I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple.
I applied in the past but never heard anything. I applied again in the end of August. Got an email a couple of days later saying that I will get an other email about a hiring event. I went it was very different. It was the best interview experience I've had. It was a group interview at a table with other candidates. The whole time you were being observed. I got an other email 7 days later for the second interview. My advice be yourself !

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Apple (New York, NY) in September 2015.
I was recruited on a online job fair 8/18. I was asked for a phone interview the same day. 1. Same day -This was my first phone interview (10-15 min). The interviewer was extremely nice and asked questions like: Why apple? Can you tell me about a time you had to help someone troubleshoot. Have you ever been fired? Are you okay with this pay? She expressed that she liked my answers and she wanted to move me to the next process. A interview one week later. 2. One week- This interview was on FT (30 mins) It was my first FaceTime interview so I was pretty nervous. I went over tons of questions on this job description from Glassdoor! This interviewer was also very personable. He asked questions like what did I like about customer service? Why Apple Then we role played 2-3 scenarios. (1) My son sent me a video of my grandsons first words but I can't hear the video? (2) I just got off the plane and my phone won't turn on. Do you have any questions for me? 3. One week (based off when u schedule online) The final interview! I received a email two days later saying they want to move me on to the next process they were most the same questions but my answer was never helped so I think this interview was more about your reaction to your troubleshooting not working. I was also asked how would I feel about working from home without coworkers. I got the job by the way!!! Sorry this is so long but I had to pay it forward to everyone who left questions it really helped me with this interview... And I hope this helps someone else! Best of luck
They offered more than I original asked for.

Interview amongst a panel of Apple manager for the expert positions. For regular Specialist employees start with a group interview, phone interview, and then a 1 on 1 interview. They ask you many question to try and get a feel for your personality.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Cupertino, CA).
Was being interviewed for two positions simultaneously and had a negative experience with both. Both involved phone screenings with HR and hiring managers and then an onsite interview for around 8 hrs consisting of back to back interviews with different team members. The interviews went well in both with very positive feedback, but for one of the jobs I was told they wanted me to speak to the Director before they made a final decision and that was to be a phone interview a few days after the in person interview. This individual was late to the interview by over 25 minutes and tried to rush the interview. Then they made comments that I was too young and green for the position, despite being filtered when I applied and meeting all position requirements. The feedback was very blunt and disheartening, perhaps due to the cultural background of the Director and them not realizing this was not appropriate. It was clearly age discrimination but since it was a phone interview it would be difficult to prove and I dropped the issue since I was still in the running for the second position. For the second position, I received a phone call a week after the interview from the HR Recruiter saying they were going to make me an offer and that I would receive a written offer within 24-48 hrs. After 4 days and no offer, I followed up and was told that last minute they decided to go with an internal candidate and they would not be pursuing my offer. This was very unprofessional and not to mention unethical. I would advise working for any company that treats its interview candidates this way. Apple might be a big name but it is not worth being treated terribly.

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apple (New York, NY).
I was contacted via LinkedIn to apply. Not having any retail experience (I'm a graphic designer), I was surprised and initially thought I was being spammed. But I needed a job so I applied and about 6 weeks later I was contacted via email for an interview. First interview was at the Apple Store in the Meatpacking district. It was a group interview. My group was 4 or 5 other females, interview by a female. We watched an apple video presentation about working in the store and then we were all asked the same series of questions and took turns answering them. The entire process took 45 minutes to an hour. I was contacted via email about 10 days later for a second interview that was at the Apple Store at Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island. It was very inconvenient to get to but I made it. This interview was a little uncomfortable. Again a group interview, about 5 or 6 of us. I was the only female. The interviewer and the other candidates were all guys. I probably was the oldest in the bunch as well. Another series of questions taking turns answering, like, describe a difficult customer experience you had, describe any issues you had with a previous management (a lot of the questions were the same from the first interview). I didn't really get a good vibe off this interview. About 2 weeks later I received an email saying that they went with someone else.
