    Apple Retail Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    When you get there, they clap for you. Then you sit in a group of 20-30. You introduce yourself in front of everyone. Not really hard unless you're a shy person. We watched videos on what the positions are like. They care about the making the customers happy and building relationships rather than just sell the product. After the vids there were Q&A's. Then we split into groups of 5-6. Did role playing. My group was so funny so it was very easy to get used to everyone. Then we chose a number and the number we chose, we would be asked a random interview question. It was really easy. About 2-3 questions. They then told us the timeframe in which we would hear back and that was about it. It was fun for me because it wasn't like the normal interview. You were really interactive with everyone. I did the first interview yesterday and waiting to hear back.

    I applied online – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    Very laid back interview process; the interviewers were managers at the local stores and were very friendly. They were open about the interview process and its timeframe, requirements, etc. I was not called back for a second interview, but still found the entire process to be very beneficial. Overall, it was a positive experience and helpful for future interviews.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    Internal reference. Phone screening was simple and aimed at making sure I was pleasant and well-spoken. In-person interview was with head manager and senior manager along with two other candidates. Was simply asked about my background and times I experienced or gave great customer experiences. I was pleasant and to the point, which seemed to get the job done. Was brought in for a second in-person interview with the regional director and it was the same deal. Nothing too outlandish-- they just want to make sure you're a positive, optimisitic person who has a strong sense of what good customer service is. Showcasing passions outside the workplace is a strong way to position yourself as well. Passions are key at Apple.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Apple.

    Interview Details

    I only had just one Skype Interview. The interview was mostly behavioral and situational. There were no technical questions about their products. Basically its all about saying how you will be empathetic towards the customer and address their emotional state before addressing their technical issue. The asked questions like, "Say a customer called in and was angry about how he just dropped his new iPad and the screen cracked, how would you react?" They also asked about your interest in technology and just basic things about previous jobs I've had

    I had the first phone interview, some basic behaviour questions had been asked. After 1 week, I was told to have the second phone interview. They had some tricky questions, but it's controllable. Then I was informed that they want me to have the third round, which is face to face. This is where I am at.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Apple in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in to work on my Mac, hit it off with the genius pretty well, showed my knowledge of computers through the conversation (generally unnecessary but helpful in relating to him), asked about work life in Apple retail- let HIM bring up getting started in applying, got his card- (got his reference).

    Applied online, hand delivered my resume.

    Two interviews... one more today.

    I'll finish this once I finish this interview.
