech Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The 2nd interview was conducted via Skype, I am more than qualified for the position but was not made an offer with over 10 yrs experience. They are not as diverse as they are portraying i.e. the beats acquisition. It is all smoke and mirrors, it depends on who interviews you whether you get in or not. Do not let the picture of Shanana on there application site fool you... lets just say they are very diversity challenged when it comes to the better paying Tech Support jobs. It appears the back of the bus jobs i.e. Customer Service is were they would prefer to put certain people leaving the better paying jobs i.e. Tech Support for others, "you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth??..."

    Interview Questions

    • Don't worry about the questions, they are more concerned with seeing how you look, you know whether you fit the décor (wink wink). Ask yourself this what does a Skype interview have to do with Tech Support or a Work At Home position??... you catch my drift...   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Apple (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2015.

    Interview

    If you get an email for an apple hiring event do not ignore it! That is your ticket into the first group interview. I almost made the mistake of ignoring it. This first group interview is crucial; you will be put group with 20-30 people. They start with an ice breaker, next they will show you videos and ask for opinions make sure to try to stick out. After the videos you are put into even smaller groups and are asked questions about specific situations. Make sure to thank the employers in the room. try not to be nervous and be genuine.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Apple (Corte Madera, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Nothing like normal retail. Everyone by now knows about the BIG group interview/hiring events Apple does. It's after that you need to focus on. Essentially just be yourself, like having a conversation with an old classmate and you're catching up.
